Please join us as we honor our 5th Graders for their hard work and dedication to Van R. Butler Elementary.  We wish you all the best as you continue your educational journey in middle school.

VRB Familes,

Please see the End of Year - Pick-Up & Drop-Off schedule beginning Monday, May 18th.  The days and times listed in this schedule have been dedicated for you and your child to pick up the items that were left at school before spring break.  These items will include student belongings from the classroom, individual picture proofs if you haven't picked them up already, and any other times the teachers want to pass along.  Unfortunately, yearbooks and class pictures will not be inlcuded in these items as we do not expect to receive them until the beginning of June.  Additionally, this is the time to return any At Home Learning paper packets or WCSD computers, along with any other items that below to the school.

The teachers have organized your belongings and are excited to see you all beginning next week.  Please notice the distribution locations as we will be utilizing both the primary and intermediate car lines.  If you are unable to come to the school during your child's designated time, we have sibling and make up days built into the schedule.  Items for pick up will only be available during the times provided.

If you have any questions, please call the school at 850-622-5040.

COVID-19 Update April 18, 2020

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis held a press conference today, April 18, 2020, where he stated "Today I am also announcing that our K through 12 schools will continue with distance learning for the duration of the school year."

Upon receiving a formal statement from the Florida Department of Education, Superintendent A. Russell Hughes will release an update with more specific information.

COVID-19 Update April 2, 2020


Parents, we want to ease your mind regarding food.  Governor DeSantis issued a new executive order which defines essential services during our COVID-19 Emergency.  One of those essential services is food distribution in which the Walton County School District is providing for our community during this pandemic. 


Food distribution will continue as scheduled today, Friday, and Monday (April 6th).  Beginning, Tuesday, April 7th, Superintendent A. Russell Hughes has streamlined food distribution to minimize exposure to COVID-19 and to also help you maximize your resources (gas costs and time).  Our revised plan will focus on a single week day distribution - Tuesdays.  On Tuesdays, parents will be provided with 10 meals per child (five breakfasts and five lunches).  Our five food distribution sites will remain the same (Paxton, Mossy Head, Maude Saunders Elementary, Walton Middle, and Freeport High School); however, transportation routes will adjust slightly due to the larger distributions (please see the attached list).  Our revised plan will begin April 7th and run every Tuesday for the month of April (April 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th).  On Tuesdays, food distribution sites will stay open longer - from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. - to accommodate the larger amounts of food being disbursed. 


In addition to providing food, education is also an essential service and K-12 schools in Florida will continue to facilitate distance learning.  Walton County Schools will continue to provide virtual education for your children through the At-Home Learning Calendars provided on your school’s website.    Although our school campuses will minimize interactions to help slow the spread of COVID-19, our school leaders, teachers, and other support staff are essential workers and are able to be a resource for you and your family.  Please continue to call or submit online questions to your child’s school if you need information about food, technology help, computer devices, paper portfolios, and more.  We are here to help and continuing your child’s education is important to us!
