7th Grade Required Immunizations

Students entering, attending, or transferring to seventh grade in Florida schools are required to have one dose of tetanus-diptheria-pertussis (Tdap) vaccine. When your student has received this immunization, please bring in the immunization certificate on Florida Form 680 to the front office prior to the first day of school. Students will not be able to receive their schedule or start school without proper immunization documentation.

School Meals

The USDA has announced that ALL students -- regardless of family income -- will be able to have a free breakfast and lunch at their school during the 2021 - 2022 school year! This is for the basic breakfast and lunch offered. For lunch, students may still purchase a la carte items. Despite this period of free breakfast and lunch offerings, we need families to continue to complete the application for Free/Reduced Lunch to ensure federal funding for needed programs in the future. An online application is available HERE.

Student Insurance

In collaboration with Fowinkle School Insurance Agency, OCSD is recommending a Student Accident Insurance option that is a one-time payment, per child, per school year. More details are available at
