TRAFFIC FLOW PLAN

King Parents-

We are excited to offer you a new morning student drop off option. Due to parent feedback concerning traffic issues on Ivey Ranch Road near, the front of the school, King will be emending its traffic plan with the city.

Starting Januarys 4th, we will be opening the gate on Mesa drive near the edge of the tennis courts. Parents will be able to park along the west side of Mesa drive, and students may enter at the “tennis court gate”. There will be a Security guard manning this gate from 7am until 730am Monday through Friday.

The West side of Mesa drive provides ample pull-in and pull-out space so please avoid the traffic on Ivey Ranch at the front of school by dropping your student at the new entry gate starting January 4th.

 

Best,

Greg Smedley

Principal

Open Enrollment School of Choice (SOC) For the 2016-17 School Year Green Zone: January 4, 2016 – March 31, 2016

The Oceanside Unified School District Board of Education maintains its commitment to provide educational choices to families to meet the diverse needs of all students. The district’s Open Enrollment School of Choice (SOC) Policy (5116.1) is regulated by space availability.

 

The following schools are capped for the 2016-17 school year due to enrollment being at capacity:  El Camino High School, King Middle School, Ivey Ranch and Foussat Elementary Schools.  Only those applicants eligible for priority “C” (sibling), “D” (feeder pattern), or “E” (parent/guardian is an OUSD employee at requested site) will be allowed to apply for these capped schools. 

Green Zone applications will only be available at the Educational Support Services Office at 2080 Mission Ave in Oceanside.

 

  • If your child is currently on a SOC and will remain at the same school next year—there is no need to reapply. 
  • If your child is currently in entering kindergarten, 6th or 9th grade, you need to apply for a SOC for the 2016-17 school year if you want your child to attend a school other than their school of residence.
  • Only applications received during Green Zone will be considered in the first round lottery process for School of Choice placement.  This is not a first come, first served arrangement… all applications date stamped within Green Zone are given the same consideration within their priority categories.
  • NO e-mails or faxes will be accepted.
  • Two forms of address verification must be presented with the application. Acceptable proofs of address are current utility bills, cable bill, rental agreement or mortgage statement.  If these forms of verification are not in your name, a completed Shared Residency form will be required.
  • Parents will be notified by the last school day in May through U.S. Mail that their application has been approved, denied, or placed on a wait list.  Please do not call to check on the progress of your application before that time, as answering these calls takes away from our time to process applications.
  • Transportation is not provided for any student approved for School Of Choice.

 

For questions or concerns regarding SOC, please contact:

monthly newsletter.jpg

Principal Smedley is very excited to provide the monthly Middle Years News Letter for parents.

The purpose of the newsletter is to show parents how to improve their children's school success- and behavior-during the middle years. 

Middle grade children go through dramatic changes and desperately need their parents’ support. Many parents want to help, but aren’t sure what to do. With Middle Years, this will provide you with articles that will help:

  • understand their middle graders’ behavior
  • build respect, responsibility, empathy, and more
  • support homework and study skills
  • stay involved—middle-school style
  • set age-appropriate rules and expectations
  • promote health and safety
  • emphasize the importance of education
