Vero Beach, FL, August 21, 2017– Official post remediation testing and air quality testing reports indicate satisfactory results and approval for re-occupancy for Osceola Magnet School’s 700 wing.

Osceola Magnet teachers who occupy the 700 wing will have the opportunity to move back into their wing this afternoon, and students will start the day in their normal classrooms on Tuesday. The School District of Indian River County’s Physical Plant and Maintenance Department have conducted a walk-thru and visual inspection of the 700 wing prior to teachers and students reoccupying the classrooms. All wings are now open at Osceola Magnet school. A normal attendance routine for all students is expected starting Tuesday, August 22, 2017.

Principal Scott Simpson added, “We are so proud to have been able to provide a positive learning experience to our students this last week! I would like to personally thank all of the teachers, parents, and district staff that rallied together to make this week possible. We are so fortunate to be a part of this incredible school community!” Official testing results and credentials for EE&G, Mr. Restore, and AIRMD, mold remediation and air quality testing companies, are available on the School District of Indian River County’s website and Osceola Magnet School’s website.
