Orange County Public Schools is in constant communication with the Florida Department of Health regarding the spread of COVID-19. As of March 3, Florida had three presumptive cases of the disease. 

OCPS is taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously and is dedicated to ensuring proper protocols are in place to protect staff and students. The district’s current cleaning products are proven effective against the coronavirus (the virus that causes COVID-19). When respiratory or gastrointestinal outbreaks occur, schools are disinfected.

If a student or staff member exhibits symptoms, he or she will be encouraged to stay home.
