Ocean Beach Families: We have been made aware of a TikTok trend pertaining to nationwide school shootings and bomb threats supposedly being planned to take place on Friday, December 17th. There have been no threats against the Ocean Beach School District. Local law enforcement agencies are aware of this nationwide trend and will support us. If you become aware of a specific threat to our district, please report it immediately. If you see something, say something. We will continue to monitor the situation along with law enforcement. Threats to our school or individuals will not be tolerated.
Rumor Control There are apparently rumors floating around Facebook regarding COVID testing and vaccination. To be clear the school district will do NO testing and/or vaccinating without parent permission. We are offering COVID testing in order to shorten quarantine periods; however, it is always the parent's choice and parent permission is required each time. The only exception to this is the required rapid testing for athletics. This testing is approved by the parent at the start of the sports season. As for vaccination, we will send out information for parents who are interested to know when and where they can get their children vaccinated, but we are not in the vaccination business, and we will not be vaccinating students. If we offer a vaccination clinic on a school campus, that, again, would be for parents who are interested and would not be a function of the school district. We would simply be allowing an outside provider such as the health department to vaccinate students that parents bring to the clinic. As for requiring vaccination for students, we are not in support of this at this time because this vaccination has not gone through the full medical process, and are, in fact, lobbying the governor to not take this step at this time. Chris Reykdal and the state superintendents are in favor of waiting until the medical community does its full review. This vaccination is new, and any process to require it should take time for the medical research to be fully vetted. We are not in support of a vaccination mandate for students until full medical revue occurs. I hope this helps alleviate some concerns.
