We would like to thank Rev. Dr. Jeff Spicer and members from Portland Methodist church for their generous donation of water bottles for our students.

Due to COVID19 restrictions, water fountains are turned off, and students are encouraged to bring water bottles to school with them. This donation will help our students that need water throughout the day.

Thank you all so much! FES loves our generous community members.

We would like to thank Sacred Heart Hospital Staff for their generous donation of school supplies for our students. Your donation has helped our babies so much!

Orientation will be a little different this year due to Covid19 restrictions. We had to split it into 2 different days and limit the time for each session. You will be receiving a letter closer to the start of school with your child's homeroom teacher and other important information.
We are so excited to have the students back and look forward to a great 2020-2021 school year.


The WCSD is asking our families to commit to one of the three educational options for their children/students for the fall semester of the 2020-2021 school year. Our goal is to have confirmed feedback from all families by July 20. The below decision will be a semester-by-semester commitment. Parents/guardians will need to complete one Student Intent Form for the 2020-21 School Year for each student in their household. To access and complete the Student Intent Form, go to the WCSD website.

Superintendent A. Russell Hughes will hold a live virtual town hall to discuss the WCSD Reopening Plan with a live Q & A session. Monday, July 13, 2020 6:00-7:15 p.m.

Happy Nurse's day!

May 6, 2020

Please help us wish Nurse Debbie a very happy Nurse's Day! She is the kindest, most patient person on this planet. It doesn't matter if it's the sniffles, a band-aid or an emergency, she handles every child (and occasional teacher) with compassion, love and grace. We love you Nurse Debbie and we are sorry we can't honor you in person today.

Happy Staff Appreciation Day 2! Today we spotlight our cooler than cool 3rd, 4th, ESE and Special Area Teachers. They are unbelievable in their dedication to our FES Wildcats, and of course special thanks to Mrs. Saltsman for another great video.

FES loves our teachers and staff. Today we want to thank and honor our Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade Teachers. We love you all! Thank you Mrs. Saltsman for these incredible videos

?COVID-19 Update April 29, 2020


The Walton County School District would like to share three updates.

First, food distribution is being moved to Wednesdays in the month of May. Please plan to pick up food from our five locations or receive food from one of our 70 bus stops on these Wednesdays in May - May 6, 13, 20, and 27. Food sites will remain the same - Paxton, Mossy Head, Maude Saunders Elementary, Walton Middle, and Freeport High School. Times will remain the same for sites (9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.), and bus routes will also remain the same.

Next, Superintendent A. Russell Hughes has prepared an update for parents and students in the form of his monthly video. The video will be released later this week. Please look for it, and watch for details about academics, graduation, and more.

Finally, the Walton County School District has a new communication feature. Parents, students, and other stakeholders can text questions to 850-204-9667. Through this new number, the district will be able to provide a quick response for any issues or concerns that may occur with virtual learning. Text submissions are immediate, and a staff member should respond to you quickly.
