Welcome to Florosa Elementary School

Superintendent's Message:

3/30/2020: Following a statewide meeting this afternoon with the Commissioner of Education, I wanted to share with you that school closures across the state have been extended through May 1st. as we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic in Florida and the nation. During this time, all district employees will continue to follow health precautions outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.com), and we urge our students and families to do the same.

ClassLink Access to Odyseeyware:

ClassLink access to Odysseyware should be working; we are finding that some users are not waiting for the Single-Sign On process to complete (up to 7 seconds) when they click on the Odysseyware App in ClassLink before attempting to move forward or closing the app and assuming the SSO does not work.

 If waiting does not resolve the issue and the student is stuck at the Odysseyware site, they can get through by entering their One Okaloosa ID/username (but in all lowercase letters).  The password for Odysseyware is the word student, which also must be lowercase.  This username and password configuration is specific to Odysseyware and will not work anywhere else.  Again, try waiting up to 7 seconds when clicking the Odysseyware link in ClassLink before trying this method.

In addition, iPad users who are using their personal device may need to download the Classlink Launchpad app from the App Store.

For those using personal laptops, they may need to download the Chrome browser extension if they are using Chrome. They may also need to install the Classlink OneClick extension (from Google Chrome)  found here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/classlink-oneclick-extens/jgfbgkjjlonelmpenhpfeeljjlcgnkpe?hl=en

Additional iPad Information:

  1. On an iPad, students should access ClassLink using the app that is installed on the device, not by going to ClassLink through the internet.
  2. For Odysseyware, once a student is logged in to Odysseyware, if they actually click the sign out button, the single sign on will not work the next time.  The student should just click the X at the top right of the page if they are a single user of the device and that will keep Odysseyware working for them.

It is always best practice to sign out of ClassLink.  If multiple students are using the same iPad, it is a necessity.

Respiratory Illness Prevention

During this time of peak flu season and in collaboration with the Department of Health in Okaloosa County we ask that you help us protect our students and staff by practicing the following prevention steps: Prevent Respiratory Illness.

Florosa ES Family Engagement Plan (PFEP):

The Florosa ES Family Engagement Plan (PFEP) was approved by Florosa Elementary School’s School Advisory Committee (SAC) on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.  It provides a guide on how Florosa reaches out to and communicates and works with parents as partners. Please take a moment to review the programs we have in place for parent engagement.  We welcome and look forward to your input and comments on the PFEP.

Florida DOE 2018-2019 School Report Card:

The Florida DOE 2018-2019 School Report Card is generated from the Florida Department of Education. The data provides demographic information, reports on assessments and achievements, and compares our data to students across Okaloosa County as well as from across the state.

Parent Satisfaction Survey:

Our district is on a continuous journey to make our schools the best places for students to learn, staff to work and parents to send their children for a great education. In this effort, we appreciate your support. It is important to gather feedback from you to celebrate successes and identify areas for growth. Please take a few minutes and complete this Parent Satisfaction Survey to help provide this feedback.

Once the survey is complete, the results will be analyzed by an outside organization. The data from the survey will be returned to the District to be shared with each school, its parents and the community.

The survey can be accessed online at OCSD Parent Satisfaction Survey. Our school may also provide you with a paper copy to complete.

The survey will be available through March 13, 2020.

Thank you for your interest in and support of your child’s education with us. Please contact your school if you have any questions concerning the survey.
