Welcome to Week 36!

Welcome to another week! This is the last full week of school of 2020-21. We have concluded the scheduled state assessments, however, there are a few small groups of students who are still taking parts of these assessments this week. Students are also completing their iReady end of the year diagnostic assessments as well as their end of the year unit assessments. Many end of the year celebrations including awards ceremonies, AR reward events, as well as PBIS days will take place during these last weeks of school. Let’s finish strong!

Incoming Kindergarteners Registration and Screening May 17 and May 19 by Appointment Only

The incoming kindergarten screening starts today! Please call our data processor Mrs. Cathy Storey at 863-461-5100 to register for your appointment. We ask that our incoming kindergarten students are brought in for a screening at that time as well. Families can complete the online application packet as outlined in the OCSB Kindergarten Roundup Flyer, OR, they can come and pick up a paper packet from our school office this week. Students will NOT be registered until we have the complete enrollment packet along with all the required documents on file.

Zonewaiver Applications are Available 

If you have an incoming kindergarten student but you do not live in our zone, you will need to turn in a zonewaiver for the 2021-22 school year. Link to zonewaiver applications: https://forms.gle/eoSMnSzxfKM3c8pd8


Students that are currently on a zone waiver and plan to remain at that school next school year, DO NOT NEED TO FILL OUT A NEW ZONE WAIVER.
