At that time, ALL returning students will need to complete the data confirmation to be registered. Please bring in the signed data confirmation page, along with 2 proofs of residency. The following documents are possible proofs of residency:

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you all in August!

Testing for Lead in Our Water

It is critical to the Oceanside Unified School District that the water used by our students and staff is safe. Out of an abundance of caution, the district requested water testing from the City of Oceanside and Camp Pendleton. Click here for more information.
