Hurricane Ian is expected to have significant impact on Pasco County and the Tampa Bay area for several days this week. As a result, all Pasco County Schools and all district offices will be closed the rest of the week – Tuesday, September 27, through Friday, September 30. We will continue to provide updates on our website; via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; and through School Messenger. Visit our weather page for more information.

Hello Pirates, this is your Principal, Ms. Gilbert, at Pasco Middle School with some important information for next week.

As a reminder, our state and our community are experiencing a surge of COVID-19 cases. The District School Board of Pasco County is no different. There has been a significant increase in the number of cases based on those that are being tested. District staff has been working over the past weeks on revised protocols and precautions in an effort to keep our students and employees as safe and healthy as possible. Please refer to the updated information in the Pirate Press, which is also available on our school and district websites.

The Pirate Press Parent Newsletter is posted on our school website and social media sites for this week and contains important information. The information with the days below is a highlight of events for the upcoming week. Please make sure you review the Pirate Press Parent Newsletter every week.
