Speak up, Save lives, Your eyes and Ears Could Save Lives

Oakwood Schools is partnering with the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Public Safety to provide an anonymous tip line that could prevent a school safety crisis.  Calls and texts to the tip line, 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764), are answered 24 hours a day by trained professionals who can help.

This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement officials about threats to student safety—whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student.

If you see something or have concerns, say something.  Don't wait until it's too late.



New Text & Voice Notices

Oakwood Schools is making staying informed
even easier with our new text and voice
notices. Stay tuned for information on how
you can register.
