Hello Jaguar Families,
I would like to welcome our students and families back for the new school year. Also new this year is our new name-we are now officially the Dr. Manuel M. Lopez Academy of Arts & Science. We are honored to take on the name of an Oxnard hero, Dr. Manuel M. Lopez. All students within Ventura County will be starting the school year in distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. OSD is rolling out many new tools for students and parents to greatly enhance student outcomes during distance learning. All students will be using one platform, Canvas, to access their teachers, curriculum, and assignments. Canvas will also be accessible for parents. Please monitor your email and phone as there will be a great deal of information coming out to students and parents before the start of the school year. We are committed to making distance learning a success for every student as we partner with our parents. Training to use Canvas will be provided for students and parents in the upcoming weeks. Please feel free to reach out to me via email with any questions that you may have.
