Celebration K8 School Closure
Celebration K-8 School To Close For Remainder Of This Week
All students and teachers will move to digital learning August 25-27, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted multiple students, teachers, and staff members at Celebration K-8 during this past week. Out of an abundance of caution, the Osceola School District has decided to move all students and teachers at Celebration K-8 to digital learning through TEAMS starting Wednesday, August 25, through Friday, August 27. Students and staff will return for face-to-face learning on Monday, August 30. Students and staff who have been identified as having possible direct contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 are being notified directly. The school day will continue as scheduled today with regular car and bus dismissal this afternoon.
If students have access to a personal computer or laptop at home, they are encouraged to use it during digital learning. Laptops and hot spots will be distributed only to students who need them for digital learning at home. Parents of students who need a device are asked to fill out a borrower's form that can be found on Remind, the school’s website, and its social media, and bring it to the school today up until 7:00 p.m. or tomorrow during the school day. Parents and students needing assistance with connectivity and accessing TEAMS are encouraged to call the district’s Digital Learning Support Hotline at 407-870-4037.
Breakfast and lunch meals will be available Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week for curbside pick-up for parents from 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at the school in a drive-thru setting. Parents must provide a student’s school ID with name and ID number to pick up meals.
Families and employees are reminded of the importance of monitoring closely for COVID symptoms, including runny nose, cough, fever, headache, and tiredness. Please do not send your child to school on Monday if anyone in your family is experiencing these symptoms during this school closure period. Please contact the school’s office to report a potential COVID case, and it is highly recommended that you seek COVID testing to help us stop the spread of COVID in our school community. The Osceola School District appreciates the understanding, support, and patience from the Celebration K-8 community as we take this precautionary measure to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff members.
