Field Trips, Extracurricular Activities and Athletics

  • Student Activities

    Field trips will not be scheduled the first quarter of the 2020-2021 school year. Further communication will be provided regarding field trips scheduled for subsequent quarters and will be based on recommendations from the Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    School-based clubs will continue to operate, following all Pinellas County Schools (PCS) protocols and CDC guidelines if held on campus.  At this time, it is recommended to utilize a virtual platform when possible through the first quarter of the school year.

    Extended Learning Program (ELP) will continue to occur.  Parents should contact their individual school for the days, times and manner that ELP will occur.

    As of July 1, high school athletic teams are only approved to participate in outdoor, voluntary workouts in small groups.  A determination on school-year athletics will be made in conjunction with the Florida High School Athletic Association later in the summer. Updates will be posted to this page. As of July 1, no decision on middle school athletics has been finalized. 

    All student competitions held within the district, but not sponsored by PCS, must be approved by the appropriate content specialist. Evidence must be shown that competition organizers are following all recommended CDC and district guidelines before schools/students will be allowed to participate.

    All student competitions held outside the district must be approved by the appropriate content specialist and the area superintendent/chief. Evidence must be shown that competition organizers are following all recommended CDC and district guidelines before schools/students will be allowed to participate.

    Parent Activities

    Back to School Nights and Open Houses will be planned and organized by school-based leadership teams to ensure health and wellness procedures are in place. Plans will be submitted to and approved by the area superintendent/chief before being advertised to the school community.

    No PTA- or Booster-sponsored events will be scheduled for the first quarter of the 2020-2021 school year. No PTA- or Booster-sponsored events for the second through fourth quarters will be approved at this time. Further communication will be provided regarding events scheduled for later in the school year and will be based on recommendations from the Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    PTA Meetings should be held virtually for the first quarter of the 2020-2021 school year. Further communication will be provided regarding PTA meetings scheduled for subsequent quarters and will be based on recommendations from the Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    School Advisory Committees (SAC) meetings will follow the same meeting structure as the Pinellas County School Board meetings.  Currently the School Board meetings are conducted in a virtual format, thus so should the SAC meetings.  SAC meeting structure will continue to align with the School Board meetings throughout the school year. Once meetings are held in person, all CDC and Department of Health guidelines must be followed by SAC members and visitors.
