Quail Hollow Elementary School
Quail Hollow Elementary School opened 40 years ago and is showing its age. For that reason, we are planning a total remodel of the school as proposed in the Penny for Pasco plan. Remodeling Quail Hollow will cost half as much as building a brand new school and when it is complete, it will look new.
No matter how we move forward, we know that this will be disruptive for Quail Hollow families and staff, but we are trying to minimize the impact on you and your children. At this time, our plan is to temporarily house the students in the southern part of the school’s boundary at Wesley Chapel Elementary School. Students who live in the northern section will be transported to Watergrass Elementary School.
We believe that moving students out of the school during remodeling will be less difficult than trying to complete the work with students on campus. We have spoken to other school districts that have tried to work around students in schools that have this same design and it has been very, very difficult.
Quail Hollow staff will be offered opportunities at Wesley Chapel and Watergrass elementary schools, as well as at other schools with vacancies. We will make every effort to accommodate our employees’ needs.
Parents will receive additional information at a community meeting in the next few weeks. It is our desire to turn Quail Hollow into a modern educational facility that will benefit children for many years to come. We will work with parents and staff to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to provide a safe, functional learning environment for students.
