Senior Grad Nite at Busch Gardens!



May 7th from 7:00pm-Midnight


Due to the COVID pandemic, we have not been able to provide to you all of the traditional senior activities we have had in the past, and we wanted to let you know that 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 High School Senior Grad Nite in Busch Gardens on May 7th from 7 pm to midnight. Our seniors will have access to take on top-rated coasters during an exclusive, after-hours private event for seniors 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 $90.00, and it includes your entrance to the park, a meal voucher and transportation. Tickets will be on sale through April 23, 2021, and there will be no refunds. 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 school rules and policies. You must take the school transportation to the event. No private cars will be allowed.


We will begin taking money/reservations on Wednesday, March 31st.  Students can pay with cash or check (payable to St. Pete HS) in the main office (101).  Upon paying students will receive a permission slip which will need to be signed and returned.
