Being quarantined can be tough. We understand how difficult it is for our students, and their parents, to have to deal with a quarantine. Especially for our students who have had to be quarantined multiple times.
It can be tough mentally, emotionally and academically.
However, we are trying to make it a little bit easier.
Our district has created a Quarantine Resource Center page on our website with information that can help.
The site is broken into three sections:
- Elementary Resources
- Secondary Resources
- Coping Resources
Reminder! We are serving nutritious meals at no cost to all children 18 and under thanks to USDA government funding.
All brick and mortar students can receive free hot, nutritious meals 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. Again, this is for all children 18 and under.
Our 75 Grab-and-Go sites will be open Monday and Wednesday ONLY from 10am – 11am for students and parents to pick up meals. This opportunity will last through the rest of the school year.
Thanks to the hard work of our students along with teachers, school counselors, support professionals, school-based leaders and parents – Hillsborough Schools reached the highest graduation rate in its history!
The Florida Department of Education released its 2019-2020 graduation rates and Hillsborough County Public Schools stands at 88.8%, climbing nearly 10 percentage points over five years!
Thank you to everyone who had a part in helping our district reach this impressive milestone!
Please take a few minutes to review our Second Semester Roadmap.
The Second Semester Roadmap provides:
- steps our schools have taken to ensure classroom and campus safety.
- strategies to build a strong foundation for all students to help address the opportunity and achievement gaps.
- advice from our medical expert partners at TGH/USF Heath and the Florida Department of Health-Hillsborough regarding best practices to keep our schools clean and healthy.
Hillsborough County Public Schools has created a COVID-19 Data Dashboard to inform parents, students, staff and the community about the spread of coronavirus in our schools.
The dashboard can be found at HillsboroughSchools.org/reopening/dashboard
The COVID-19 Data Dashboard will be updated automatically every 4 hours from 7a.m. – 7p.m. seven days a week. Schools impacted by COVID-19 cases are listed along with the number of employees and students.
We vow to remain transparent as we monitor the number of COVID-19 cases in our schools.
We are excited to announce the return of live performances for many of our performing arts and Co-Curricular programs! Co-Curricular activities are vital to a well-rounded education—but we must only resume performances and events with the highest regard to the health and safety of our students, staff, and community.
As you will see in our Co-Curricular Event Guidelines, we are ready to welcome an audience to some, but not all, of our live performances. Our district worked in conjunction with our partners at TGH and USF Health to create these guidelines, and in the case of our musical and theater programs, we decided it’s best to only allow for virtual performances until January, at the earliest. However, for other programs, it’s been determined that we can return to live audiences, as long as there’s reduced capacity, social distancing, and a mask mandate in place.
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.
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 www.HillsboroughSchools.org/athletics 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.
We are excited to have our students and staff back in-person and virtually for the start of the 2020-21 school year.
If you have questions regarding enrollment, classes, attendance and scheduling, we encourage you to contact your assigned school for answers to your specific questions. You can find a list of schools and contact information here.
Or call one of our district hotlines for support
Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times and organizational changes.
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.
The School District assesses school attendance boundaries based on a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, programmatic changes, enrollment growth, and newly constructed capacity.
