Oakwood Schools to Dismiss Early Nov. 12

Due to the funeral procession for Dayton Police Detective Jorge Del Rio, all Oakwood Schools will be dismissing early Tuesday, Nov. 12.  Lange School will dismiss at 1:30.  Harman, Smith, OJH and OHS will dismiss students one hour early.

The funeral procession, which is expected to be quite long out of respect for Det. Del Rio, will be traveling through Oakwood on Far Hills.  Travel on and crossing of Far Hills will be limited, and eventually stopped, for a period of time starting around 3 p.m. and continuing for about one hour.  Residents are asked to avoid traveling or crossing Far Hills during this time.

We are working with our partners at Kettering Schools to coordinate transportation for our kindergarten students who ride buses in the afternoon.  We will share information with those families directly as soon as we have finalized plans. We will also communicate directly with families whose students are provided transportation through District vehicles for any changes to their daily schedules.

For students involved in afternoon activities, families should contact the advisers and/or coaches directly regarding those activities being rescheduled.  South Connection will still be transported as normal. Remember traveling to Lange School for pick up may be impacted by the restricted travel on Far Hills.

We appreciate your patience as we finalize plans for Tuesday, Nov. 12. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Detective Del Rio’s family, friends and brothers in blue during this difficult time. We appreciate Det. Del Rio’s life-long service and sacrifice to keep our community safe.

Veterans Day 2019

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 text 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.
