  • Cough, Cold and Flu Season is Here!

    Dear Students and Parent, 

    Please remember that, at heart, Mountain Oaks is a homeschool/independent study program, so please do not feel that you have to bring sick students (or parents) to school. 

    Our attendance is based on the work completed by students in the home setting . . . not whether they are in class . . . so please be courteous to others, and kind to yourself and your family, by staying home if you or yours are sick.

  • Fundraisers

    This is a busy time for everyone and most of us will be spending some time shopping.  There are a couple really good ways to help support the school while doing nothing more than your regular shopping.

    Amazon Smile: AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.

    eScrip: eScrip is the best way to raise funds for the organizations you want to support. After you’ve signed up, earning is easy - just shop at thousands of eScrip merchants online, and grocers and drug stores in your town.  The merchants then donate a portion of the proceeds to your chosen organization.
