MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR APRIL 4th -13th!
THE SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR WILL BE OPEN IN THE MEDIA CENTER- make sure to check the Media Center page under the “Curriculum” tab to get all the details on the FAIR!
Osceola Middle School, working together as partners with the total community, will prepare students for the future. A professional, compassionate staff will provide a challenging, diversified curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student. Our goal is to provide a safe environment where students are expected to develop the integrity, social and life skills necessary to become productive citizens.
At Osceola, we strive to provide a school environment where differentiated instruction is provided to meet the needs of every student to the best of our ability. We will aim to provide an educational program that is academically challenging; our educational program engages each student by linking curricular content to previous knowledge and experience while remaining exciting enough to promote further exploration of new ideas. We recognize that we cannot reach our goals without the hard work of our Osceola students, parents, and our community. We look forward to our partnership with you.

RAINY DAY DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
Osceola Middle will implement rainy day dismissal procedures on days when we are experiencing a hard rain during the 1:45 PM dismissal. The front car loop along 5th St. will be closed and all traffic will be routed east on Tuscawilla Ave. Cars will turn into the Osceola campus just past the 8th grade patio and will form two lines. Students will stand under shelter and wait for their name to be called on the loud speaker. You may want to text your student as you enter the campus to prepare them to load the car. We will make every effort to notify you via SchoolWay text if we intend to implement our rainy day dismissal procedures.
Off-Campus Car Riders and Walkers – Parents are asked to make rainy day plans with their students in advance. They are encouraged to wait on campus under cover.
