2021-2022 Welcome

Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
We hope everyone enjoyed a restful and relaxing summer break! We are excited to welcome back our students and families to our school campuses for full-time, in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year which begins on August 11, 2021.
 
As students and staff prepare for the new school year, the continued health and safety of all continues to be our main priority. Protocols such as face coverings, self-check health screenings, and hygienic procedures will continue to be in effect for the new school year. Additionally, these enhanced health and safety protocols will be implemented in our extra-curricular activities such as athletics, visual and performing arts and after school programs.
 
In addition to our in-person learning option, we understand that there are still some families that feel unsure about returning to in-person learning for health and safety reasons. To meet the needs of our families, Oak Grove School District will offer an Independent Study option through our Virtual Learning Academy for all students in grades TK-8 in addition to full-time, in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. Families will get the option to choose the best learning option for their child(ren). Please see below for additional details and information on how to enroll your student(s) if you would like to apply for our Independent Studies option for 2021-22.

The Oak Grove School District will continue to monitor guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and will inform parents, students, staff and the community of changes in health and safety practices if/when guidance is changed in a manner that impacts our Oak Grove community.
 
We look forward to welcoming back all of our students and families on our first day of school, Wednesday, August 11th. Please continue to check the Oak Grove District website (www.ogsd.net) regularly for updates in addition to ParentSquare for detailed information from your child’s school regarding important information for the first week. We appreciate your continued partnership and collaboration!

Sincerely,
 
Jose Manzo signature
