The Osceola School District is committed to engaging all stakeholders in the education of our children. Only when we build strong relationships with our staff, students, families and community members can we best meet the needs of each and every student.
You're probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over. Some kids feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school because of all the new things: new teachers, new friends, and maybe even a new school. Luckily, these "new" worries only stick around for a little while. Let's find out more about going back to school!
Ms. Taylor Kuwik, First Grade Teacher at St. Cloud Elementary, has been named as Osceola County’s 2023 Teacher of the Year.
I would like to welcome all of you to another great school year at Partin Settlement Elementary School. This year we will be working to promote a growth mindset with both our students and staff. The growth mindset, in a nutshell, is learning is increased by believing that effort and learning from your mistakes increases learning more than IQ or innate talent. I believe all students are capable learners and that they will all show growth.
We are proud to be Pioneers who promote the Pioneer 3: To be Respectful, Responsible, Positive Problem Solvers.
Karen "Casey" Corbett, Principal
Attention Parents and Students:
PSE is a peanut-free school.
PSE Arrival & Dismissal ProceduresFOR THE SAFETY OF ALL STUDENTSWE NEED YOUR HELP
Car riders must be dropped off and picked up in the car rider area. The car rider location is in the rear of the school and the entrance is located on Partin Settlement Road at Northeast Christian Church. Click here for map. Drop off may begin at 7:50 AM, no earlier, as students will not have supervision prior to that time. Never, ever, leave a student without a staff member present. Please have your student ready to exit the car by the time you arrive at the drop off area. This includes saying your goodbyes and having their backpacks ready. This helps increase how quickly we can get students out of the cars and either to breakfast or class.Dismissal: All vehicles must have a car tag in order to pick up students.Vehicles without car tags will be sent to the front office to register for one before they are allowed to pick up their student(s).Starting April 11th we will be changing the car rider dismissal pick-up
In an effort to get additional cars off of Partin Settlement Rd. during dismissal, we will be changing the pickup areas for car rider. Please refer to the information below and the map attached. Our hope is that this will not only help Partin Settlement Rd. traffic but also increase the speed of the car line. We are trying this now so that we can perfect the process before next year when Partin Settlement Rd. will be under construction.
•Everything will remain the same until you reach the campus gate. At that point there will be two lines. The one on the right will be for parents picking up kindergarten students and the one on the left will be for all other grade levels. It is very important that everyone stays in one line until they reach the gate.
•Once you make the turn at the stop sign the kindergarten parents will load in the area formally used for van pick up (this includes siblings of K students). All others will proceed to the area we are currently using for car rider. Pre-K parents will pick up in the designated area all the way in the front by the Pre-K playground (this includes all siblings of Pre-K students). Remind older students to go to sit with their younger sibling in the correct pick-up area.
•All cars will merge back into one lane after the Pre-K pick up area and then make the right turn off campus at the stop sign.
Students, if you leave from the walker gate you must be walking home. Students may not be picked up in the front parking lot. Parents, if you are picking up in a vehicle, you must pick them up in the car loop located behind the school. Please do not use the front parking lot as a car rider pick up. All walkers/bikers enter/exit from the bike rack area. Students should not arrive at the bike area until 7:50 AM. Any bikes left before that time will remain outside of the locked area for the school day. There is an additional second walker gate that enters/exits from the Lago Buendia subdivision at the back of our school.Walker gates are open from 8:00am to 8:20am.
RAINY DAY PLANS
If it is raining but no lightning present, students will be instructed to follow their rainy day plan. So, if planned, walkers/bikers may still walk/bike home OR you can teach your child to go to the car rider area on rainy days. If lightning is present, all walkers and bike riders will be held in the front foyer until the storm passes and it is safe to release them. It is important your child knows their rainy day plan to minimize confusion. We must be notified in writing of any change in dismissal procedure for your child. Student safety is always our top priority.
CELEBRATIONS AND EVENTS AT PSE
Due to safety and liability issues, younger siblings/children will not be allowed to attend any events during regular school hours. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
