She wrote, “The Osceola School District appreciates the understanding, support, and patience from the Harmony Wrangler community as we take this precautionary measure to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff members,”.
The message sent to the parents was, “The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted multiple staff members at Harmony Middle School during this past week. The Osceola School District has worked closely with the Department of Health, and at this time, there is no evidence of any secondary transmission to students. Out of an abundance of caution, the Osceola School District has decided to move all face-to-face teachers and students at Harmony Middle School to digital learning starting Monday, August 31, for the next two weeks,”.
