Letter to the Editor

The following letter to the editor from Oakwood Teachers' Association President Jay Lane appeared in the Oakwood Register Aug 5, 2020.

To the Oakwood Community,

In prior editions of the Oakwood Register, two editorials asked to hear from teachers.  As president of the Oakwood Teachers’ Association, I am writing this response on behalf of teachers in Oakwood schools.  Since June, I have been meeting with our teachers via video conferences on a weekly basis to discuss elements of the plans for returning to work this fall.  I believe all of us are experiencing some degree of anxiety or fear, some more significant than others.  So, we are wrestling with what the right thing to do is like everyone else.


Face Covering Policy


Oakwood Schools will follow the Ohio Department of Health order requiring face coverings for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
