    Community of Oakdale,                                                                             04/01/2020


    I want to thank you for your assistance in a safe and efficient closure of schools. As we have navigated the first weeks of closure, the State Superintendent of Instruction Tony Thurmond and Governor Gavin Newsom have now directed that all schools in the state remain closed through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. We need all students to fully turn their attention to their respective school’s distance learning platform and stay current with the strategic activities listed by their teachers. The OJUSD will begin collecting student work for credit/grades beginning the week of 4/20/20. It is imperative that we give all our students, and particularly our seniors, a chance to address any grades that need improvement. The work collected will only be used to improve a student end of year/semester grade. Again, I cannot overemphasize the importance of students contacting their teachers via our distance learning platform located on each school site’s individual website.

    We will work with each graduating class to find a date later in the summer/fall to hold the graduations. As a District we are fully committed to providing our students the traditional ceremonies as soon as social distancing protocols are lifted.

    In the coming days and weeks, we will provide more information regarding grades, transcripts, scholarships, summer school and continued distance learning instruction.

    Please stay safe and follow the safety procedures that have been established by Stanislaus County Public Health.

    Principal's Weekly Message

    Beginning Thursday, March 19, our school and District will be closed through the conclusion of the 2019-2020 school year.

    Good evening Magnolia Families! By now you have most likely heard that our school building will remain closed through the remainder of the school year. This does not mean that student learning will stop. Our teachers will be converting their Enrichment Pages to Assignment Pages beginning April 20th. Be sure that you are accessing these sites for student assignments. If you have any questions about them, please contact your student’s teacher. We are developing plans for end of the year activities such as the return of school materials, return of student personal materials from classrooms, yearbook distribution, and the like. Please be sure to check our website for updates and be prepared for automated calls home with information. Please be patient with us as we navigate these unprecedented times and find ways to accomplish our tasks with health and safety on our minds. We dearly miss seeing you and our students and I hope you and your families are safe and healthy. Be well!

    School lunches will be available for weekly pickup on Monday, April 6th, and will also be provided to students for Spring Break Week on Thursday, April 9th.  Lunches for Spring Break Week may be picked up at Cloverland Elementary School on Thursday, April 9, 11 am – Noon. Lunches for the weeks after Spring Break through the end of the school year may be picked up at Cloverland Elementary School on Mondays, starting at 11:00 a.m. and ending at Noon.  Children must be present to receive a meal.

    For our families that will be receiving a device from the District, devices will be handed out from Cloverland Elementary on April 8.
