“Enrollment is open at this time for 2019-2020 school year. If you are a new student to St. Johns County School District, VPK, or Kindergarten student you must go to the district web site and enroll your child. There are no paper based registrations. You must go online. Every parent should have an email address and a password to start an account for enrollment. The power School program works on all computers and smartphones. Please click on the Registraton tab at the top of the page to register. We have limited space for VPK and spots are filling fast.
Osceola Wildcats now is the time to start saving your Box Tops to earn a “Pawsome” bracelet and help earn money for our school. Box Tops is one of our best fundraisers for our school and we want to continue that success this year. For every sheet of 25 Box Tops that you turn in you will receive a “Pawsome” bracelet. Please click here for a Box Top sheet.
If you have not already done so we encourage you to enroll your child in the full-day, tuition free opportunity available to your student. The voluntary pre-kindergarten program is available to any child age 4 (before September 1, 2019). Your student’s participation in a VPK program offered by SJCSD offers them early literacy skills achieved through an engaging curriculum that is taught by school district certified teachers. The Full day VPK Program is available at Osceola Elementary, Crookshank Elementary and The Webster School. Spaces are limited and the free full day program will fill up quickly.
For more information or to register please contact the Early Childhood Services Department at 547-8965. Please do not miss this opportunity!

If you are in need of an interpreter for an event at Osceola, we ask you to send a request in writing at least two weeks in advance to the date of your event. We will do our very best to secure an interpreter, but need your help in asking to notify us as far in advance as you can to assure we are able to have an interpreter in place. Please communicate these requests with your child’s teacher and they will pass them on to the office for processing.
We also ask your consideration and let us know ASAP should you need to cancel a prearranged interpreter. This is an additional expense to the SJCSD so we appreciate you helping us to be conscious of these costs.
