In order to protect the health and safety of employees and students, those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19.  If you answer yes to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or in a district office.  The screeners are accessible on our Covid-19 Screeners page.  Additional information about COVID-19 can be found in the district’s Covid Daily Report , COVID protocols, and Learning From Home Resource guide.

About RES

The original Richey Elementary School opened for the first time in 1958. It remained a neighborhood school until it was chosen as a pilot site for the fundamental school concept in 1978.  In 1994, the Pasco County School Board voted to return Richey Elementary to a neighborhood school, and this status has remained. In 2011 construction began on a new facility, which was completed in February of 2013.

Richey Elementary’s enrollment for the 2020 – 2021 school year is an estimated 630 students PK-5. Richey qualifies as a Title I school which assists us in meeting the needs of our students. Title I helps to support the food and nutrition program funds along with additional instructional support and provides many other resources that benefit the school. Richey Elementary provides services for students PK-5th grade. In addition to our general education programs, Richey also provides services for students with disabilities in order to help ensure that each of our students are successful.

Family and community involvement is strongly promoted through our Title I Family Compact. Information is regularly distributed to promote family involvement in social and academic areas. Monthly Family Nights Out and our School Advisory Council are just a few ways to be involved. Our goal is to create a positive and cohesive environment where all students will be successful.
