Digital Update of Clinic Card and Contact Information in Focus: Parents can update their clinic card and contact information in Focus. Please visit to learn more. Schools will process updates in the same manner as back-to-school forms.


Pinellas County Schools Community App: (LINK for Families,) (LINK for Staff) - We do strongly encourage all of our staff to use the Pinellas County Schools Application for communication. The app, developed by Focus, helps families access student information on their cellphones and mobile devices. Parents and students can still use the Focus website on desktop computers, but the app is designed to work better with mobile devices. Parents and students receive real-time notifications of grades, attendance, upcoming assignments, and test scores. App users are also able to view school district news and school messages. Links to the student calendar, school menus, school bell times, family engagement opportunities and transportation info are also available. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
