Breakfast and Lunch

Mustang Families,

We are fortunate to continue to offer breakfast and lunch to our students at no cost. There are a few changes this year. Your child will need to input their student i.d. number into our POS system when receiving food. They will receive a card from Nutrition Services with this information to assist them.

Please Note: Breakfast is served from 7:45 - 8:10 daily. If your student is dining with us, please have them here early enough to get and eat their breakfast before the first bell. Second chance breakfast is no longer available. If you wish your student to have a snack during morning recess, please send one with them.

Data Confirmation

If you have not already done so, please visit your Aeries profile and complete the data confirmation. This ensures that we have the most up-to-date information for your student and family.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter,

Santa Margarita Staff

Please consider spraying your student with repellent, outfitting them with repellent bracelet or mosquito protection of your choice. Our Health Tech has been very busy providing relief for our students with bites.

Camp Pendleton has frequent pellet drops in the areas surrounding the school to help mitigate the issue. The next drops will be Sept. 23 and Sept. 30 & Oct. 1.

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.
