The Florida Department of Education has ordered all schools in Florida to be closed through May 1st due to concerns about coronavirus. More information is available on our Coronavirus Information page.
Each year Hillsborough County Public Schools participates in the Tampa-Hillsborough County Storytelling Festival, sponsored by the Hillsborough County Public Library. HCPS Library Media Services, HOST, and HCPS Arts in Education partner to bring local storytellers into schools for after-school storytelling workshops. Participating students learn first-hand about the Art of storytelling & practice telling. Many of our young storytellers perform in the Storytelling Festival; some are even invited to serve at storytelling ambassadors.
