Hurricane Ian is expected to have significant impact on Pasco County and the Tampa Bay area for several days this week. As a result, all Pasco County Schools and all district offices will be closed the rest of the week – Tuesday, September 27, through Friday, September 30. We will continue to provide updates on our website; via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; and through School Messenger. Visit our weather page for more information.
