Virtual School Hours: 9:00 - 11:30 am & 1:00 - 3:30 pm
We have arranged times for students to be able to come to school to pick up belongings they left in the classroom. Parents should create a Name Tag with their child’s name and teacher name to put in their front passenger windshield. Cars will pull up in the bus circle and our staff will direct you to a station. Families should remain in the car. Staff will bring out your child’s belongings. When they do, please open your trunk and a staff member will place a bag with student belongings in the trunk. If your child earned any certificates since Spring Break, these will be given to your child during this time.
This is also a time when your child can return things to school, such as library books. At one of the stations in the bus circle, there will be a staff member with a bin for you to place these items in. Students in all grades who have a district computer should keep the computer over the summer. The exception is if your family is moving out of Pinellas County, you should plan to return your computer at this time.
If you have students in multiple grade levels, you may pick up the belongings for all your students at one time.
Here are the scheduled times to pick up belongings:
Tuesday, May 26 12:30 – 3:30 Pre-K and Kindergarten
Wednesday, May 27 8:30 – 11:30 1st grade and 2nd grade
Wednesday, May 27 12:30 – 3:30 3rd grade and 4th grade

Pinellas County Schools has designed a highly engaging, theme-based virtual summer bridge program for all students this coming summer. Students will have the opportunity to receive instruction on standards that have been deemed essential in preparation for the upcoming school year. They will be engaged in virtual field trips, high-interest text each week that is connected to the weekly theme, as well as small group instruction for students requiring additional support. We will have teachers from Cross Bayou Elementary supporting our students in grades K-4, so they will have a familiar face this summer.
There will be opportunity for enrichment, as well as remediation based on the individual need of the student.
The dates and times for students for virtual summer bridge will be June 8 – July 16, Monday – Thursday for 2 hours each day. Your child’s time will vary based on small group instruction times but should be between the hours of 8:00 am – 1:00 pm. More information for times will be provided from your child’s summer bridge teacher when we know which students will be participating.
Current 5th grade students are eligible to participate in the summer bridge program at the Middle School they will be attending. Use the summer bridge link on our website to register.
At this time there is no summer VPK scheduled because it cannot be conducted virtually. If additional information about summer VPK becomes available, I will send information to families via a phone message.
