It's Time to get kindergarten assignments

Parents of incoming kindergarteners are urged to go to a nearby elementary school and get their close-to-home school assignment before the last day of classes on June 3. School officials are concerned because only 58 percent of the projected 2008-09 kindergarten students have been assigned to a school. Here are the step parents should take:

• Visit any nearby school to get a user ID and password. Bring a state-issued photo ID with you.

• Go online to www.pcsb.org to reserve a seat at your close-to-home school.

• Take the required documents to your child's assigned school (birth certificate or other proof of identity/age, proof of residency, Florida certificate of immunization and a physical examination certificate within the past 12 months).

Call student assignment at (727) 588-6210 or the district call center at (727) 587-2020, or visit www.pcsb.org.

Reclaimed water system pressure low

The city's reclaimed water system has begun to experience low-pressure conditions due to high demand. Customers are reminded of the voluntary water restrictions limiting reclaimed water use. The Water Resources Department has activated its "dry weather protocol" for reclaimed water, which directs the filling of tanks during the day to allow for irrigation in the evening. Reclaimed water customers are asked to turn their automatic sprinkler systems off if there is not adequate pressure for proper operation. For information on restrictions, visit www.stpete.org/water or call 892-5300.
