In order to protect the health and safety of employees, staff, and students, all those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19 daily. If you answer YES to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or school district office. All three self-screeners – the Student Self-Screener, the Employee Self-Screener, and the Visitor Self-Screener – are accessible from the district’s COVID-19 protocols page and are posted on each school web page.

Next week is a busy week for testing. We are offering Algebra 1 EOC and Geometry EOC session 1 on Monday, May 3 and session 2 on Tuesday, May 4, 2021. Students must take session 1 before they can take session 2. We will also offer Grade 9 and Grade 10 ELA Reading session 1 on Thursday, May 6 and session 2 on Friday, May 7, 2021. Students must take session 1 before they can take session 2.

Due to health and safety concern, we are asking everyone to bring their own headphones or earbuds if possible. We do have a limited number of headphones available, but students typically do not prefer to use these. They do need to plug into the computer for both sessions of the ELA Reading to access audio content. Students will plug in headphones or earbuds and adjust system volume prior to launching the secure browser on each day of testing. A sound check is also built in to the assessment, and students are asked to verify that headphones or earbuds are working prior to beginning the test. Students should not unplug headphones until they finish the test session.

All students have been emailed their time, date and location for testing to their school emails. This can be found in MyPascoConnect, Office365 (orange icon) and Outlook. There will also be a list published in the commons.

If your student scheduled for 11:07 am, your student needs to eat A lunch at 10:35-11:05, then report directly to testing at 11:07 AM.
