Ortona & Osceola Combine as ‘Beachside Elementary’


An exciting transformation begins this summer as Ortona and Osceola Elementary schools combine to become the new Beachside Elementary School!

For the 2021-2022 school year, Beachside Elementary will be housed on the current Osceola campus in Ormond Beach while the new school facility is constructed on the campus of the current Ortona Elementary.

Students who attended Ortona or Osceola this past year, as well as new students coming in, will start school at the new Beachside Elementary at 100 Osceola Avenue, Ormond Beach, on Monday, August 16. Beachside will be temporarily located there for about a year.

For the new school year, the parent drop-off and pick-up for car riders and the bus loop will be switching to help with traffic flow. Parents who are bringing their child via car will use Osceola Avenue to enter the car loop and will exit on Seminole Avenue. The bus loop will be at Lucky Drive.

The new facility to be built for Beachside Elementary will open at the Ortona site, located on North Grandview Avenue in Daytona Beach, in the 2022-2023 school year (expected opening is between August and December 2022).
