Retrieving Student’s Personal Items from Gym Lockers

What:
This is an opportunity for parents to pick up personal items that may have been left in student gym lockers at the start of the Covid-19 Event.

Date: May 19 & 21, 2020
Time: 9:00 – 2:00 pm.

Date: May 26, 2020
Time: 9:00 – 2:00 pm.

How:
Parents will enter the car rider pick-up loop following direction of staff. We will have 4 tables with 2 volunteers at each table along the awning. The items will be placed on the tables alphabetically in bags. Labels will be stapled to the bag identifying the student name/locker number and ready for the exchange process at the specific grade level times outlined above. Parents and/or students will locate property on the tables and sign out accordingly. Standard District protocol will be followed if contraband items are identified during these efforts. Social Distancing Guidelines and PPE use will be in effect throughout the process.

Don’t forget.., Ocoee Middle is a food distribution site!! Open 10-1, Monday thru Friday.

I want to pass on the information we received from Universal Studios regarding the cancellation of Gradventure Events this year:

“With the recent announcement of extending the closure of Universal Orlando Resort to at least through May 31, we unfortunately have decided to cancel our Gradventure Event for May 1, 8 and 15. It was not an easy decision but one that was important for the health of your students. We thank you so much for your patience as we work through all this, as well as everything you did to contribute to Grad Bash 2020. We look forward to work with you again in 2021!”

Based on this communication we will be refunding all Gradventure Payments as soon as possible. If you paid through School Pay, this will be an automatic process. If you paid with a check or cash, please contact Ms. Campbell via email at [email protected]. Please be sure to include your child’s name and mailing address when emailing Ms. Campbell.

Today we were honored by 9 or 10 Ocoee Police Patrol Units with full lights and sirens driving through our food distribution line! The waved and thanked the food distribution staff as they weaved through the line! It was very impressive and very appreciated.

Thank you ODP for you continued partnership especially in these uncertain times. You keep us safe. You keep us secure and you inspire us with your service to the Ocoee Community and our school!
