Sean Ear, Assistant Principal

Employment Opportunity

The Citrus County Schools Transportation Department needs Bus Operators.  This is an opportunity to earn income and still be home with your children when school is not in session.  We are looking for safe drivers who care about children.  We provide paid training and testing to receive a commercial driver’s license.  Background screening and pre-employment drug testing fees are paid for by the department.  There are opportunities to drive for the school your child/children attend, and then your school-aged children can ride the bus you are driving to school, in many cases eliminating the need for child care.   If you are interested, please contact the Transportation Business office at 352-726-1931, extension 2370 and/or complete a Substitute Bus Operator application on line at www.citrus.k12.fl.us

Parents –
This is Principal  Michelle McHugh from Forest Ridge Elementary with an important message. To combat COVID-19 and the upcoming flu season,  there may be a need to move students to alternative classrooms to clean certain areas throughout the school day.  Due to lower numbers of students in our brick and mortar schools, we have empty classrooms available.  This is just another step in making sure we are taking every precaution to make sure students and staff stay healthy.  Just a reminder, if the Citrus County Health Department determines your child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you will be contacted by the Citrus County Health Department with further instructions. Thank you.
