District to hold parent meetings on temporary closure of 2 schools

Land O' Lakes, Florida -- The Pasco County School District has scheduled two meetings to inform parents about proposals to temporarily close Quail Hollow and Shady Hills elementary schools for renovations beginning in the 2013/2014 school year.

The District says the closures are necessary because Quail Hollow and Shady Hills elementary schools are “Kelley Schools” that were built in the 1970s.  Remodeling with students in the buildings will not work because the open floor plans would expose them to construction noise, dust, and other construction-related disruptions. 

At the meetings, district staff will brief parents on the proposal to temporarily close the two elementary schools and send students to other schools starting next school year, and will address parent questions.

The proposal calls for Quail Hollow Elementary School students in the southern part of the school’s boundary to attend Wesley Chapel Elementary School and students who live in the northern section to attend Watergrass Elementary School. 

The plan for Shady Hills Elementary is to temporarily house the elementary school students at nearby Crews Lake Middle School beginning next school year.  Crews Lake will become a K-8 school, a successful model used in other Florida and national school districts.

Superintendent Kurt Browning, assistant superintendents, and representatives from the district’s communications, school choice, constructions services, and transportation departments will be present to answer parent questions.  Learning community executive directors for each school also will attend and respond to questions.
