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 campus. Access the Visitor Screener or the Student Screener online. Employees should use the Employee Self-Screener.

Foods for student celebrations and rewards often include unhealthy choices such as donuts, candy, cookies, pizza and soda. While there is nothing wrong with an occasional treat, unhealthy foods are often the norm rather than the exception. Student rewards and celebrations often include foods that are low in nutrients and high in fat, added sugars and sodium. Our School Board’s Wellness Policy and Procedures 8510  were recently updated to comply with USDA Local School Wellness Policy requirements and celebration and/or reward food items must now meet USDA Smart Snack Standards and be prepared in a commercial kitchen. We strongly encourage the use of non-food items, however the cafeteria has a variety of Smart Snack compliant products available for purchase. The Alliance for a Healthier Generation Smart Food Planner provides a link to Smart Snack compliant products available through Amazon as well as a calculator to check your food labels for compliance. Pasco County Schools 8510 Student Wellness Policy Procedures 5.2018
