    Hello Chiefs,

    This is Dr. Solomon Lowery, principal of Osceola Middle School. I am calling to inform you that a social media threat was made against our school on the Snapchat. The threats were investigated by law enforcement and are not credible. Students and staff at Osceola Middle are safe and we appreciate when concerning information is shared with law enforcement. Making threats about school safety are a criminal offense. Please speak with your student about responsible social media use to help us ensure a safe learning environment. If you have any questions, please call our school during regular office hours.

    Thank you.

We need your assistance in resolving this with our staff before Report Card Grades are submitted.

    Good morning OMS Community,

    Thanks for another busy but productive week at Osceola Middle School. Please know that if you received and returned the ELP/tutoring letter that was sent home with your child’s progress report and indicated that you want your child to attend ELP; your child has been enrolled. Please review the schedule (attached) to ensure that your child is attending the ELP session(s) that you indicated for your child (Credit Recovery is different from Tutoring).  A few students are currently in need of Credit Recovery and you would have been contacted via phone if your child needs this intervention.  Please be sure to take advantage of our ELP FREE tutoring resource for your child.  Feel free to contact your child’s School Counselor if you have questions or concerns.

    Reminder: Students should not arrive on campus before 9:00 a.m.  There’s no Adult Supervision prior to that time unless prior arrangements have been made and your child’s attending a meeting, club, event, etc.  Letters will be sent home with students who arrive early as a warning prior to administering of school consequences.  We want all our students to attend school daily but it causes safety concerns if they are unsupervised.  YMCA before/after school services are available (see the link on the website or stop by the front  office to enroll your child).

    Have a relaxing OMS Chiefs weekend!  OMS Chiefs Update 10-1-18
