OCPS families and employees, we hope everyone made it safely through the storm. We are very thankful that our schools and facilities avoided any major impacts. We want to let you know all schools and district offices will return to normal operations tomorrow, August 31. All after-school activities will resume tomorrow as well.

I am happy to announce that due to the adjustment in our instructional minutes this year students will NOT have to make up the lost day due to Hurricane Idalia. A decision on the make up day for 10 and 11 month employees will be forthcoming.  We appreciate all of our employees who assisted in preparing for the storm and helped with the assessments and clean up. We look forward to our students and employees returning tomorrow. We truly appreciate your support and patience over the past several days. Of course, our thoughts are with those impacted by Hurricane Idalia in the Big Bend area of north Florida.

Thank you for your support of Orange County Public Schools.


Dr. Maria Vazquez, Superintendent
