    IMPORTANT - New students in kindergarten who enroll in Pinellas County Schools will be assigned to a zoned school. All other new students will be assigned to their zoned school on a space-available basis.  

     

    STEP 1: Find Your Zoned School

    Parents will first need to find their child’s zoned school by using the School Zone Locator or calling the school at 727-893-2187.

     

    STEP 2: Reserve a Seat

    To reserve a seat at a zoned school, use the online Student Reservation System (SRS) located on the district website, www.pcsb.org. You can use any computer, including a school computer, to reserve a seat. To use the Student Reservation System, you will need a PCS Portal User ID and password. To get a new PCS Portal User ID and password, visit any school. Make sure to bring a valid ID (Driver's License, State ID card, Passport/Visa, Military ID or Green Card). If you already have a User ID and password for another child, you do not have to obtain new ones.

     

    STEP 3: Register

    START WITH HELLO WEEK 2020

     

    During the week of September 21-25, we will be participating again in the “Start with Hello” Sandy Hook Promise initiative. The initiative encourages students to take small but powerful actions to promote connection and inclusion.

During the week students will participate in school and class wide activities focusing on the “Start with Hello” initiative, a spirit week beginning on September 21, 2020.

    • Students will receive name tags. Please place them our shirts only, so that we can say the others name when we start with hello. Make sure it is neat and large enough to read.

     

     

    Tuesday, September 22: Say hello with a poem, song or cheer! (spirit socks)

    • Encourage your students to find quotes or to create a song, poem or cheer that encourages kindness, you can’t have a community without the word unity!

    • Students will draw a picture, letter or start with hello prompt that we will deliver to our local nursing homes and other community members that have been isolated for COVID related safety reasons.
