A note from the Office of Strategic Communications on April 20th
In an effort to preserve traditional commencement ceremonies for our students, the district is working with the Tampa Bay Rays regarding dates in June or July to host graduations if CDC guidelines and the Major League Baseball schedule allow. We recognize the importance of in-person celebrations and are working diligently to pursue this option. There are many details still to work out and we will provide updated information as it becomes available.
SCHOOLS CLOSED THROUGH MAY 29, 2020
A note from Dr. Grego on April 18th
Today, Governor DeSantis and the Department of Education extended the closure of all school buildings in the state of Florida for the balance of the school year due to the COVID-19 health crisis. I, as your superintendent, and the Pinellas County School Board, believe this to be the absolute right decision. The safety, health and well-being of our students, families, staff and community are of the utmost importance. This means, that Pinellas County Schools will continue with digital instruction for the rest of the 2019-20 school year. I am proud that during the first three weeks of digital learning nearly 98 percent of our students engaged online. That being said, we must all be committed to continuously improve our supports for our students and families with the ultimate goal of reaching 100 percent participation.
