Hello Middle School Families,

The first semester is flying by! We have hosted two fun Ninja Cafe events and another one will be held on November 16th. Our team encourages all of our middle school ninjas to join us here on campus for some fun and learning. We also want to remind everyone about the virtual Live Lessons that our teachers offer in all subject areas monthly. These lessons are recorded, so if your student is looking for extra help in a certain subject area, please have them visit their teacher's live lesson room and click on the Media Gallery.

Florida Required Instruction

The State Board of Education works with Florida school districts to develop and monitor plans to provide required instruction through section 1003.42 (2)(n), Florida Statutes. More information about the topics included, as well as Pasco County Schools' plan for implementation, please visit our district's website. A table listing topics, as well as grade levels required to have each topic presented, is attached below.

These topics are embedded into some subjects and courses, and others will be presented through homeroom announcements, special activities, and standalone modules.

Attendance Matters

Attendance Matters

In Pasco eSchool's secondary program attendance in class is demonstrated by submitting work within a 7-day period. Attendance is entered into our student tracking system, myStudent, every Thursday and parents will receive an automated call if a student has not completed at least one assignment in each class.

The goal of these calls is to share this information with parents so they can help students get back on track.

For students who have longer periods of time without work submissions, parents can expect our team to reach out through phone calls and emails, schedule parent conferences, require students to attend virtual extended school day, require students to work on our school's campus, and other attendance interventions.

Our goal is to work with families to ensure that all students are successful learners.

Below is a link to the excused absence form for students who may need an absence excused.
