Osceola’s mission is to create Life-Long Learners.
Parent Drop-off begins at 8am*
1st bell (students enter classroom)@8:25am Tardy bell @ 8:30am *early care is available through our Extended Day Program (fee based program)
Effective Tuesday, January 6, 2015: The double doors by the parent drop off circle will close when the first bell rings at 8:25 AM. Students arriving after this time will need to be walked into the school building by an adult. Students arriving after the second bell at 8:30 AM will also need to be signed in by an adult. The expectation is that students are in their seats in their classroom, ready to learn, each morning by 8:30 AM. Thank you for your help!
