Outside food that will be shared with others should be SB12 compliant. Use this link to help determine appropriate snacks.


  • Items must be SB12 compliant (Smart Snacks calculator determines if the snack is appropriate: low sugar, sodium and fat)
  • Store bought (this would allow us to know all ingredients for the safety of the students with allergies)
  • Pre-packaged portions (this will prevent cross contamination)

New Student Registration or Current Student Data Confirmation 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.
