  • Lil'Pirate Families:
    We hope this message finds you and your family safe and well.  As you all know, based on the directives from Governor DeSantis our schools are closed until April 15th.  As we stay committed to your child’s education, we are prepared to roll out Nassau County’s Elementary Instructional Plan, which will consist of a blended learning plan of online and paper-based instruction.  

    In the event of an extended closure, we are proactively providing 8 weeks of instruction for your student.  An instructional packet will be mailed to your home the week of March 30th.  Please contact our school immediately if your address has changed.  In addition to the packet, instructional videos and enrichment activities will be available online, which will be loaded onto your child’s Classlink dashboard.  To access Classlink please go to:
     For families who do not have access to technology at home, devices will be available for check-out at Southside Elementary on Thursday, March 26th from 10am-1pm and 4:30pm-6:30pm. Please pre-register online on the district’s website or facebook page. Please continue to monitor our Nassau County School District’s website and Facebook page.  
    In addition, look for daily communication from your child’s teacher starting the week of March 30th in order to check in and take daily attendance.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact our school, and we will do everything we can to assist you and your student.  We appreciate your support as we continue to work together to help your student succeed!  
    We are NASSAU and Gooo..Lil’Pirates!
