    The Osceola School Board is committed to the safety and security of all students, staff, and visitors. The Osceola School District has detailed comprehensive safety and emergency plans for every site, and all schools regularly conduct various drills, such as fire drills, severe weather drills, and intruder drills, to prepare students for an emergency. Additionally, the Osceola School District maintains excellent collaborative relationships with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the Kissimmee Police Department, and the St. Cloud Police Department to address issues related to law enforcement incidents. Through partnerships with these agencies, all Osceola schools have a dedicated School Resource Officer on campus.

    Our students and families are also key partners in school safety. We continue to encourage and expect our students and our community members to say something if they see or hear a specific threat. False and misleading threats and social media posts are disruptive, costly, and distracting, and both the district and law enforcement will respond appropriately when those making false threats are identified.

    We want to assure you that providing safe learning and work environments for all students and staff is paramount to our collective efforts. Thank you for your continued trust and support; by working together, we can and will ensure our Osceola schools are safe places to learn and work.
