Rainy Day Dismissal Procedures:

Osceola Middle will implement rainy day dismissal procedures on days when we are experiencing a hard rain during the 1:45 PM dismissal. The front car loop along 5th St. will be closed and all traffic will be routed east on Tuscawilla Ave.. Cars will turn into the Osceola campus just past the 8th grade patio and will form two lines. Students will stand under shelter and wait for their name to be called on the loud speaker. You may want to text your student as you enter the campus to prepare them to load the car. We will make every effort to notify you via SchoolWay text if we intend to implement our rainy day dismissal procedures.

Off-Campus Car Riders and Walkers – Parents are asked to make rainy day plans with their students in advance. They are encouraged to wait on campus under cover.
