Junior Yr CLASS Requests

Hello!  I have typed in course requests for junior year 2020-2021.  

Please go now on to myStudent to review these entries and let me know right away if errors.

Be sure to change the year in the dropdown menu at the top right. Then look in the left menu: My Information>Class Requests.  Please email if there are any changes to be made (e.g.: drop__/add__ or a priority change).

**DUAL ENROLLMENT INFO:

  • Dual Enrollment courses will not show as main course requests until EVERY step and sub-step of the DE process is entirely complete.  
  • In the weeks after Spring Break, more DE information is available for students and families:
    • LOLHS Counselors meet with their grade’s students to review the options available. 
    • PHSC is hosting an Open House on their campus. Date/Time TBD
    • LOLHS hosts a Dual Enrollment Info Night at LOLHS. The PHSC Advisor presents information and is available after to answer your questions and guide you through next steps. I’ll send the date out asap. 
    • Ms. Garcia has a Remind  for Dual Enrollment.

Work-based Classes OJT&BCE

Are you interested in On-the-Job Training or being a BCE student? Did you request OJT on your course card?
Your next step is to complete the application process and hiring process. Your course card is NOT an application. See for more information:

Course Request Info

Change your mind on a course?
  • CHANGING your selections for junior year’s course card? That’s great! You SHOULD absolutely review your course selections with your family and with your current teachers for their advice. Do not submit multiple changes — just email your FINAL choices to me at apinsky@pasco.k12.fl.us and I’ll attach the email to your course card.
  • ABSENT during your class presentation?  On Monday 3/2, I finish seeing all students who haven’t yet completed course card – passes are already written for 1st 5th and 6th – please don’t just show up.
  • If you have not been seen by me for course card selection by the end of Monday 3/2, please let me know (via email, Remind, or in person via Ms. Canter, the Student Services secretary and she’ll let me know).

QUESTIONS about your selections?  If you have a question, the easiest and fastest way to get an answer is to email me at apinsky@pasco.k12.fl.us – if it’s something you must discuss or must see me about in person, complete an appointment request https://lolhs.pasco.k12.fl.us/mform/view.php?id=47877  — I do want to let you know that I have 4,000+ course request entries to review individually and enter in — and must meet a deadline, so I will have extremely limited availability.
