Welcome to Ocala Springs Elementary School!
This school year is advancing nicely. Please keep in mind the many ways that you as a parent/guardian can help your student and our teachers. Please remember to have your student to school on time, our school day begins at 7:45 am, and breakfast begins at 7:20. Feel free to contact to contact your child's teacher if you have a question or concern via their email or school phone. We encourage you to be involved in your students homework activities, reading with your child each evening, and talking with them about making good choices at school. We appreciate your involvement, and are looking forward to watching your child grow throughout the upcoming year.
Ocala Springs Elementary is a school where all children can learn. All children are given the opportunity to explore and develop to their fullest potential. Each child's environment is structured to develop a sense of self-worth and to motivate children to be lifelong learners.
Beyond academic excellence, our success is founded upon treating each child as a unique and special person. With this foundation, our ultimate success is measured by the number of students who learn to accept and understand the differences within each person.
Ocala Springs Elementary School is concerned about safety. Please don't be offended if we ask you to park in a different location, walk inside the crosswalk, or show a picture ID when picking up a child. We all have to show our children we are concerned about safety issues.
Additionally, parents are not allowed to walk their children to class in the morning or pick them up at the classroom at the end of the school day. Car riders are to be picked up at the front of the school, by the main office. Parents must remain in the car line with a school-issued car dashboard sign visible through their front windshield. These cards are available at the front desk.
***Notice to Parents and Guardians*** There are safety procedures regarding visitor sign-in. A computer system in the front office, Vsoft, requires visitors to have their driver's license or government ID scanned and a name badge issued before entering the campus. Please keep this information in mind when visiting and please allow for the extra time needed when signing in. Also, remember that visitors are required to sign out through this system, since it keeps track of each visitor's time spent on campus. Thank you for your patience!
