Message from the CPS Director
Greetings South Woods Families,
As we begin a new school year, we remain steadfast in our commitment to serving students and empowering families for future success. Our Community Partnership School team will continue to offer free services related to wellness, counseling, student and parent supports, nutrition, social services and more.
The start of a new school year brings excitement and new opportunities for both students and parents. South Woods Elementary School, A UCF-Certified Community Partnership School, is providing additional resources through multiple back-to-school events, as well as expanded access to wellness services with our telehealth kiosk, located on campus. Learn more about our partnership and services offered through Flagler Health+ in the link below.
Together, we welcome you back to the 2022-2023 school year, with our commitment to continue serving children, families and our community. If you have any questions, please contact any of our Community Partnership School team members included in our Who’s Who document.
We would like to remind our families of our onsite telehealth urgent care visits to students and families. Kesha Covil, our Community Wellness Coordinator will also be available to help students and families navigate any barriers that are impeding their access to care.
If you or your student is in need of any medical, dental, vision or wellness support please complete the following referral link that is sent directly to Kesha, who will contact you immediately.
Please view the video below about our newest resource for comprehensive wellness supports and contact us now to be seen!

South Woods Elementary, A Community Partnership School
Community Partnership Schools provide support, services and solutions to help alleviate burdens. As more weight is lifted, students find the balance to focus on learning so they can realize their full potential. Community Partnership Schools bring together high-quality academics, health care, counseling, support, mentoring and more to a place where students and their families are empowered: in their own school.
Community Partnership Schools focus on four pillars:
Expanded learning: Academic support and enrichment take place before and after school, during weekends and in the summer to augment traditional learning during the school day.
Student supports: A range of health and social services are accessible on the school campus.
Family & community engagement: Families and the community are partners in children’s education, and the school becomes a neighborhood center offering enrichment opportunities for both students and adults.
Collaborative leadership: A culture of shared governance and collective decision-making advances a unified vision to identify needs and provide appropriate resources and solutions in the school and community.
