Thank you for your continued support and patience during this rapidly changing time; with COVID-19, the situation has been changing day by day, hour by hour. We are committed to providing parents and students with the latest information as it unfolds.
All resources for students and families are available through the ClassLink platform, which the students are familiar with using, on the district website at https://www.osceolaschools.net/ and can be accessed using any digital device (laptop, desktop computer, or tablet).
Accessing The Learning Platform: Parents are asked to know their student’s ID number and password so they can log-in to ClassLink. If you or your student do not know their ID number, please contact your child's school for assistance.
• Digital Device Needs: Should your student need access to a digital device to engage with school work, the Osceola School District has a limited number of laptops and WiFi hotspots that will be made available to loan to students. The district will continue to notify families as more district laptops become available for those who are still in need of a device to participate in digital learning.
• Special Needs Students: If you have a special needs student for whom specific challenges may arise with distance learning, please contact the Exceptional Student Education Department at 407-343-8700.
• Student Grades: Students participating in Digital Learning will earn grades based on their progress in their classes just as if they were taking classes face-to-face. Student grades for assignments completed through digital learning will be entered into Focus. Grades and credits will continue to count toward promotion and/or graduation.
• Student Instructional Hours: We expect students to spend between five and a half to six hours on their assignments each day, Monday through Friday, adhering to the regular school day schedule. Frequent breaks, healthy activity, and healthy snacks are recommended to break up screen time.
