Welcome to Tropic Isles Elementary

Hello to all Star Harbor Families! The Star Harbor before and after-school program is closed for the remainder of this school year. We are still waiting to hear word from the school district regarding our Summer Camp program. 


In the meantime, if you have a balance in your account and would like us to issue a refund, please email the Director, Lisa Lombardo, at or call her at 941-315-8366. If you would like for your balance to roll over to future usage, you do not need to do anything. 


All families who have a fifth grader will automatically receive a refund. All refund requests will be handled through this contact information and not through the school phone number. In order to expedite your refund, again, contact Lisa Lombardo at or call her at 941-315-8366.


Dear Parents,

I would like to take this time to thank all of you for all of your hard work during these last 9 weeks of distance learning.  We are entering our last week.  Our teachers and staff have really worked extremely hard to continue the learning for all of our students.  I applaud all of our students for their involvement and engagement during the last 9 weeks.  We certainly made history with distance learning.

This week and next week, our teachers will be having virtual awards ceremonies.  Please check out the schedule on the left side of this page under QUICK Links.

Starting June 1st, we will be distributing student materials and belongings between 8:30-12:00.  Parents and students will come through our car rider line and we will have stations set up with your child’s belongings.   We ask that parents and children stay in their car.  We are following CDC guidelines to keep everyone safe.  Please be patient with us while we are distributing belongings.  The schedule is below:

June 1st            Pre K, Kindergarten, 1st Grade

June 2nd           2nd and 3rd Grade

June 3rd            4th and 5th Grade

June 4th            Make-up Day K-5

We are excited to have a 5th Grade Promotion Parade on June 2nd from 6:00-8:30 PM.  We will celebrate our 5th graders during these times.  5th Grade parents, please visit your child’s google classroom with information describing this event.

Tropic Isles Elementary will be a summer feeding site.  The program starts on June 1st and will be open from 10:00AM-12:00PM Monday-Friday.  We will be serving our meals on our bus ramp off Orange Groove Boulevard. 

Parents, please make sure that you are signed up on our FOCUS Portal and School Messenger and are receiving messages from the district and the school.  If you are not, please contact the school so we can update our system with your correct information.

This has been my 15th year as a Principal in Lee County and my 1st at Tropic Isles.  The end of year is always a memorable time, and what a memory this will be for all of us.   I have truly been honored to serve as Principal at Tropic Isles Elementary.   I look forward to what the future holds for our school and community.  We are already preparing and planning for the 2020-2021 school year.  Let me tell you, I can’t wait for the moment when I can see all our students, families and staff walk through our front gates.

Thank you students and parents for all of your support of Tropic Isles Elementary.  Please be on the lookout for communication from our school and school district.  Have a safe and healthy summer. 


Robert Mazzoli, Principal
