The annual Fall Festival at West DeFuniak was a huge success. Students, parents, family friends, and staff had a wonderful time. From ring toss to hay rides and plinko, students enjoyed playing games and winning prizes. With Mr. Hight's Famous Chili Dogs, pizza, boiled peanuts, and cotton candy, there was plenty of food to munch on. Thank you for making this year's Fall Festival an enjoyable night for everyone!

Governor Scott Closes All K-12 Public Schools, State Colleges, State Universities and State Offices to Begin Preparations Immediately
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Today, Governor Rick Scott is directing all public K-12 schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices to close Friday, September 8 – Monday, September 11.
Governor Scott said, “Today, I am directing the closure of all public schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices for their normal activities effective Friday through Monday, to ensure we have every space available for sheltering and staging. Floridians are facing a life-threatening storm in Hurricane Irma, and every family must prepare to evacuate. Our state’s public schools serve a vital role in our communities as shelters for displaced residents and staging areas for hurricane recovery efforts. Closing public schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices will provide local and state emergency officials the flexibility necessary to support shelter and emergency response efforts.”
