 Oakcliff 3rd grader, Magzie decided to spend her time at home creating a website about the Corona Virus and COVID-19.  You can find it here at  
Summer Resources
Dear parents and students,
What apps and things will be available this summer?  Students can work on most Clever apps over the summer, until the passwords and logins change. Here's a breakdown of some of the programs will last and until when.

IXL Math and ELA - will work until Oakcliff's license runs out in September or October of 2020? Science and Social Studies are free for the summer, and may end at IXL's discretional free access during Covid-19.

Clever - holds several apps and links to a variety of websites and online apps. Some are free, while others require a login. As long as your lunch number s9# login works, you can get to the Clever-the-Rocketship-Launchpad and Verge. At some point in the summer, passwords will all jump up one number when the district promotes you.

Verge - holds the courses students were enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year. Those courses and links inside should work until the district promotes students to the next grade & switch their classes. This typically happens late in the summer, and depends on when the school's Assistant Principal does the schedules for the 2020-2021 school year.
Typing Club & Teach Your Monster to Read & TinkerCAD & Code.org - will work through next school year when Ms. Miller will promote everyone and issue new passwords.  All of these programs are available

Happy Numbers & Kodable -- will probably work on the on Verge schedule.

The Oakcliff Faculty and Staff hope everyone is able to use these resources over the summer. We look forward to seeing everyone as soon as it is safe. Until then, happy online learning and social distancing this summer. 

Important Information for 2020-21 School Choice Lottery

Dr. PaschallGreetings Parents!

As previously shared, we are on track with the 2020 lottery. We know you are excited and we are excited for you! We all need a little excitement right now, so why not the School Choice Lottery?Please be mindful of the information below as we move through the selection phase of the lottery process.
    1.    On Friday, March 27, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. you may log into your application dashboard to see your lottery results.
    2.    Email notifications will go out starting at 5:00 p.m. Please note that due to the volume of emails generated, everyone will not receive their email at the same time. The software releases in waves. Again, you may check your dashboard at 5:00 p.m. for immediate results.?
    3.    It is highly recommended that you check your inbox and junk/spam folder. Please don't miss out because you did not check!
If your child is selected:
    •    Read the entire selection email.
    •    You must log into your dashboard and accept the seat within 5 business days or the seat will automatically decline and go to the next applicant on the waitlist. Once it's gone, it's gone. 
    •    Do not attempt to accept or decline on your cell phone, the platform is not set up for mobile use. This can result in mistakenly clicking the wrong selection. Again, once a seat is gone, it's gone.
    •    If your child is selected for more than one program, whichever program you accept will decline all other offers. Please make sure you are certain before you click accept. Once the others are gone, they're gone. 
    •    Due to the current circumstances, there is no set date(s) for registration. Once the registration dates have been determined, you will receive correspondence via this same platform (email). It is critical that you check your email regularly for correspondence.
    •    If you do not accept the seat and register once the dates are announced, your child's name will be placed on the "no show" list and the seat will go to the next applicant on the waitlist.?
If your child is waitlisted:
    •    The waitlist moves as applicants decline seats. We have no way of determining when or if your number will come up.?
    •    Patience, patience, patience. Things often change throughout the Spring and Summer, such as applicants declining seats and families moving away, which opens up seats. All is not lost if you are not selected tomorrow!

Please remember that this is an exciting, as well as an emotional time of year for parents seeking School Choice options for their children. We cannot stress enough that for every action, there is a reaction. If you allow your acceptance window to pass and the seat automatically declines, please understand that the software will immediately move up the next person on the waitlist. We must be fair to everyone.

Dr. Paschall¡Saludos Padres!

Como hemos compartido anteriormente, estamos en camino a la lotería 2020. ¡Sabemos que están emocionados y estamos emocionados por ustedes! Todos necesitamos un poco de emoción ahora, así que, ¿por qué no la lotería escolar? Por favor, tengan en cuenta la siguiente información a medida que avanzamos a través de la fase de selección del proceso de la lotería. 

  1. El viernes, 27 de marzo de 2020 a las 5:00 p.m. puede iniciar sesión en su tablero de aplicaciones para ver sus resultados de la lotería.
  2. Las notificaciones de correo electrónico comenzarán a las 5:00 p.m. Por favor, tengan en cuenta que, debido al volumen de correos electrónicos generados, todos no recibirán su correo electrónico al mismo tiempo. El software envía de a poco. De nuevo, puede comprobar su tablero de aplicaciones a las 5:00 p.m. para obtener resultados inmediatos.
  3. Es muy recomendable que revise su bandeja de entrada y la carpeta de basura/spam. ¡Por favor no se lo pierdan por no revisar su correo electrónico!

Si su hijo es seleccionado:

  • Lea todo el correo electrónico de selección.
  • Usted debe iniciar sesión en su tablero de aplicaciones y aceptar el asiento dentro de 5 días hábiles o el asiento será declinado automáticamente e ir al siguiente solicitante en la lista de espera. Una vez que perdió, se perdió. 
  • No intente aceptar o declinar en su teléfono celular, la plataforma no está configurada para uso móvil. Esto puede resultar en hacer clic erróneamente en la selección equivocada. Una vez que un asiento se ha perdido, se ha perdido.
  • Si su hijo es seleccionado para más de un programa, el programa que usted acepte rechazará todas las demás ofertas. Por favor, asegúrense de estar seguros antes de hacer clic en aceptar. Una vez que los demás se han ido, se han ido. 
  • Debido a las circunstancias actuales, no hay una fecha o fechas establecidas para el registro. Una vez determinadas las fechas de inscripción, recibirán correspondencia a través de esta misma plataforma (correo electrónico). Es crítico que revisen su correo electrónico regularmente para la correspondencia.
  • Si usted no acepta el asiento y se inscribe una vez que las fechas son anunciadas, el nombre de su hijo será colocado en la lista de "no show" (no se presentó) y el asiento irá al siguiente solicitante en la lista de espera.

Si a su hijo lo ponen en la lista de espera:

  • La lista de espera se mueve a medida que los solicitantes rechazan asientos. No tenemos manera de determinar cuándo o si su número aparecerá.
  • Paciencia, paciencia, paciencia. Las cosas a menudo cambian a lo largo de la primavera y el verano, como los solicitantes declinan asientos y las familias que se mudan, lo que abre asientos. ¡No todo se pierde si no eres seleccionado mañana!

Por favor recuerden que esto es emocionante, así como una época emocional del año para los padres que buscan opciones de elección escolar para sus hijos. No podemos dejar de insistir en que, por cada acción, hay una reacción. Si permiten que su ventana de aceptación pase y el asiento declina automáticamente, por favor entiendan que el software subirá inmediatamente a la siguiente persona en la lista de espera. Debemos ser justos con todos.
