On Monday the Osceola School Board held their regularly scheduled meeting and Superintendent Dr. Green proposed that we implement a mask mandate that aligns with the CDC's guidelines for safely reopening schools and they voted in favor of the resolution 6-0. Act 1002 that banned local mask mandates, was struck down by Judge Fox. As of right now, his order is still law of the land for all of Arkansas—Act 1002 is not currently enforceable. Currently, a District can implement a mask mandate in just about any form that is reasonable and non-discriminatory (entire district, just k-6, just buses, etc.). With that said the Osceola School District will now require all students, staff, and visitors that enter into a school building within the Osceola School District to wear a mask. Students will also be required to wear masks on the bus. Thank you for your understanding and for your patience. Please understand that this is fluid situation and the Judge Fox's decision could be overturned at any moment.
Hello Parents: As we prepare for the upcoming school year, we wanted to keep you informed about what is happening in OSD. This year the Osceola School District will only offer school on site. That means every student that is registered to attend school in the Osceola School District will be expected to come to school. Our custodial staff members are working extremely hard to ensure that your students enter a building that is sanitized and well maintained. Thank you for your commitment to the Osceola School District and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child's educational journey.
