2700 N. Oleander Ave.
Visitors to Seabreeze High School are required to check-in at the welcome center located at the entrance to our school. Visitors will be asked to state their purpose of the visit and will be sent to the main office where they will be asked to present a PHOTO ID, then issued a visitor pass which must be worn at all times during their stay. Visitors are asked to please park in the front parking area and proceed directly to their specified destination. Visitor passes are to be returned to the main office when exiting the campus.
Vehicles While On Campus
All staff, student and visitor vehicles on campus are locked and no weapons or illegal contraband are permitted to be in vehicles while on the school campus. Posession of a concealed weapons permit DOES NOT remove this prohibition.
Any questions, contact the main office 386.258.4674
ATTENDANCE Check-Out policy and procedures
Under Florida's compulsory school attendance law, each parent/legal guardian of a child within the compulsory attendance age is responsible for such child's school attendance. Compulsory school requirements shall apply until the student turns eighteen, graduates or until the parent/legal guardian signs the declaration of intent to terminate school enrollment.
Read STUDENT ATTENDANCE POLICY in the Code of Conduct manual that was sent home. As high school absences can result in loss of permit/driving privileges for students, IT IS IMPORTANT TO CALL AND REPORT any EXCUSED student absence as soon as possible.
Please call (386)258-4674 Ext: 54617 before 11:00 A.M. to excuse Absences/Tardies or call Ext: 54616 for Checkouts and provide the following information:
1. Students name and ALPHA CODE (XXXX)
2. Date of absence
3. Caller's Name & Call Back #
4. Brief reason for absence/tardy/checkout
This will ensure an accurate attendance report and alleviate problems with make-up work.
The attendance office does not assume the parent is aware of the child not being at school. You are to call school same day of the absence so the student is not considered truant. This also applies to late arrivals and leaving campus.
*This applies when excusing late arrivals or early checkouts. For excused early checkouts, call 30 minutes prior to checkout time. It is required you come to the attendance office to sign the student out. Early checkouts end 15 minutes prior to the end of the school day.
* Lates to Period 5 (after lunch) require documentation to be excused.
* Freshman students and students who do not qualify for off campus privileges cannot go off campus unless the parent/guardian comes into the attendance office and signs the student out.
* Excused absences should be for the following reasons: student illness, family emergency, death in the family, medical appointments, and religious holidays.
* For students with chronic illnesses resulting in excessive absences, a parent must provide an emergency care plan from the student’s doctor. This must be submitted to the school (nurse) each school year.
* As a last resort, school social workers may seek criminal prosecution of parents for noncompliance with the Florida Compulsory Attendance Law. (Refer to student attendance policy in the Code of Conduct manual)
What happens when YOU don’t attend school regularly?
The Florida Legislation has enacted requirements that schools report to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) the names of those students who have failed to satisfy attendance requirements. Specifically, this refers to those students who accumulated fifteen unexcused (excluding out of school suspension) absences within 90 calendar days or who have withdrawn from school under one of the state designated dropout codes. The legislation further provides that those students who fail to satisfy attendance requirements will be ineligible for driving privileges.
It is extremely important that emergency cards be updated each school year and throughout the school year. These should also include any person who is allowed to pick up your student from school in the event we cannot contact you in an emergency.
If your student has an emergency care plan, please be sure to have your doctor update an “Emergency Health Care Plan” form for the nurse so we are aware of any emergency issue involving your student.
Any medication your student is required to take during school hours requires a form be filled out. This form “Authorization for School Personnel to Administer Prescription Medication to Student” must be completed by the student’s parent/guardian and the doctor must sign and state how the medication is to be taken. The medication must be clearly marked in its original container.
Any questions? Please contact our school nurse, at 258-4674 ext. 54898
Flu Season Tips
While it’s possible to get the flu year-round, the fall and winter months are prime flu season (and staying indoors makes it even easier to pass illnesses on to the people you love). With the right plan, you can help avoid the flu as best as possible and be prepped if it does hit your home.
FIRST, PRACTICE HEALTHY HABITS.
THEN, BE PREPARED.
Most importantly, take some time off. It is important if you are sick with the flu to stay home from work or school to prevent further spreading of the flu to others. The flu can last longer than a cold and you’ll need to recuperate. You’ll be back on your feet soon enough.
Volusia County Schools FRM Program

Participation in other Federal assistance programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) also provides automatic eligibility. Please contact your school to determine if you need to fill out an application.
If you are eligible for unemployment compensation or The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), you may also be eligible for free or reduced price school meals. Please contact your school or district for more information.
