2021 - 2022 PE Waiver


Florida state legislation requires students in grades 6-8 to take at least one semester of physical education - PE each year. The legislation allows parents to waive the requirement if the student meets at least one of the following:

- The student is enrolled or required to enroll in a remedial course (waiver not required).
- The parent requests that the student enrolls in another elective course offered by the school at that grade level.
- The student is participating in equivalent physical activities outside of the school day.

***A student may still be assigned to PE unless there are documented health conditions & the waiver is completed.

Free and Reduced Meal Application

The Free and Reduced Meal Application is now available at www.PascoSchoolMeals.com.

Currently, all 2021-2022 students will receive free breakfast and lunch regardless of eligibility. However, we strongly encourage you to complete the new free and reduced meal application, as schools receive a portion of their funding based on the percentage of students who qualify.

To review the eligibility guidelines and complete an application, please visit www.pascoschoolmeals.com.
