Graduation Ceremony Update:
We are excited to celebrate the Class of 2020 and offer a blended commencement ceremony, which combines an extremely personal, in-person experience at Spectrum Field and traditional components through a pre-recorded portion, all of which will be streamed for extended family, friends and the community.
Clearwater High will graduate from 7pm to 9pm on July 8th at Spectrum Field. Please follow the link and visit the 2020 Gradutaion page on the PCSB website for more details and information regarding the ceremony and safety protocols. Please see the documents on the Senior Class page regarding safety protocols, Graduation Groups and additional instructions.
Seniors: At this time Final Transcripts are being centrally processed through the district online. Please visit https://www.pcsb.org/Page/5351 to request transcripts or records.
Senior End of Year Procedures:
Any senior who has not paid their senior fees, returned their athletic uniform or has any financial obligation, must take care of the obligation. Senior fees are $100.00. (cash or checks only). Please email Mrs. Biddle at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Caps and gowns will not be distributed until all obligations have been met.
Summer Bridge (June 22 to July 16) registration is currently open, but, due to COVID-19, CDC guidance and social distancing measures, classes will be held virtually this year. The classes will be made available at all district schools to students needing additional assistance or who would like to take advantage of enrichment courses.
Summer Bridge helps students prepare for the state’s Algebra 1 EOC test, the SAT/ACT, learn skills they need to succeed in high school, and test for credits they need to graduate. Register at reservation.pcsb.org or call the Student Assignment office at 727-588-6210. Questions? Please email or call the school at 727-298-1620.
Summer Bridge will be conducted using Microsoft Teams. Any existing device in your possession that can access Clever and the internet will work. If you already have such a device, visit the PCSB Digital Learning webpage for next steps.
Athletic Paperwork Update:
Mrs. Biddle will post additional paperwork pick-up/drop-off dates and times shortly. Check back soon for more info!
The 2020 Aqua Clara Yearbook staff is finalizing the yearbook for production. The factory hopes to produce something soon. We will share a date for distribution as soon as we have it! Yearbooks can still be purchased for $65.
Again, please see our district website for more information or contact the school via telephone at 727-298-1620 from 8:30am to 3:30pm, Monday to Thursday, with any questions. We will continue to keep our families updated via the website, Facebook and phone calls home. Thank you for your patience and flexibility through this time. We're a strong community and we will continue to support each other as we move forward. Go Tornadoes!
