Campus Safety

Please abide by the car line procedures and do not pick up/drop off your child on the side street (79th St). This is a safety concern as there is a high rate of traffic on this street during arrival/dismissal times.  Additionally the street has been marked with no parking signs and we want to respect our neighbors in the surrounding community.

*Students are only permitted on campus 30 minutes before (9:00 a.m.) and 30 minutes after (4:30 p.m.) School unless they are involved with a school sanctioned event.  There has been an increase in students arriving extremely early and being picked up late outside school hours.  This poses a safety concern as our Teachers/Staff are not on duty to supervise.  Please assist us in abiding by this request.

  • 7th Grade Immunization Requirement – TDAP AND VZV

    Hello parents of incoming seventh grade students!

    By law, students will not be permitted to attend class on the first day of seventh grade without proof of the required immunizations. Students will need to have received one T-D-A-P booster and two chickenpox vaccines. Pinellas County Schools are required to enforce these immunization requirements and strongly encourage you to get this completed as soon as possible.

    After your child has received these vaccines, please turn in a completed certificate of immunization to the school.

    You can contact your child’s healthcare provider to request these vaccines. If your child does not have a healthcare provider, immunizations are available at no cost at your local Department of Health location, no appointment is needed.

    If you have any questions about these vaccine requirements, you are welcome to call the School Health Services department at 588-6320 for assistance.

    We hope that all students are prepared for seventh grade! Thank you for your attention to this matter.
