Final Exams will take place Tue, 5/21, through Thu, 5/23. Please ensure that your student is present every day to participate in their exams.

Howlabration Awards

Our Students of the Week for Semester 2 will also be recognized at the end-of-the-year awards ceremonies for their grade level. Students who were not recognized for Honor Roll for Semester 1 will be recognized at their end of the year awards ceremonies if students have met all Semester 1 Honor Roll requirements by May 1.


We will also recognize students earning Straight A Honor Roll and A/B Honor Roll for Quarter 3. Please note that students enrolled in online classes and/or DE classes may not be eligible for Honor Roll recognition per the Pasco County Schools’ policy: “Dual Enrollment and FLVS courses do not earn quarter grades and are therefore not available for inclusion in the determination of honor roll status for quarter grading periods.”
