    OJUSD Schools will be closed beginning on Thursday March 19, 2020 and will be resuming on Monday May 4, 2020.

    Community of Oakdale,

    It is with great reservation that I announce that the OJUSD will work in coordination with the other school districts in Stanislaus County and be closing all schools at the conclusion of school on Wednesday 3/18/2020 in response to the coronavirus. There are many factors in play, but here are the facts. The dates of the OJUSD closure will be Thursday 3/19/2020 through Sunday 5/3/2020. School will resume on Monday 5/4/2020. The dates of this closure are two-fold. 1) Short-term school closures have proven ineffective in mitigating the virus. 2)These dates coincide with the dates of closure for the Stanislaus County Office of Education. The only staff that will be working are those that are deemed as essential for the continued operations of the OJUSD. Effective 3/19/2020 there will be no outside use of any OJUSD Facilities for the length of the closure. This includes athletics, performing arts and any other outside entity. This is an initial communication to keep us all updated on the very latest information. Additional information will follow as it becomes available.

    • Please encourage our students to utilize the supplemental academic activities  and communicate directly with their specific teachers during this time of closure via  the web based platform available on each school’s website. Simply click on the “Enrichment Activities” icon on the main page. These activities are specifically designed for all our students to stay academically stimulated in preparation for a strong finish to the school year.
    • For planning purposes the OJUSD will begin collecting student work for credit on 4/20/20 from our distance learning platform that is currently being utilized for strategic enrichment activities. At this time we plan to fully reopen school on Monday 5/4/20. The OJUSD will do everything in our power to create a memorable finish to the 2019-20 school year for all our students.
    • The work of K-12 school districts has been identified as critical to the infrastructure of community well-being. You will see OJUSD employees essential to the maintenance of this infrastructure executing their duties during this time of closure.
