District To Observe Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day March 18

The School District of Palm Beach County will observe Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Friday, March 18. The district encourages businesses and organizations throughout Palm Beach County to show students how their classroom lessons apply in the workplace.

Students from kindergarten through 12th grade can participate in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Because March 18 is a teacher work day, students will not need to provide a note to school for an excused absence.

The district is unable to participate in the national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day in April, as that date conflicts with the state-mandated Florida Standards Assessment. Schools are not able to have visitors on campus or have large numbers of students out of school during those state-required tests.
