The Red Oak PFA has been working for years to get another handball wall. We are so happy it is now being installed. Thank you to all the families who have donated and continue to donate to the Red Oak PFA to make this and other projects possible! Thank you also to the PFA for volunteering their time and working so hard for all of our children.

Thank you so much for all your support in making this year's Jogathon the school's biggest fundraising event in Red Oak's history!
We have been in consultation with the California Highway Patrol and they have agreed to increase patrols near the schools to increase safety and to ensure enforcement of traffic laws. In Oak Park, which is an unincorporated community in Ventura County, traffic code enforcement is the primary responsibility of the CHP. Please be aware that fines for violating traffic laws in school zones can be quite steep and some cannot be erased from your driving record by completing traffic school.
As a reminder, here are some tips to help congestion around the schools and improve safety:
Use the Kanan Shuttle - this service is FREE and subsidized by OPUSD for this purpose. For more information, schedules, etc. please visit this website: http://www.kananshuttle.com Arrive early and allow your child to start school with some playtime on the yard or to catch up with friends before going to class. Carpool even for just one day a week. Every trip counts. If you live in the community form a walk or bike to school club, even just one day a week. When the community was designed, the schools were all placed to be within walking distance of most of the homes. Be extra careful to make a complete STOP at all stop signs. ALWAYS heed the crossing guards. Remember the speed limit is 25 MPH in school zones and it will be strictly enforced. Protecting the safety of our children needs to be our number one priority when driving around the schools.
The Medea Creek Middle School PFA is looking for parents who want to volunteer next year at the middle school. If you are interested in one of these PFA positions please contact Lisa Harris (PFA Parliamentarian) at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out what positions are available. We could really use your help.

Any request for supplies or donations toward the purchase of supplies, materials, equipment, field trips, programs, etc. is completely voluntary under the law in California public schools. Students may not be charged for participation in educational activities and may not be discriminated against or denied participation for not providing voluntary donations to the school. Should any student or parent believe they were impermissibly charged a fee or required to provide materials or supplies that they would not have otherwise voluntarily paid or provided, an application for reimbursement may be filed with the District by calling (818) 735-3206.
