Grad Nite

Good afternoon Senior Families

Due to the COVID pandemic, we have not been able to provide all of the traditional senior activities we have had in the past, and I wanted to let you know the high school principals and our district have been working diligently behind the scenes with Busch Gardens to provide our seniors with a special private after-hours event that follows our school board policies, and is in line with current CDC guidelines such as social distancing, wearing masks with temperature screenings and hand sanitizer stations. 

As a result, we are excited to announce that we will have a Pinellas County Schools Grad Nite for seniors at Busch Gardens on May 7th from 7 pm to midnight. Our seniors will have access to top-rated coasters during an exclusive, after-hours private event in an electrifying outdoor environment, including music, live entertainment and much more! From the exhilarating launches of Tigris and Cheetah Hunt to the dramatic drops of Falcon’s Fury and SheiKra, this physically distant party packs endless thrills for our graduates. This spacious, open-air event offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Pinellas County Seniors to celebrate safely with enhanced health and safety measures throughout the park. 

The Grad Nite fee is $89.00, and it includes your entrance to the park, a meal voucher and transportation. Tickets will be on sale beginning this coming Monday - April 5 through April 23, 2021 at 2:00 PM, and there will be no refunds. You may use either or you may be pay by check or cash with Ms. Shields - our senior class sponsor. You will be provided with a student guide explaining all the details, and you will be expected to follow the outlined COVID measures, along with all Pinellas County School's rules and policies. 

Attached is the Student Guide and Permission Slip for the event. You can find additional information on our website. Again, we are excited about this opportunity, and we hope you can attend!

If you have any questions, reach out to Ms. Shields via email. Thanks so much and have a great day!
