ABC Program for Struggling Families

The Pasco County School District supports struggling families in difficult economic times through its Assist, Believe, and Care (ABC) Program. If your family is in need, contact the school to find out more information on how you can get some assistance which can help your child's success in the classroom.

Remember some families might qualify for Free or Reduced Lunches for their children. Information can be found here on the Pasco’s website.

Drop Off & Pick Up Carpools

CarpoolThe PTSA encourages parents to carpool when it comes to dropping off and picking up their children. We have heard your concerns about the traffic issues and are brainstorming possible solutions. In the meantime, organizing carpools would reduce the amount of cars trying to get in and out of the school! It has also been reported that if you pick up your child after 3:10, it is much less congested. Thank you for your cooperation!
