    Community of Oakdale,                                                                             04/01/2020


    I want to thank you for your assistance in a safe and efficient closure of schools. As we have navigated the first weeks of closure, the State Superintendent of Instruction Tony Thurmond and Governor Gavin Newsom have now directed that all schools in the state remain closed through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. We need all students to fully turn their attention to their respective school’s distance learning platform and stay current with the strategic activities listed by their teachers. The OJUSD will begin collecting student work for credit/grades beginning the week of 4/20/20. It is imperative that we give all our students, and particularly our seniors, a chance to address any grades that need improvement. The work collected will only be used to improve a student end of year/semester grade. Again, I cannot overemphasize the importance of students contacting their teachers via our distance learning platform located on each school site’s individual website.

    We will work with each graduating class to find a date later in the summer/fall to hold the graduations. As a District we are fully committed to providing our students the traditional ceremonies as soon as social distancing protocols are lifted.

    In the coming days and weeks, we will provide more information regarding grades, transcripts, scholarships, summer school and continued distance learning instruction.

    Please stay safe and follow the safety procedures that have been established by Stanislaus County Public Health.

    Valley Oak Jr and Senior High School



    Mission Statement

    ​We believe that every student is entitled to an educational environment that best suits his or her academic abilities, learning styles and personal needs. At Valley Oak High School, using the alternative strategies of independent study, all students will develop skills for successful living and become productive and responsible citizens. The teachers role is to be the student's guide, mentor, counselor, and advocate. We encourage parents and caregivers to take an active role in the student's learning and life plans.

    Principal's Message

    Students matriculate to Valley Oak Junior and Senior High School through a referral process from the comprehensive junior high school or high school, transfer from the continuation high school, or from out-of-district placements upon moving into district boundaries. Students and their parents/guardians must voluntarily choose the independent study methodology that is employed at this school. Reasons that students attend include medical hardships, family hardships, safety considerations, court order, or other conditions that render placement at either the comprehensive or continuation high schools inappropriate.
