Proof of address

The Pinellas County School District has tightened its address verification process. Families of new students and incoming sixth- and ninth-graders will need to provide two pieces of documentation. The district will count these items (must be current): a rental agreement or lease, a real estate closing document or tax statement with homestead exemption, or a bill for utilities, such as electricity, water, cable or a land-based phone. Parents who can't provide two documents can fill out an affidavit.

Elementary menus

A variety of fruits and juice are available daily. Students may choose as many as they'd like with their meal.

Monday: Popcorn chicken with biscuit, max sticks with marinara, chef salad, sweet potato fries, romaine or tossed salad.

Tuesday: Rib-b-que sandwich, tortellini Alfredo, chicken Caesar salad, peas, veggie dippers.
