In order to protect the health and safety of employees, staff, and students, all those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19 daily. If you answer YES to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or school district office. All three self-screeners – the Student Self-Screener, the Employee Self-Screener, and the Visitor Self-Screener – are accessible from the district’s COVID-19 protocols page and are posted on each school web page.

Sunshine State Quizzes

Hello Oakstead Families!  We are ready to roll out our Sunshine State Program for the 2021-2022 school year as we already announced the new Sunshine State/Sunshine State Jr. readers. For the 2021-2022 school year, there will be some changes to how we approach this program. With the goal of encouraging all students to read and achieve this year, quizzes will not be unlocked until the beginning of the school year to encourage students to thoroughly read. Our 3rd-5thstudents will be automatically enrolled into the Sunshine State Quizzes canvas course on their myLearning, which they access through their myPascoConnect in August. Students will have 3 chances to score a 70% or higher on each quiz. Teachers will be reading at least 4 of the Sunshine State books as read-alouds in class. To encourage our students to read and pass the quizzes, we will have a tiered timeline.

Students who have read and passed quizzes with a 70% or higher for:

  • 4 books by October 1st will earn an ice cream party during Otter Frenzy!
  • 8 books by Dec 1st will earn a Glow Dance Party in the cafeteria during Otter Frenzy!
  • 12 Books by Feb 1st will earn Pizza Party in the cafeteria!
  • ALL 15 books by April 8th will earn an exclusive Sunshine State event!

We understand that some of these books will be hard reads for our students so we encourage them to read what they can! For our Sunshine State Juniors, we are having teachers read them in class to encourage the love of reading with no quizzes attached. Thank you for all your support because we know at Oakstead, we grow readers!
