Reopening Plan

Dear Pinellas County Schools Families,

As you know, PCS is preparing for the upcoming school year and recently shared the comprehensive reopening plan. The School Board has voted for the new school to begin on August 24th and end on June 9, 2021.  Please note, this will not affect Thanksgiving, Winter or Spring Break.

Delaying the start of school will allow our staff to create a master schedule based on the learning options selected by our families. It will also give our instructional staff time to receive training and prepare lesson plans based on the type of instruction they will be providing.

Thank you for your continued patience, flexibility and support during this unprecedented time.


Michael A. Grego, Ed.D.
Superintendent, Pinellas County Schools
