    Complete the #OaklandUndivided Tech Check survey


    Garfield Wildcats! Please fill out the Oakland Undivided Survey to determine if your child is eligible for a FREE CHROMEBOOK & INTERNET HOTSPOT to keep!

    When you answer the survey, remember that the computer you borrowed from Garfield *DOES NOT COUNT* as your own computer. When asked if you have a computer at home, they are asking if your family has a computer other than the one you borrowed from school.

    If you qualify for the free computer/s, once they arrive, you will bring the Garfield computer that you borrowed and trade it for a new computer to keep. Qualifying families will receive one computer for each child in their family. Siblings do not have to share
    Here is the survey: If you need help, please reach out to your teacher!



    Familia Wildcat! Por Favor de llenar la encuesta “Oakland Undivided” para determinar si su hijo es elegible para una computadora gratis para mantener!

    Cuando responda la encuesta, recuerde que la computadora que tomó prestada de Garfield *NO CUENTA* como su propia computadora. Cuando se le pregunta si tiene una computadora en casa, le preguntan si su familia tiene una computadora que no sea la que tomó prestada de la escuela.

    Si califica para una computadora gratis, una vez que lleguen, traerá la computadora de Garfield que tomó prestada y la cambiará por una nueva computadora para mantener. Las familias que califican recibirán una computadora por cada niño en su familia. Los hermanos no tienen que compartir Aquí está la encuesta: Si necesita ayuda, por favor de mandar mensaje a su maestro(a).


    Grab and Go Meals 


    Grab 'N Go Meal Sites 20-21


    Now serving only students enrolled in OUSD. Starting August 10, OUSD can only distribute breakfast and lunch to students who are actually registered and enrolled in OUSD District-run schools (due to a new federal rule). In other words, we can no longer provide meals for children too young to be enrolled in school or students enrolled in charter or private schools. Families can still pick up multiple days of meals. Each time you pick up food at a distribution center, you must “verify” or prove your child’s enrollment by providing your child’s Aeries student ID# by doing one of the following:
    • Bring the letter mailed by Nutrition Services this week, that explains the changes and includes your child’s ID# and a scannable barcode.
    • Bring your child’s student ID card with their Aeries ID# from the previous year (and ideally have a barcode in order to be scanned).
    • Wait in a separate line and have your child’s information looked up in a district database at the food distribution site (this could be a slow process and we highly recommend families bring a copy of their letter).


    Families can pick up food at any of the 22 meal service sites. Monday and Thursday will remain the distribution days and the serving time will expand an hour each day, extending from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The sites for fall 2020 are: Allendale, Bella Vista, Bret Harte, Castlemont, Cleveland, CCPA, Elmhurst, Esperanza, Fremont, Frick School of Language, Garfield, Hoover, Horace Mann, International Community School/Think College Now, La Escuelita, Life Academy/UFS, Madison Park Upper, Manzanita Community & SEED, New Highland/Rise, Oakland High, Sankofa United, and West Oakland Middle.
