Extended School Closures For COVID-19 Pandemic
A Message From Osceola School District Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop and spread throughout the country,
Update: March 30, 2020 as of 6:15 p.m. The State advised all school districts to extend the school closures through May 1, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we certainly miss our students, their safety, and the health of our community, remains of critical importance. All events through May 1 have been cancelled at this time, but there are no changes to graduation as of yet. Our digital learning plans are now being enacted, and we will continue to support our students, families, and teachers on this new learning journey.
School closures are now in effect for all K-12 schools, the district’s VPK and Extended Learning Programs, Osceola Technical College, and the Adult Learning Center Osceola.  That date will be reevaluated every two weeks to determine its feasibility as the pandemic progresses.  At this point, we await clarification from the state regarding student make-up day requirements, any waived days from our regular calendars, and any employee-related decisions required pursuant to this direction.  All statewide assessments have been cancelled this school year. Information regarding graduation requirements, graduation ceremonies, and other end-of-year activities will be forthcoming as the situation progresses. For now, all mass gatherings of 10 or more individuals are canceled on our campuses until May 1, 2020.
To ensure our children will not go hungry while school is not in session, our School Nutrition Services Department will provide pack-and-go free meals for students at 12 designated sites, which can be found on the school district’s website, from March 23 – April 15, between the hours of 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. Students will need to be with their parents or guardians who come to pick up the meal items, and we will utilize a drive-in procedure through our bus loops to minimize person-to-person contact.

FREE Breakfast and Lunch Pick-Up

Meals will be available for pickup between 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at each location.  Families can go to school/site nearest them to pick up food even if they do not attend that school. Families will drive up in the bus loops, and they will be handed meals through the vehicle window. Students must accompany the parent/adult when they are picking up the meals, and meals can be provided to children not of school age if they are in the group picking up the food.

Las comidas estarán disponibles para ser recogidas entre las 9:30 a.m. y las 11:00 a.m. en cada ubicación. Las familias pueden ir a la escuela / lugar más cercano para recoger comida, incluso si no asisten a esa escuela. Las familias conducirán en las paradas de autobús y se les entregará las comidas a través de la ventana del vehículo. Los estudiantes deben acompañar al padre / adulto cuando recojan las comidas, y las comidas se pueden proporcionar a niños que no están en edad escolar   están en el grupo recogiendo la comida.

New Dimensions High School Named 2016-2017 Schools of Excellence By Florida’s State Board of Education for 2016-2017

State Board of Education designates a school as a School of Excellence if the school’s percentage of possible points earned in its school grade calculation is in the 80th percentile or higher for schools comprised of the same grade groupings (elementary, middle, high, and combination) for at least two of the last three school years if the school meets the qualifying criteria. To be eligible, schools also had to receive a grade of A or B in each of the most recent three school years.  Each of the schools will retain the designation for up to three years.
