Welcome to the Osceola School District

Home of the Indians

On behalf of the Osceola School District, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our district webpage.

Our outstanding staff of teachers, support personnel, and administrators have the pleasure of serving nearly 525 students. The Osceola School District is honored to have established partnerships with the supportive Osceola patrons and community. The Osceola School Board is committed to providing our students with the best possible education and resources available.

As your superintendent of schools, my number one goal is to be sure our students are provided with a safe and nurturing learning environment.

On behalf of the district, I want to thank the parents and community for their continued support of Osceola Schools.

If I can ever be of assistance or service to you individually, please do not hesitate to email, call or come by my office.

Dear Parents:

Winter weather is upon us, and it is important to review procedures for school closing or delaying the opening of school due to snow and inclement weather. 


The state is now allowing schools to use virtual learning on snow days so they do not have to make up the days. Using virtual learning on snow days would require us to anticipate a closing the day before a weather event to send home computers with elementary students. This scenario is a difficult one for everyone and for a one-day closure, it’s just not practical. However, if we see a large storm coming that could result in several days out of school, we may send home computers and implement virtual learning if the closure lasts multiple days. At this time, we will use snow days as we normally have in the past.  


School Closure:

You will be notified of a school closure through a School Messenger text, website, and Facebook post. The district will also notify local news channels of our school closure. We will make every attempt to make a cancellation as early as possible to help parents make arrangements.


Early Release:

Should there be an early release, you will be notified through a School Messenger text, school website, and Facebook post.


Make sure that all of your phone numbers and contact info are up to date in our school information system (SIS) so we are able to contact you in case of a school closure.
