LAND O'LAKES — A new high school and a new elementary school will open in Pasco in August, and it will mean big changes for some students.
The new boundaries for Anclote High and Watergrass Elementary are set, and Pasco school officials have created a four-page brochure that explains the changes.
The brochure, sent home with students to be reviewed over the winter break, features a letter from superintendent Heather Fiorentino, a two-page map of the boundary changes and answers to some anticipated questions.
The Anclote High brochure was sent home with ninth and 10th grade students at Gulf and J.W. Mitchell high schools and all students from Gulf, Paul R. Smith and Seven Springs middle schools.
Students who will be seniors at Gulf and Mitchell high schools in 2009-10 will not be affected by the changes.
When Anclote High opens, it will not have a senior class.
The brochure outlining the boundaries for the new Watergrass Elementary will be given to all students at Wesley Chapel Elementary.
Boundaries for the new schools were set by committees made up of school officials and parents.
