Hurricanes! Are you interested in becoming a member of the Citrus High School 2020-2021 Link Crew? Applications are now open and due on Friday, May 15th. Applications can be download here - Link Leader Application 2020-2021.docx.

Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, Citrus High School’s proven high school transition program trains mentors from junior and senior classes to be Link Crew Leaders. As positive role models, Link Crew Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate freshman success.

More and more studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chance for success increases dramatically. Link Crew provides the structure for freshmen to receive support and guidance from juniors and seniors who have been through the challenges that high school poses, and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.

We will be providing you additional details in the coming days.  Please continue to follow our district website,, as well as your child's school website for additional information.  

As Superintendent Himmel has stressed since schools first closed - the safety of our students and staff will remain our top priority.  We know how hard this is for many families, but we will gt through this together as a district and a community.  

It is important to continue to follow all recommendations outlined by the Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  As always, we appreciate your patience and flexibility during this time.

School District Plans for Extended Online Learning

The Citrus County School District has been developing our Instructional Continuity Plan to ensure all students, including those with disabilities, have access to high-quality learning opportunities at home. This plan begins the week of March 30th and is intended to reduce the disruption of learning for our students by providing alternative instruction for an extended period of time. The district has compiled a comprehensive collection of online content and digital resources.

For families who need an electronic device, schools will start the check-out process beginning the week of Monday, March 23rd through Thursday, March 26th. Principals will contact families regarding the check-out timeline at their school. Again, this is only for families who do not have an electronic device at home that they can use. Paper-based options will be available upon request.

Our Instructional Continuity Plan is fluid and will be adapted in response to the needs of our students and community. More information will be provided in the next few days regarding the Instructional Continuity Plan. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we finalize our online learning content.

Believe, Achieve, Succeed


The Citrus County School District would like to remind you of the option to receive text messages from the district, in the event of an emergency. In order for parents/guardians to receive emergency related text messages from the school district, the parent/guardian must have their cell phone number on their student’s Emergency Contact Form on file at the child’s school. This feature is available for the first three cell phone numbers listed on the student’s Emergency Contact Form. Text Messages will only be sent for Emergency notifications. If you currently have your cell phone number on your child’s Emergency Contact Form at your student’s school, and you have not opted in already, you can take advantage of this opportunity by texting ‘YES’ to 67587.
