New Calendar for 2013-14
Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, the first day of class for all OUSD students will be Tuesday, August 20, 2013. The slightly earlier start date is a result of a new district-wide calendar unanimously approved by the OUSD Board of Education. The change was made during the board’s regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, March 13, 2012.
Other minor changes regarding the revised calendar beginning in 2013-14 include a shorter Thanksgiving Week holiday and an end to the first semester at the winter break (December 20, 2013). The last day of instruction for students will be June 4, 2014.
The district asks that all OUSD families please take note of these changes in order to plan accordingly for the start of school in August 2013. For questions regarding the calendar change, please call 760-966-4008.
The OUSD Student Wellness Policy focuses on nutrition and physical education.
Foods and beverages sold to students through the district’s child nutrition program, student stores, vending machines and fundraisers meet or exceed state and federal nutrition standards. Nutrition education is provided as a part of the district’s health education program.

South Oceanside students really socked it !!
South Oceanside students really socked it “Sandy” by raising $1000 for our sister school district Oceanside School District in Oceanside, New York. Mr. Fenter, Assistant Superintendent of Oceanside School District NY, wrote “I was touched that you thought of us, and we appreciate the generosity of your faculty, students, and families in supporting the “other” Oceanside on the East Coast. Although our school district sustained much damage from the storm and had many supplies destroyed, we have also been blessed by the generosity of those who have reached out and donated books, supplies, money, and prayers to help us during this difficult time. It’s such an uplifting example of how we can reach out and help others in time of need….” Way to go South Oceanside Seahawks --- you have made a positive difference in the world!!!
