Important Back to School Updates
Open House 2019The Sanibel School Open Houses will be held on Thursday August 8th.  There are three open houses scheduled according to grade levels.  Please check the flyer below for your student's meeting time and location.  See you soon!

Open House Schedule

We have a few updates on what is happening at the Sanibel School.  Teachers officially reported back to school today (but unofficially they’ve been in and working all summer).  The campus looks terrific and we are ready for your students to return!  Many of you have called about elementary classroom assignments.  The good news is that enrollment has significantly increased and even as of Friday we are increasing teacher counts as well as admitting students currently on waivers.  But this means that we are still in the middle of assigning students to teachers, and we expect to continue scheduling students for a few days.  So we will be posting classroom assignments in the cafetorium during our Open House on Thursday.  If for some reason you are unable to attend the Open House, please call FRIDAY for your student’s schedule.  Returning MS student schedules were mailed out last Friday, so expect those soon.


FSA test results were received last Friday and have NOT been sorted out yet.  Again, we will be handing the results out at the Open House, and if you are unable to attend, we will send home the results with your student the first week of school.  We have not received FCAT/NGSSS individual results yet.


And now for your summer assignment – registering your parent account in FOCUS and completing the new District on-line forms.  The District is slowing migrating from our legacy student database system which is probably 30 years old to FOCUS.  This year and next, new modules will be slowly rolled over, starting with the  Directory Information Form and Student Emergency Release and Health Form.  These on-line forms replace two paper forms.  If your student was enrolled in a Lee County School last year, you probably already created a FOCUS account to view his/her grades and homework assignments.   If you do not have an account, please set one up then proceed accordingly.  It might take a few days for your account to become active, so the sooner you create your account, the better.


The District has informed us that the on-line forms will be available as of 3 PM today.  The District will send out a message as soon as the forms are available.


All information on how to obtain an email address (if you do not have one), create a FOCUS account and complete the on-line forms is contained on the District website at  To complete your assignment you will need your student’s 8 digit ID number, birthday and the last 4 digits of his/her social security number.

We will have computers set up at the school at the Open Houses this Thursday if you need assistance.  Please try to complete the forms at home if you can as soon as possible.  Thanks and see you soon!
