Read our superintendent's official welcome back message for the new school year that includes valuable information regarding what to expect as we open our schools for instruction on August 11th.
The Oak Grove Summer Enrollment Center will be open July 1st - July 26th (Monday to Thursday, closed July 5th) from 9am-3pm daily. The summer enrollment center is located at the Oak Grove School District, 6578 Santa Teresa Blvd., San Jose, CA 95119.
On March 11, 2021, our District Board of Education unanimously adopted “A Resolution Denouncing Hate Crimes and Bigotry Targeting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders'' thanks to the collaborative work of Trustee Beija Gonzalez, OGEA President Maripaz Berlin, teachers Kellee Humphrey, Kirat Sachdev, Board President Jorge Pacheco Jr., and Franklin-McKinley School District Board President Maimona Afzal Berta. We are horrified that less than a week since our Resolution passed, the mass killings in Atlanta, Georgia that took the lives of eight people, six of whom were Asian women, terrorized the nation. We stand in solidarity with the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community and condemn the attacks that occurred in Atlanta, Georgia on March 16, 2021.
Our hearts are heavy alongside our AANHPI communities that are experiencing traumatic and racist attacks in the Bay Area, across our state and around the world. For so many in the AANHPI community, worrying for the safety of yourselves and your loved ones on a daily basis is a very real experience. No one should be worried for their own safety or fear for their life ever, especially for being a member of the AANHPI community.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, family members and service workers of the San Jose VTA. Our hearts and prayers go out to the children and families affected by this tragic and senseless shooting. We understand this can be a difficult time for parents/guardians, teachers, staff, and students. We are here for you. We want to provide our entire Oak Grove community information for support, included below. Please share if you know someone in need." - José L. Manzo, Superintendent
