Oak Grove Union School District

Dedicated To Excellence In Education


    We are monitoring the PG & E updates and will notify staff/families/students of school closures as soon as information is confirmed and available. In preparation for potential power shut offs, please remember:

    • If power goes out during the school day we will consider the time until dismissal and decide if students will remain on campus through the end of the day.
    • If power is out before school starts and is not expected to be restored promptly, schools will be closed.
    • All notifications of school closures will be through our automated messaging and on our website.

Welcome to our District

  • The Oak Grove Union School District encompasses the areas of West Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Graton in picturesque Sonoma County. The District provides a well-rounded education to over 800  transitional kindergarten through eighth grade students on the Oak Grove Elementary (TK-5) and Willowside Middle (6-8) school campuses. The Oak Grove Union School District, in partnership with our community, strives to create a challenging, safe and caring learning environment for each of our students with focus on: Academic Excellence, Engagement in the Arts, Development of Life Skills, Celebration of Diversity and Stewardship of the Environment.


  • Help Your Child Succeed in School:
    Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early
    School success goes hand in hand with good attendance!

    • Starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.
    • Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read.
    • Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.
    • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
    • Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.
    Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit
    in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance
    will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.


    • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
    • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
    • Find out what day school starts and make sure your child has
    the required shots.
    • Introduce your child to her teachers and classmates before
    school starts to help her transition.
    • Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in
    mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign
    of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
    • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to
    teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on
    how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning.
    • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something
    comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or
    another parent.
    • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school
    is in session.

  • Dr. Celeste Philip, Sonoma County's new Health Officer, has provided the attached letter for parents/guardians regarding current state and nationwide measles outbreaks. In this letter (provided in Spanish and English), she outlines the serious threat measles presents to unvaccinated or under-vaccinated children and strongly encourages any unvaccinated children to get the measles vaccine as soon as possible. SCOE strongly supports this valuable information being shared with parents and guardians.
