Young Writers' Camp

This summer, Oceanside Unified School District and the National Writing Project at CSUSM will partner to offer a Young Writer’s Camp to students entering the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade next fall from June 9-13, 2014.  During camp, students will examine and experience the writing process, meet and collaborate with a local published author, and present their work at an Open Mic celebration.  The camp’s goal is to inspire students to develop their own writing craft.

promotion and end of year activities expectations

Dear Parents and Eighth Grade Students,

Believe it or not, it’s time to start planning the end of the year activities for our eighth grade students. As we begin ourdiploma.jpg second semester of the 2013-14 school year, we should all be reminded how exciting this time of year is for all our students, but especially our eighth graders. Eighth grade students will be excited about the beach bash and promotion, as well as moving to the high school.

Traditionally at this time a year, we find that many of our students start to lose interest in schoolwork and increase their interest in socialization. However, it is King's expectation that all students continue to follow the district, school, and classroom policies that were set forth at the beginning of this school year and reinforced throughout. In order to ensure that all students are prepared for promotion and the beach bash, we decided to start early and remind often!

The end of the year activities have a criteria that must be met by May 1, 2014. Students who do not meet the criteria will not be allowed to attend promotion or end of the year events.  Letters have been mailed home to the families of all 8th grade students.  For a copy of the letter in English and Spanish, click HERE.  This letter outlines the criteria that have been established for promotion and Beach Bash, including a GPA requirement and dress code.  It is important that EVERYONE understand what our expectations are.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact an administrator or counselor.

OPD Traffic News

traffic.jpgOPD officers are in the area of the school at both drop off and dismissal times in an effort to ensure the safe travel of all students.  Please abide by the traffic laws and posted zones, show respect for school staff, and be courteous drivers.  The safety of all of the children is our primary concern. 

  • The bike lane was modified along Mesa Drive to allow for more parking along the north side of the road.  This parking area is not being used and is available to ease drop off and pick up of students.  This is a less congested alternative to the busy MLK park parking lots. 
  • The “right turn on red” ability from westbound Mesa to northbound Via Rancho is now restricted during student drop off times.  Violations will be enforced, and tickets will be issued. 
  • Please respect the red curb lines and do not park there to pick up or drop off a student.  This includes the driveways to the church.
  • Please respect the direction of school security staff as they try to assist students in using the crosswalks.  Do not block the crosswalks.  Additional crosswalks have been added on the access streets near the school.  Tickets may be issued any time you are blocking a crosswalk.

We are also continuing to get reports of parents dropping off their students in the middle of traffic and kids running between vehicles!  This creates a very unsafe situation and a student will be hurt.

Marquee Requests
