Pasco Schools Free Summer Meals Program Starts Today

Land O’ Lakes, Florida – (June 13, 2016) – Pasco County Schools once again is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), and local agencies for the 2016 Summer BreakSpot summer meal program.  The program begins today at most schools.  The list of site locations and times is below.

Authorized and funded by Congress and administered in Florida by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Food, Nutrition and Wellness, the Summer Food Service program was established to ensure that low-income children receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.  The program provides meals and snacks at no charge to all children, ages 18 and under, when school is out for the summer.  To implement the program, FDACS contracts annually with school districts and local agencies that sponsor the preparation, delivery, and serving of meals and snacks to children at no charge at approved feeding sites in low-income areas.
          
Last year, the district served 267,384 meals and 23,861 snacks to children at its 83 sites, including six retrofitted school buses that are used as mobile feeding sites. Knowing that not all of the children are able to make it to a summer feeding site, 11,842 meals were delivered to Pasco County children using the buses.

Pasco Schools Will be Open Tuesday

Land O’ Lakes, FL – (June 6, 2016) – Parents have been notified that Pasco County Schools will be open on Tuesday, June 7th. If flood waters or other storm damage hinder anyone’s ability to get their student to school, they are asked to notify their school administration.

Pasco Schools Storm Update

 Land O’ Lakes, FL – (June 6, 2016) – All Pasco County Schools students have been delivered home safely after the district had to call for early dismissal to get

At approximately 9:15 a.m., the district received updated weather information calling for higher sustained wind speeds than predicted up until then.  Based on the forecast 40 to 45 mile-per-hour sustained winds and 55 miles-per-hour gusts at 3 p.m., the superintendent consulted with staff and made the call to dismiss schools early on a tiered basis.  The decision was made so that students and staff all will be off the roads when the storm hits, and because school buses can’t be operated in winds above 40 miles per hour.

“I understand that this decision has been disruptive to many, but I believe that it was the right decision to make in the interest of student and employee safety,” said Superintendent Kurt Browning.  “Our Transportation Department and school staffs are to be commended for adjusting their schedules to make sure students got home safely.” 

At this time, the plan is to open schools for business at their normal times on Tuesday, June 7.  

Superintendent Browning recorded the following message that was emailed to parents explaining the events of the past two days:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co4gSzEGsmY
