Osceola Science Charter School -- November 3, 2017

Principals Corner

Dear Parents,


Excessive Tardies

We are seeing an excessive amount of unexcused tardies each day. Remember that traffic and oversleeping are not excused tardies. Please be sure that your child gets to bed at a reasonable time so that they can get up to eat a good breakfast and arrive on time (before 8:00AM) so they don't miss out on valuable instruction time. Also, each time a late student enters a classroom, it causes many of the other students' attention to be distracted from the teacher's lesson.


Lottery Applications and Open House for 2018-19

Be sure to let your friends and family know that we will be holding an Open House for new students and their parents who are interested in attending our school for the 2018-2019 school year. It will be on Saturday, December 16th 10AM and 11:00AM. This is a great opportunity for them to learn about Osceola Science Charter School by touring our school, visiting classrooms and teachers, and getting questions answered at an Administrative presentation which will kick off each session. No RSVP is necessary.
