OCPS offering free meals during summer | West Orange Times & Observer | West Orange Times & Windermere Observer

orangeobserver.com The school district is a sponsor of 2019 Summer Food Service program, which offers free meals to students ages 18 and under throughout the summer.

This year, the Florida Department of Education has moved both FSA and End of Course (EOC) testing windows to the last four weeks of the school year. With this change, the results of the FSA and EOC scores are planned to be released later than in past years. Typically, final report cards are available in mid-June, which includes final grades for courses impacted by EOC scores. Due to the testing windows being moved to later in the year, the State expects test scores to be released in late June, which will ultimately delay report cards. Parents will be notified that they will receive updated communication from OMS once final report cards are available.

Just a quick reminder!!

NO EARLY RELEASE TOMORROW: In order for students to have the opportunity to complete testing without running out of time, all schools will be scheduled for a full day instead of the normal early release on May 1st, 8th & 15th.

8th Graders zoned for Ocoee High School, see below for some important information.

Oakland Avenue to Undergo Design Changes

OCOEE, Fla. – As part of the City of Ocoee’s historic downtown revitalization, Oakland Avenue between Bluford Avenue and Lakewood Avenue will be closed for reconstruction on Monday, February 4 through April 8, 2019. Traffic on Bluford Avenue will not be affected. Traffic on Northbound Lakewood Avenue approaching Oakland Avenue will be directed to turn right toward Lakeshore Drive. The sidewalk on the south side of Oakland Avenue through the closed section of the block will remain open for pedestrian access to Ocoee elementary and middle schools. Attached is a road closure illustration.

When the construction work is completed, Oakland Avenue will be transformed into a cul de sac that will be permanently closed to through traffic making it a safer and more livable public space. It will have angled parking on both sides with an attractive brick paver surface. The new Oakland Avenue will have access only from Bluford Avenue and will no longer connect to Lakewood Avenue. Oakland Avenue will end at the entrance to the Ocoee Lakeshore Center parking lot. The Ocoee Lakeshore Center, West Orange County’s premier event destination, is currently under construction to provide a 400-seat main facility and a separate 125-seat space. This project is scheduled to be completed in April 2019.

The intersection of Oakland Avenue and Lakewood Avenue will be converted to a curve. The section of Oakland Avenue that will be removed from service will be turned into a pedestrian bridge linking Ocoee’s downtown area to the lakefront without having to cross a street. Construction of the new Ocoee City Hall on the block bound by Bluford Avenue, Oakland Avenue, Lakewood Avenue and McKey Street is expected to begin in July 2019. This construction should not affect local traffic flow. Plans for Oakland Avenue and the city’s lakefront improvements can be viewed by visiting https://www.ocoee.org/839/Lakefront-Park-Improvements.

Don’t forget!!! Testing begins tomorrow! Monday we will test in Periods 1 and 2, Tuesday in Periods 5 and 6, Wednesday, Period 3 and 4, and Thursday, Period 7. Please see below for block schedule. Periods are changes to different times to accommodate the time needed for a test. ALL students will need earbuds/headphones that plug into their computer. Please make sure all computers are charged tonight!!

Over the course of the next week, students will be taking part in multiple exams; I-Ready Diagnostics in Math and ELA, Performance Monitoring Activities in 8th grade Science and Civics and also semester course exams. Please consider the importance of these exams when making appointments or withdrawing students early. These exams will result in changes to the normal class order and block periods. We are asking that all students bring personal headphones (earbuds) next week. These will be needed on our Reading Diagnostic exams. Finally, I would also encourage parents to set up their own home based rewards and reinforcement for their child. This is especially important for parents of our Carinal Elite and Cardinal Diamond students. Remember that even though your student may be a typically high performer, we want to ensure they maintain that high level through the spring exams. Again, remind students to bring their personal earbuds next week. Thank you all in advance for partnering with Ocoee’s Middle School to ensure success for our students.

Mark your calendar! December 13 will be Multicultural Night at Ocoee Middle School from 6-7:30 pm. Details below!
