The School District of Osceola County, tasked with keeping our children safe, says it will ensure their health and safety, and is monitoring the global concern about coronavirus.
The district is in constant communication with Osceola County Emergency Management and the Florida Department of Health about coronavirus, and is following their guidance. At this time, there have been no cases of coronavirus identified in Florida, but ask parents and students to take the same common-sense precautions that apply to other infectious diseases we do see regularly, like colds and the flu.
The most important are having students stay home from school if they are sick, covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and washing your hands frequently with soap and water.
For additional information, visit the Florida Department of Health’s website at http://www.floridahealth.gov or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at https://www.cdc.gov/.
The district will follow recommendations from county and state health officials in the event school closures are necessary, and will communicate with parents immediately as it receives any new information.
