School Incident

This morning at 7:00 a.m. Administration received a report of a possible threat of violence to the students at Anclote High School. Students saw this threat posted on social media and immediately reported it to an adult. The Principal and the School Resource Officer were able to locate the bus on which the student was transported and held the unloading of all buses until the student was safely escorted off the bus. The student was not found to be in possession of any weapon and the situation was turned over to the Pasco Sheriff’s Office. I commend the students for their diligence in reporting the threat of violence and encourage all students to do the same if they witness any posts or comments that may indicate a concern for the safety and well-being of others. As always, we appreciate your support in continuing to monitor social media used by students and working with us to ensure their safety.

2017-18 School Start Times

On Tuesday, April 4 District Staff recommended to the Pasco County School Board new start times for several schools, including Anclote High School. Student hours for 2017-18 will be 8:50-3:05 and will coincide with Paul R. Smith Middle School, similar to when AHS opened. We are still reviewing the specific bell schedule, however, this change will result in Parent Teacher Conferences moving to before school, rather than after. While the newspaper reports the change was as a result of offering the Cambridge Programme next year, this is not the entire situation. While it is definitely an advantage for many families to have Paul R. Smith and Anclote to be on the same schedule, the change was also a result of the district adding a new Bus Garage in Odessa. There was a need from the point of transportation to adjust the start times of several schools from a logistics standpoint. With the implementation of Cambridge at both schools, having a similar start time assists in facilitating the satellite bus service for Cambridge students for both schools, rather than having two runs of satellite stops. Additional information on transportation and bus times will be provided to families at the end of the school year, as soon as it becomes available from the Transportation Department.
