Interpreter Requests:

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.
