Letter to Community from OUESD Board of Trustees



 from Superintendent Greg Hetrick

Welcome to the Oakley Union Elementary School District Website.  Thank you for taking time to log onto our website and find out all about all of the Amazing things that take place in our District.  I know it goes without saying that the COVID-19 Pandemic has caused a lot of changes in all aspects of our lives and definitely education.  It is my hope that you find our website informative and useful and if there is something that you do not see and need to know, please let us know.  One of the things that I say frequently is, “Working together we do make a difference.”  This is one of my core beliefs and I am committed to doing what needs to be done to get to work with you.  In addition to working together I am committed to building relationships with everyone in our educational community, being transparent in all that we do and through that fostering an environment throughout our district that all stakeholders can trust what we are doing.  As a District, we are committed to working hard to find ways to get all of our District’s families, friends and supporters to become actively engaged in our schools.  We take the education of our nearly 5,200 students very seriously and we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be challenged academically, supported socially and emotionally, in addition to having the opportunity to become actively engaged in the school they attend.  Our District Vision, listed above, serves as our guide to all that we do.  I want to ensure that you are informed of all the activities that take place in our District and I encourage you to login and see what amazing things are taking place at each of our nine sights. 

We are all going to continually be challenged due to the impacts of COVID-19 but working together we are going to get through this.  We are committed to doing everything necessary to provide a robust educational program while we are in Remote Learning.  All of us want to be able to get back to school as we have known it and as soon as it is safe to do so we will make the transition back.  Until then, we have to continue to look at new ways to stay involved and ensure that ALL STUDENTS get what they need.  Again, I thank you for taking the time to read my message and for visiting our website.  As your Superintendent, I am excited about what this school year has in store for us and I hope to hear from you.  You can follow me on Twitter @GregHetrick or reach me via email at or by phone at (925) 625-5050.  Thanks for all that you do.  

Have a great day!!
