Ocean Beach Elementary 2023-24

Welcome to the new school year! On behalf of our entire staff, I want you to know how much we are looking forward to seeing all of you for our first day of school on Monday, August 21st. This will be my 10th year as principal of OB Elementary and I can’t imagine working anywhere else.

Here are a few important items regarding the upcoming school year:

The first day of school will be a minimum day for all classes. Dismissal will be at 12:15pm. Our UTK and Kindergarten classrooms will have minimum days each day for the first two weeks of school.

On Friday, August 18th, UTK and Kindergarten classes will be posted at 9:45am at the garden gate on Santa Monica Avenue. There is also an orientation meeting for parents of UTK and Kindergarteners that same day. Teachers will meet families according to last names at the following times:

10:00-10:20  Last names A through I

10:20-10:40  Last manes J through R

10:40-11:00  Last names S-Z

Classroom assignments will be posted at 5:00pm on Friday, August 18th behind the double gate on Newport Avenue. School starts at 7:45am and dismissal is at 2:10pm. Our standard minimum day is on Thursdays, with all classes dismissed at 12:15pm.

Our playground is undergoing renovations. The good news is we will have two new play structures on the main campus and a new one across the street for classes K1 and K2. The bad news is they won’t be completed until the end of September.  We will be making some adjustments and utilizing the grass field until the structures are complete.

I hope you will be able to join us for our Welcome Back event on August 26th. Our hardworking PTA has a day of fun planned for all students and families right on our grass field. There will be games, music, and other fun activities. Bring your own blankets and chairs and join in on the fun.

We look forward to seeing everyone on August 21st!
