Thanksgiving Week Holiday November 23-27

All schools and office sites in the Oceanside Unified School District will be closed Monday, November 23 through Friday, November 27 in observance of the annual Thanksgiving Week Holiday. Schools and offices will re-open during their normal business hours on Monday, November 30.


On behalf of the OUSD Board of Education, the district wishes you and your family a safe and enjoyable holiday break.

Support OUSD Schools

Move your feet before you eat! Join us Thanksgiving morning at the 10th Annual O’side Turkey Trot.

All participants can designate a participating OUSD school as their beneficiary and $5 of your registration comes back to the chosen school at NO COST to you!


Since 2006, the race has become a holiday tradition in North County, with 10,000 running and walking in 2014. All that has helped raise more than $210,000 for local schools and non-profit organizations over the years. Be a part of the fun this Thanksgiving!


OUSD Site Transition Update

On September 22, the Oceanside Unified School District School Board voted to approve a petition to open a charter school of the arts for grades 7-12. As a companion, district administration proposed to open an arts-focused K-6 school. Both schools would be housed on the Jefferson Middle School campus and were anticipated to open in August 2016.


Members of the community have expressed concerns about the possible closing of Jefferson Middle School. Also, in taking preliminary steps towards the facility planning, we have discovered that it would be virtually impossible to complete the needed environmental reviews in time to open the schools in fall of 2016. As a result, the decision has been made to postpone the proposed opening of both schools by a year.


Community Conversations on this subject were scheduled to begin on November 16. These conversations will be rescheduled until we have additional information to share.


We look forward to working with students, parents, staff and the community over the next year on a plan for the transition of the Jefferson campus.

Federal Survey Goes Home Oct. 7

Help OUSD Obtain Additional Funding

On Wednesday, Oct. 7, students will be bringing home the annual Federal Survey for parents to complete. The surveys need to be returned to school on Thursday, Oct. 8. The federal government provides funds to Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) based on the results of this survey and all OUSD students will benefit from any funds that are garnered from participation in the survey.

The survey is used to determine the number of parents in the OUSD who work or live on federal property. Federal Property includes:

• All Military Bases (Camp Pendleton, Miramar, MCRD)

• Indian Tribal Lands (including casinos)

• Immigration Offices

• Homeland Security Offices

• FBI Buildings

• Farm Land on Federal Property

• Border Patrol Offices

• Federally-subsidized Housing

• San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station

• Construction Projects on Military Bases

Thanks in advance for your timely participation in the survey. Please call 760-966-4012 if you have any questions about the survey.

  • Limit pressure washing to once a week in lunch areas only

  • Limit irrigation to twice weekly

  • Reduce irrigation to nonessential turf/planters

  • Reduce irrigation to athletic fields used for PE to mandated levels

  • Check irrigation usage at each site monthly
