The 2016 Endangered Species Day Open House at the Nature Center will be a time for the whole family to experience the wonders and joys of nature. Attractions will include live snakes and lizards as part of Eco-Vivarium’s traveling zoo, raptors from the Raptor Institute, and Dovie Christianson’s tortoise and turtle family.

A Nature Scavenger Hunt and checklist will help guide visitors to the various exhibits and activities. We’ll go on a bug-hunting expedition with our nets, and learn how to weave our own baskets with the California Indian Basket Weavers. With the help of a high-powered microscope, we’ll examine the wiggly life in a drop of lagoon water. There will be loads of other fun activities to do as well, including making nature journals, and masks. And you can bring home your very own milkweed plant!

Please bring your family and friends and join the fun. It’s all free, of course!

Open Enrollment School of Choice (SOC) For the 2016-17 School Year Green Zone: January 4, 2016 – March 31, 2016

The Oceanside Unified School District Board of Education maintains its commitment to provide educational choices to families to meet the diverse needs of all students. The district’s Open Enrollment School of Choice (SOC) Policy (5116.1) is regulated by space availability.

 

The following schools are capped for the 2016-17 school year due to enrollment being at capacity:  El Camino High School, King Middle School, Ivey Ranch and Foussat Elementary Schools.  Only those applicants eligible for priority “C” (sibling), “D” (feeder pattern), or “E” (parent/guardian is an OUSD employee at requested site) will be allowed to apply for these capped schools. 

Green Zone applications will only be available at the Educational Support Services Office at 2080 Mission Ave in Oceanside.

 

  • If your child is currently on a SOC and will remain at the same school next year—there is no need to reapply. 
  • If your child is currently in entering kindergarten, 6th or 9th grade, you need to apply for a SOC for the 2016-17 school year if you want your child to attend a school other than their school of residence.
  • Only applications received during Green Zone will be considered in the first round lottery process for School of Choice placement.  This is not a first come, first served arrangement… all applications date stamped within Green Zone are given the same consideration within their priority categories.
  • NO e-mails or faxes will be accepted.
  • Two forms of address verification must be presented with the application. Acceptable proofs of address are current utility bills, cable bill, rental agreement or mortgage statement.  If these forms of verification are not in your name, a completed Shared Residency form will be required.
  • Parents will be notified by the last school day in May through U.S. Mail that their application has been approved, denied, or placed on a wait list.  Please do not call to check on the progress of your application before that time, as answering these calls takes away from our time to process applications.
  • Transportation is not provided for any student approved for School Of Choice.

For questions or concerns regarding SOC, please contact:

Educational Support Services
Student Services Department
2080 Mission Ave - Oceanside CA  92058
(760) 966-7849 or (760) 966-7802

Please pick up your students promptly after school

Gates open at 7:45 am.

School starts at 8:15 am

Dismissal is at 2:55 pm and 12:25 pm on Wednesdays

Office closes at 3:15 pm

 

BoxTop Collections

Box Top Collections and class competitions occur monthly! Be sure to get your Box Tops turned in the Wednesday before the next pride assembly to make them count for that month! Be sure to write your child's name and room number on the back if you would like for them to be entered in the extra prize drawing. Class with the most BoxTops will receive the trophy filled with a special prize! Two additional students will be choosen at random for extra prizes! Keep on collecting those BoxTops!
