Principal's Message

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE (2016-2017 School Year)

WELCOME TO A NEW SCHOOL YEAR!  I am excited to welcome everyone new, and returning to the new school year. The start of this year has been one of our best. To every new family joining Ocean View let me extend my personal WELCOME. You have joined a community that takes great pride in its school.  We welcome you!  Our diversity, teacher commitment and parent support is second to none. To our returning families, WELCOME BACK and I hope you are as excited as I am for the start of a new year. I speak for all the teachers when I say we look forward to working in partnership with you this year.  Here are a few: 

Ocean View Parent Teacher Association: The PTA is one of the best ways for families to stay connected and be a part of your child’s education.  This coming year has many exciting PTA events for parents and families to participate in. Our first big community-fundraising event is the annual Fall Festival/Walk-a-thon scheduled for Saturday October 15th. PTA supports Ocean View School with many of the things that enrich our students’ daily experience. We look forward to having you be a part of this wonderful event.

Back Again this Year: Breakfast was a huge success last year and we are thrilled to be able to continue this service. Daily from 8am - 8:15am in the lunchroom. Breakfast/lunch Menus are listed on the AUSD web site: www.albany.k12.ca.us and will be available at the counter in the school office.


Drop Off and Pick up:  If you drive your child to school, please remember that the front of the school can get very congested. Some tips to make this a less stressful and a SAFE experience include:

■   Children should not arrive earlier OR stay later. We do not provide ANY supervision available at these times. 

■      Street parking for parents can be found on Jackson Street, Buchanan Street, and the back parking lot of Ocean View Park.

■    The STAFF PARKING lot is for staff parking only

Back-to-School Night:  Mark your calendar for Ocean View Elementary School’s Back-to-School Night scheduled for Thursday, September 15th, 7:00 p.m. Teacher information and the Teacher/Parent Handbooks, containing school year calendars and other important information, will be distributed at that time. 
School Safety:  Bicycles, scooters and skateboards must be walked at all times when on the school campus and that they should only be ridden once they leave school.

Free/Reduced Lunch Applications: Applications can be found on the AUSD website www.ausdk12.org or visit the office and pick up a copy. Ocean View Elementary School offers a school breakfast and lunch program that includes a breakfast and lunch with accompanying milk (included in the breakfast/lunch price) -- or you may purchase milk separately if lunch is not desired. – Please call Food Services: 510-558-2608 if you need more information.

On behalf of the entire staff and teachers at Ocean View School, we look forward to serving you and your children.
