State Testing Impacts due to last years test being cancelled
This week begins state testing for the fall of 2020. The FSA and EOC tests were canceled last May, but passing scores for the FSA ELA and Algebra 1 EOC are still graduation requirements. Therefore, all juniors will be taking the FSA ELA Retake in the fall. Last year’s Algebra 1 students have two options: take the Algebra 1 EOC in the Fall or defer taking the test until May and take the Geometry EOC. Passing either test will meet the Algebra 1 graduation requirement for those students.
Student Driver and Parking lot Reminders
FREE Breakfast & Lunch for ALL Students 9/14 through 12/31!
- Beginning Monday, September 14, students who are attending brick and mortar will receive free meals from the cafeteria regardless of their current status. Students will still need to provide their student ID number at the point of sale. Each student is eligible for one free breakfast and lunch daily. Any items selected outside of the offered meal(s) will be charged a la carte pricing.
- We encourage families to continue to fill out Free and Reduced Meal Applications if their financial situation changes because when this waiver ends the status (free, reduced, paid ) will resume. In addition, there are other benefits that students receive from their status.
- Monday, September 14 – Thursday, September 17 - curbside distribution will remain daily at your designated site’s time, but meals will now be free.
- On Friday, September 18, we will serve a week’s worth of meals (breakfast and lunch) curbside to mySchoolonline students, quarantined students, and children in the community 18 years and under (includes Pasco e-School students). This will be at all school sites per state guidance and we will keep the same times already established for curbside feeding. After this point, curbside meal distribution will be once a week on Fridays. FNS selected Fridays because it is in line with produce deliveries and will ensure students are provided food soon after delivery.
