Staffing Adjustments and Protecting the Classroom

Hillsborough County Public Schools is undergoing staffing adjustments based on student enrollment at each school. This process occurs every year in districts across the state. Adjustments usually occur at the beginning of October, however, due to COVID, implementing innovative instructional strategies and protecting student grades, we have elected to make scheduling and staffing changes at the end of the 1st Quarter.  This will provide for a natural transition for all students, employees, and families.


Return to Athletics - Update

Return to Athletics

After considerable discussion and input from our health partners at TGH and USF Health, and based on the state’s transition to Phase 3, we will begin opening our athletic competitions to a larger number of spectators. Maximum capacity will be raised to 400 spectators for volleyball contests and 1,500 spectators to football games. All spectators will be required to:

  • Purchase tickets through the online portal in advance at on a first come, first served basis;
  • Sit in groups no larger than 10 and maintain 6 feet of separation between other groups or individuals;
  • Follow CDC guidelines on mitigating the spread of the virus.

As a reminder, schools will continue with online ticketing controls, paperless entry, and cashless concessions and parking.


Students Eat Free Starting September 21, 2020

List of grab and go sites

Beginning Monday, September 21, all children 18 and under will be able to receive FREE breakfast and lunch thanks to USDA government funding!

All brick and mortar students can receive hot, nutritious meals at no cost in our school cafeterias and students who are learning virtually will be able to pick-up their free Grab-and-Go meals at one of 75 school sites. Our 75 Grab-and-Go sites will be open Monday and Wednesday ONLY from 10am – 11am for students and parents to pick up meals.

Parents are able to pick up the meals without their child being present. However, we will once again be utilizing our meal tracker app so you must know your child’s student ID number or date of birth.

This is a limited time opportunity through December 2020 or until government funding runs out.

School Reopening Plan for the 2020-21 school year

district reopening plan

On Thursday during the School Board Workshop, Superintendent Addison Davis presented his detailed School Reopening Plan for the 2020-21 school year.

This plan evolved after extensive discussions with our health partners at Tampa General Hospital and USF Health. It is a fluid plan that we will continue to modify as the need arises.

The plan includes information about what returning to school will look like, an extensive look at each of our three learning options, and what steps will happen if there is a positive COVID-19 case in one of our schools.

You can view the School Reopening Plan here.
