Dear Seminole Family, Thank you for your persistent support with the Osceola School District. Thank you for partnering with OSD on the implementation of wearing masks on school premises to possibly prevent and slow the spread of the COVID viruses. Thanks are also in order to you for making Osceola School District your school of choice. As you know, we are still in the midst of a pandemic. Cases are steadily rising among our school age students nationwide. I want to assure you that the OSD is working tirelessly to ensure that our scholars are receiving the very best service day in and day out to keep everyone safe. We would also like to commend you on your efforts in keeping students home when there has been a positive case of COVID. In our efforts to maintain a strong partnership, we are asking you to help us manage accurate attendance data for our students by contacting schools when there is a positive case. By doing this, we become aware of why your scholar is absent to ensure that days are labeled and/or coded correctly within the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE) database, as well as provide additional support to eliminate learning loss. To continue to prevent and slow the spread of the COVID viruses within our staff and student body, we are requesting that all parents and/or guardians of on-site learners and all OSD employees notify the district’s designated Point of Contact (POC) immediately regarding the following: -any positive COVID-19 test ,or -exposure to someone who has tested positive In closing, we shall get through this together. We encourage all stakeholders to mask up and continue to be an advocate for what is best for our students and the community we serve. We are a force when we work together. Sincerely, Dr. Toriano Green Superintendent
Due to Covid issues the football games scheduled vs Gosnell this week, September 9 & 10, Jr & Sr High, have been cancelled. Anyone who has already purchased tickets through GoFan will receive a refund through GoFan.
Coach Landry’s PLTW/EAST classes have the capability to design, print, and troubleshoot in Live View remotely from any computer, using Dremel cloud software. This enables the students to create 3D models without having to be in the classroom. This software ensures that the students can be creative and engaged through our technology. The finished 3D printed pencil holder, designed remotely and started printing remotely. Great job to Coach Landry’s PLTW/EAST classes, keep up the great work!

Good morning all stakeholders of the Osceola School District. Please take a brief moment to review the CDC's guidelines on quarantining. We are working extremely hard to adhere to these guidelines and keep all students and staff safe: Quarantine Quarantine if you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless you have been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative. What to do Stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19. Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. If possible, stay away from people you live with, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19. After quarantine Watch for symptoms until 14 days after exposure. If you have symptoms, immediately self-isolate and contact your local public health authority or healthcare provider. You may be able to shorten your quarantine Your local public health authorities make the final decisions about how long quarantine should last, based on local conditions and needs. Follow the recommendations of your local public health department if you need to quarantine. Options they will consider include stopping quarantine After day 10 without testing After day 7 after receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later) Isolation Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from those who are not infected. People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others. At home, anyone sick or infected should separate from others, stay in a specific “sick room” or area, and use a separate bathroom (if available). What to do Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately. Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible. Use a separate bathroom, if possible. Avoid contact with other members of the household and pets. Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils. Wear a mask when around other people if able. Learn more about what to do if you are sick and how to notify your contacts. When You Can be Around Others After You Had or Likely Had COVID-19 Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results. For Anyone Who Has Been Around a Person with COVID-19 Anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 should stay home for 14 days after their last exposure to that person. However, anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and who meets the following criteria does NOT need to stay home. Someone who has been fully vaccinated and shows no symptoms of COVID-19. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative. Or Someone who has COVID-19 illness within the previous 3 months and Has recovered and Remains without COVID-19 symptoms (for example, cough, shortness of breath) I think or know I had COVID-19, and I had symptoms You can be around others after: 10 days since symptoms first appeared and 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving* *Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation Note that these recommendations do not apply to people with severe COVID-19 or with weakened immune systems (immunocompromised). I tested positive for COVID-19 but had no symptoms If you continue to have no symptoms, you can be with others after 10 days have passed since you had a positive viral test for COVID-19. If you develop symptoms after testing positive, follow the guidance above for “I think or know I had COVID-19, and I had symptoms.” If there are any further questions please contact our District Point of Contact Mr. Charles Webster at 870-563-1865.

Congratulations to our outstanding JROTC program led by Sgt. Bryant. Our cadets have been awarded the Resiliency award for their efforts during the shut down. Please see the letter below from the Regional Director complimenting their efforts. Brigadier General Leslie A. Maher Commander, Jeanne M. Holm Center for Officer Accessions and Citizen Development 60 West Maxwell Blvd Maxwell AFB AL 36112 Dear Principal I want to thank your Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) instructors for their diligence and initiative these past 16-months as our nation struggled with a worldwide pandemic. These motivated veterans overcame so many unexpected professional and personal challenges, exceeding all expectations in providing your school a quality AFJROTC program and fortifying the resilience of your cadets. In light of this, I am awarding your unit and cadets the AFJROTC Resiliency – COVID-19 Award. All enrolled cadets assigned to your unit from 1 March 2020 until 30 June 2021 are authorized to wear this award. Congratulations to you, your instructor team, and the cadet corps! I am extremely proud of your instructors and what they have accomplished during these uncertain and challenging times. Your instructors are exceptional role models and have always found a way to persevere and provide a high quality AFJROTC program, even in the face of uncertainty and adversity. This award is in recognition of your unit and your instructors rising to meet this challenge head-on! Thank you for your continued support in working towards our common goal to develop citizens of character for America. If you or your instructors have any questions regarding this award, please ask your instructors to contact their AFJROTC Regional Director. Sincerely LESLIE A. MAHER Brigadier General, USAF Commander cc: AFJROTC Instructors
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.
