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.

Getting Involved

 Please make sure to visit our Parent’s Care Facebook page to to build relationships with Parents and Families of our Cotee River Scholars. Let’s bridge the gap and make connections!

Pancake and Parent Practices: 

We will discuss many topics that align with the book “1-2-3 Magic”: Discipline for Calm, Effective, and Happy Parenting!


PTAThe PTA is compromised of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement at Cotee River Elementary. The CRES PTA prides itself on being a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and the community, and a strong advocate for public education.



SACSchool Advisory Council (SAC) members participate in identifying the needs of the school and developing plans for improvement. The SAC is composed of the principal, select staff members, parents, business and community representatives. All parents, even if not elected to sit on the SAC, are encouraged to communicate with their SAC representatives so all parent suggestions and concerns are addressed.


SchoolThe CRES volunteer program (18+) is an integral part of our total instructional program. Volunteers assist in many activities such as: assisting in the front office, assisting in the media center, classroom projects, field day, field trips, lunchroom duties, special events, and much, much more.
