Cell Phone Safety

If you choose to send your child to school with a cell phone, please remember that you take full responsibility if it is lost or stolen. Please also remind your child to turn off their cell phones as they enter school and during the school day. They can turn on their phones at dismissal. Thank you for your help!

Thank you to our Malibu partners and the Hanneman Family!

We'd like to thank all of our Malibu partners and the Hanneman Family for adopting almost 20 families this holiday season. Their generosity and kindness to our South Oxnard community was very much appreciated. We'd also like to offer a big thank you to School Board Member Siugen Constanza, Counselor Laura Hernandez, Mrs. Betty Johnsen and Mrs. Missey Hernandez for helping coordinate the event.
