Orange County Public Schools is in constant communication with the Florida Department of Health regarding the spread of COVID-19. After extending spring break by one week through March 27, the Governor previously declared that all schools will remain closed until April 15, and subsequently the Florida Department of Education has extended the closure of schools in Florida and a continuation of distance learning until at least April 30. State testing has been cancelled this spring. All extra-curricular activities are and will be suspended until further notice.
OCPS continues to monitor the situation. Meanwhile, we encourage you to learn more about what the district is doing to protect students, and steps you can take to protect your family, at the link below.
