Cedar Key High School Principal Kathy Lawrence says she is looking forward to the permanent placement of School Resource Deputy Julie Gironda at the home of the Sharks on Jan. 9.

Gironda has been part of the rotating coverage of CKS since March 2018 with other Levy County Sheriff Office deputies who have been working overtime on their days off from patrol or other assignments. “It will be good for the students build a relationship with a permanent SRD,” Lawrence said.

In the 10 months that have passed since the Florida Senate Bill 7026, also known as The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, was signed and put in place, the Levy County School Board along with the Board of County Commissioners and the LCSO have pooled resources to make sure that every school in the County has had a deputy in place.
