All Osceola district public schools will be closed on Friday, September 8, and on Monday, September 11, due to Hurricane Irma. All school activities, events, and programs scheduled for those days are canceled. All schools will be in session tomorrow (Thursday, September 7) as normal, and current plans are for schools to reopen on Tuesday, September 12.
A number of Osceola schools are needed as early as Friday as shelters for residents in Osceola County, as well as for those Floridians evacuating from the south and coastal counties. Forecasters are expecting deteriorating weather conditions heading into Monday to include sustained heavy winds and possible substantial rainfall for Osceola County.
Parents and community residents are encouraged to monitor the district’s website at www.osceolaschools.net for any further school district updates and for a list of rescheduled events. Individuals can also call the district’s Community Relations Office at 407-870-4007 for the latest school district information.
