Volunteers and Subs Wanted!

OUSD and Santa Margarita have many opportunities for our community members to be involved. We are excited to be welcoming family members back to campus as classroom/special event volunteers. There are different types/levels of volunteers. Please see the attached flyer.

OUSD is always looking for substitutes for certificated (teacher) and classified (duty supervisor, classroom aide, etc.) positions. For more details visit EdJoin for classified or certificated job openings.

Photo Policy

Santa Margarita prides itself on providing a safe and inclusive environment for all students. Please be aware that we have a photo policy to protect the privacy of students on our campus. Each year you are asked to complete the Data Confirmation for your student(s). Families have the option to permit or prohibit the use of their student's image. There are many reasons families may have for prohibiting the use of their child's image including but not limited to negative social medial exposure and legal concerns.

We ask that you respect the privacy of all students and refrain from taking pictures or videos that may have others in the background on our campus or through our gates. If you would like to capture your student's image for your own personal use, please ask a staff member to assist you in doing so in an area without other students present.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our administration.

OUSD Dog Policy

OUSD has a policy prohibiting dogs on campus. While we recognize that our four legged friends are part of your family, we ask you to please be mindful of students or family members that may be allergic or have a fear of dogs. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Safety Information

The Oceanside Unified School District is committed to maintaining safe and secure campuses in order to promote the health, and well-being of our students, families, and staff. The following prevention practices are in place to support the safety and security of our school.

  • In September, all of our staff will participate in an Active Assailant training where we will learn and practice response protocols for keeping our students safe in the unlikely situation involving an armed intruder.
  • Our school regularly practices disaster and evacuation drills with our students and staff, including a minimum of two lockdown drills per year.
  • Our school has the support of the Provost Marshall Office (PMOs) who provide a police presence, are regular visitors on our campus, and who will respond to any safety issues that arise at any of our schools.
  • Our school has the Raptor Visitor Management System which tracks all visitors or volunteers entering campus. Authorized visitors are then presented with a clearly marked identification badge.
  • Our school has a comprehensive Crisis Response Plan that is reviewed annually with all staff, and placed in all classrooms, that details how to safely respond to specific emergency situations.
