Covid-19 Parent Handbook
Our Covid-19 Parent and Student handbook can be found by clicking the link below. Inside of the parent handbook, families will find information regarding all of the precautions and protocols we will be following to keep our students, staff, and families safe. After reading the parent handbook, if you have questions and/or concerns, please contact the school at (727) 588-3573.
All students must be wearing a mask to enter campus.
If you will be using the car circle for drop-off/pick-up, we ask that parents remain inside of their car as parents/guardians/visitors are not allowed on campus. Please know that families are permitted to enter the Front Office, wearing a face mask if they have questions.
Our afternoon dismissal will be staggered to prevent/reduce clustering or large gatherings. Families/Visitors will not be permitted on campus unless you are visiting the front office for assistance. This is a safety measure to keep everyone safe and we thank you in advance for understanding. If your child is a car rider, we kindly ask that you remain inside of your car. Please put a paper in your windshield using sizable print that has your child’s name, teacher name, and grade level. If your child is a walker or bicycle rider, we ask that you wait patiently at the designated gate exit for your child.
