Spanish classes won’t be limited to online only at Zephyrhills High in the fall.

Details are being worked out so that the foreign language can be offered on campus in 2013-14, school district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe said.

Principal Andy Frelick explored the online-only option because the number of Zephyrhills High students signing up for the Spanish classes has dwindled.

Frelick said many students already were taking Spanish online, or were opting for French instead, and that had resulted in too few students planning to take Spanish on campus in the coming school year.

Spanish-loving students at the school were unhappy with that development, though, and some circulated a petition last week in an effort to save the classes and the Spanish teachers.

Cobbe said Frelick is discussing staffing allocations with Kevin Shibley, the district’s executive director for administration, so the Spanish classes can be saved.
