On May 25th, the Volusia County School Board decided that the Osceola and Ortona Elementary schools would join to be called Beachside Elementary. The mascot of Beachside Elementary will be the sea turtles.

The name and mascot were the most popular choices of students, staff members, and parents taken in a recent survey.

The school will be located at the Ortona Elementary campus, while Osceola Elementary acts as a temporary school for both student populations

According to the school board, it’s rare to rename a school or name a new one since all new schools are reconstructed on existing campuses.

Beachside Elementary is expected to be completed for the 2022-2023 school year.

The School Board will discuss the school’s colors at an unspecified later date.
