This means that all after-school activities -- including the Senators' scheduled game against Buchholz High School on Friday, October 16, has been postponed. The Senators are 4-1 to begin the football season. Fletcher's volleyball and swimming teams also just claimed Gateway Conference titles a week ago.

In a statement, the District said:

“We have multiple cases impacting the school so we are transitioning all students to online instruction through Duval HomeRoom beginning tomorrow, 10/15.  through Monday, 10/19. There will be no athletics or after school activities, including tonight’s JV football game” 

The school and the District will announce on Monday whether online instruction needs to continue further.

Fletcher High School also sent a letter out to families Wednesday afternoon, obtained by First Coast News, detailing the school's plan for sanitization, health protocols, and return to campus.
