Emotional Homecoming and Reunion for Brothers and Father

IMG_8331.JPGIt wasn’t what they were expecting!  Brothers David and Adam McIntyre of Santa Margarita Elementary School were shocked to see their father, Staff Sergeant David McIntyre, suddenly appear from the principal's office on Tuesday.  Sgt. McIntyre had been deployed in Afghanistan the past seven months.  His wife Nicky, an instructional aide with OUSD, got a helping hand from Principal Jessica Poumele in surprising the boys.  Watch the emotional reunion in the video posted above.

All 7th through 12 Graders MUST Have the Tdap Immunization!!!

In response to a recent whooping cough (pertussis) epidemic in California, the California Department of Public Health has mandated all students enrolled in public education grades 7 - 12 MUST show definite proof of immunization (Tdap) against this infectious disease before the start of the 2014-15 school year. Immunization is a state requirement. Please see for further vaccination information.


Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) is beginning the implementation of optional Online Registration for new students and Online Data Confirmation for currently enrolled students. Our goal is to make this process more convenient for our families and your busy schedules. Your site will provide information to you regarding this optional process.

If you do not have access to a computer or just need assistance in the process, we have scheduled a series of evenings and two Saturdays to provide assistance. If you prefer to complete the process, as you have done in the past, by using the paper packet we can provide that to you as well.

If your student is currently enrolled in OUSD, you will simply need to confirm their registration. If you need assistance doing this, please feel free to join us on one of these dates.

We look forward to assisting you in our transition to the optional Online Registration process.

"Because Nice Matters" Anti-Bullying Program

4 Types of Bullying

  1. Cyber
  2. Physical: hitting, kicking, taking belongings, or the threat of any of these
  3. Verbal: name calling, insulting or racist remarks.
  4. Indirect: spreading unpleasant stories about someone or excluding someone from social groups.

What bullying isn’t

  • Falling out with people
  • Short term arguments
  • A fight or quarrel between children of equal power or strength
  • Friends breaking up
  • Occasional teasing

How not to be a bully

Ask yourself 5 questions:

  1. Are my actions or words hurting someone else’s feelings?
  2. Are my actions or words hurting someone else physically or making them feel afraid?
  3. Would I want someone else to do this to me?
  4. Am I unfairly taking my anger out on someone?
  5. Am I trying to control someone against his or her will?

Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

If you are being bullied or you witness someone being bullied, get help from an adult.
