    Congratulations to our School Psychologist, Erica McKnight, who has been named as Pinellas County Schools’ Student Services Employee of the Year! Mrs. McKnight is a valuable member not only of our PCS Student Services Team, but also our Curlew Creek Student Services Team. She will be recognized at Tuesday’s School Board Meeting.

    We are very happy to now have most of our scholarss back at school in the traditional learning environment! We had a great first week of the 3rd quarter. We have safety protocols in place and you can help by having frequent conversations with your students about the importance of wearing a mask to cover their nose and mouth, remaining distanced from others, not touching others, and facing front only when seated in the cafeteria. Also, if you have not yet returned your school issued laptop, please send it with your child and remember to include the charging cord.

    We will continue to accept Learning Option changes through the third quarter. Visit our school website at and follow the link to request your change.

    Please visit Mrs. James’ Counselor Corner on our school website to keep updated with school counselor information at .

    As we work through this unprecedented school year, words cannot describe how much I value and appreciate your support. I look forward to our continued partnership and working with you in 2021!
