CHS Learning Options for 2020-21 School Year:
Please make sure to finalize your choice using the Student Reservation System before the deadline on Monday, July 27th at 5:00pm. Health and safety are paramount, and please know that we are continuing to develop strong processes and systems to ensure we are doing all we can to protect your child while they are on our campus. For example, all will wear masks, and we will utilize social distancing protocols. We have intensified our sanitizing procedures, and we have worked to reduce capacity in the classroom and common areas. Our bell schedule below shows our plan to have lunch at the end of the day, with nutritional breaks throughout the day with grab and go items.
Families have three learning options to choose from:
1. The Traditional Option, where students have face-to-face instruction at their assigned schools.
2. MyPCS Online, where students have virtual instruction, stay enrolled at their assigned schools and keep their seats in District Application Programs
3. Pinellas Virtual School, where students have self-paced virtual instruction, but they will not be enrolled in their assigned schools or keep their seats in District Application Programs.
Please visit https://www.pcsb.org/reopening to learn more about the reopening for the 2020-21 school year and select a Learning Option for your student. Don't forget decisions are due July 27 by 5:00 p.m. Families who don't decide by the deadline will be automatically enrolled in traditional, face-to-face learning.
Whatever choice you make, remember the first day of school is Monday, August 24th.
Athletic Paperwork Update:
Please pick up or drop off 2020-21 athletic paperwork in the front office for Mrs. Biddle.

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!
