sickParents and Guardians, keep your student AT HOME if they have
ANY of the following symptoms:


• Fever greater than 99.9°F -- it doesn't matter if it comes down using fever-reducing medicines such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Controlling the fever does not control the infection!
• Vomiting more than once
• Diarrhea

Colds and influenza are the most contagious during the first 48 hours and we ask that you please keep your student AT HOME if they are not feeling well. Thank you for helping keep our students healthy and in school!

The Okaloosa County School District wants to share important resources regarding
the Coronavirus and information regarding keeping children healthy.Below you will find links for OCSD Quarantine Update and hand washing tip.

USDA Extends Free Meals for Kids through December 31st!


The US Department of Agriculture has extended flexibility in school food service programs through the end of December. This means that all school-age children in Okaloosa County are eligible to receive free meals regardless of the school they attend or their family’s income status. Meals will remain free through the last day of school this calendar year, which is December 18th.

For students in the brick and mortar building, only breakfast and lunch meals are free. Students must pay for any ala carte items. Students will still be required to enter their lunch PIN when receiving a meal so that the district can track meal service for reporting purposes. Meal accounts won’t be charged unless the student purchases something beyond the standard breakfast and lunch.

According to Chambers, it is still extremely important for families to apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits even though meals are free through December.
