In order to protect the health and safety of employees, staff, and students, all those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19 daily. If you answer YES to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or school district office. All three self-screeners – the Student Self-Screener, the Employee Self-Screener, and the Visitor Self-Screener – are accessible from the district’s COVID-19 protocols page and are posted on each school web page.

Good evening Pirates, this is Mrs. Johnson at Pasco Middle School with some important information for the week ahead.

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 as there is important information.

Parents of 6th graders, please make sure you provide us with documentation of the Tdap immunization prior to August 10th. No 7th grader will be able to start the school year without proof of the Tdap immunization. Please see the Pirate Press for more information. I will send out reminders about the Tdap immunization throughout the summer to those students that we do not have documentation for.

Link to the newsletter:

On Monday, we have our pancake breakfast for all 8th graders and field day from 12-2. All 8th grade events are available for traditional and MySchoolOnline students.

On Tuesday, we have our athletic awards ceremony at 1 PM for all student-athletes. Due to the COVID guidelines, this will be held only for our student-athletes.

Wednesday is the last day of the school year. Our 8th grade promotion ceremony will take place at 12:30 and again, this is only for our 8th grade students. We will do our best to live stream the ceremony as well as record it and put it on our YouTube channel after.

If you are a MySchoolOnline student and borrowed a device, please bring your device during one of the drop off dates and times. You can drop it off in the bus loop on Thursday from 2:30-4 or Friday from 9-11.

Thank you and have a great evening.
