Summer School Plans

Wash Hands

Due to social distancing guidelines still in effect by the CDC and recommendations from the Florida Department of Health, our district will continue eLearning throughout the summer.

We have virtual plans in place for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade who are below level or need additional credits.

Your school and teacher will reach out if your student is in need of summer eLearning.

Additionally, all fee-based programs, including HOST, will be postponed at least through the month of June

Important Update for the Class of 2020

graduations

Student leaders at each of our high schools collaborated with our graduation committee to come up with an alternate graduation plan because of coronavirus concerns. Please view each school’s schedule >>

If the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention do not adjust their current guidelines for the summer months and do not allow public gatherings of more than 50 people, our district will explore options to provide virtual graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020. Please know that the virtual option will be the LAST resort.

We hope this will allow you and your family to make plans. We will make adjustments as we receive more information from the state and the Department of Health.


Update on School Closures - April 18, 2020

The state has directed all school districts in Florida to keep schools closed through the end of the school year due to concerns over the coronavirus.

We will follow this directive and continue eLearning through the end of the school year. You can find our district’s eLearning Contingency Plan here.

Additionally, ALL extracurricular activities will be cancelled during this timeframe including graduations. However, we have worked with select seniors, school-based leaders and district staff to develop multiple options for school graduations. We will communicate that in the coming days.

We will continue to provide a week’s worth of grab and go meals to our students on Wednesdays from 9am until 1pm during this time.

The health and safety of our students, staff, and community members are our top priority.

Our district will continue to provide updates to make certain everyone is apprised of all next steps.


Grab and Go Update

Grab-and-Go

Our district will be implementing new procedures for families picking up weekly meals at our Grab-and-Go sites. If you are picking up food for a student in our district, you must provide their student ID number.

If you are picking up for a child who is not school age, or outside of our district, you will be required to provide their name, as well as birth date. We will be tracking meals using new technology to ensure students have access to nutritious meals during this closure.

Please note, these new measures will take extra time. Please be patient as we put these new procedures into place. To make the process even easier, we suggest writing your student information in large print on a sheet of paper that you can hold up for our staff.

This policy will also be in effect for our Monday snack stops. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.


Action for School Quality Initiative (ASQi) Survey Results

The Action for School Quality Initiative (ASQi) survey is an anonymous district-wide survey completed by school-based educators. Teaching conditions in schools are important for many reasons. Whether it is their relationship to student learning or their strong influence on teacher retention, research continues to affirm that these data matter. The ASQi survey results represent the collective voices of educators that guide improvement opportunities for our schools and the district. Please view the results:  https://hcps.asqinitiative.com/

Census

Hillsborough County Public Schools has teamed up with the U.S. Census Bureau to make sure EVERYONE is counted.

Based on data gathered by the census, $675 billion in U.S. govt. funds is distributed among states and communities. That money is crucial for our schools.

In a few weeks, you’ll be receiving a postcard in the mail. That postcard is your invitation to take the census. Once you receive that invitation, you can respond online, by phone or by email.
