Student Orientation

Join us for student orientation on Friday, August 6, 2021.  We’ve modified orientation to allow for social distancing and to follow CDC recommendations and PCPS guidelines.  We will stagger orientation to allow for morning and evening sessions.

We will limit one adult guest per student at this time. Social distancing will be required in classrooms and in the dining room. Any adult/student who is ill or has COVID symptoms should NOT attend orientation. Please contact the office for an alternate date and time. Our number is (863) 499-2950.
Please attend one of the times listed below based on the enrolling parent’s last name. This will assist with social distancing. Although face coverings are not required, they are encouraged.

  • Car line signs should be on the dashboard of the vehicle. This is critical in keeping the line moving quickly and safely.  If you need a car line sign, please stop by the office with photo identification.

  • Pull up to the staff member calling car numbers on the walkie talkie. Your child/children will exit the dining room and will be loaded into your vehicle.
