Dear Oakwood CUSD 76 Parents & Guardians, In awareness and observance of the Solar Eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024, we have chosen a regular attendance day for our students, including indoor learning activities related to this instructional opportunity. If any of our parents choose not to send their child to school that day or pick up their child early that day, they will need to notify the office prior. The absence will be considered "excused" for that time, and makeup work will be due upon returning to school. Yours in Education, Larry D. Maynard, Ed.S. Superintendent - Go Comets! Oakwood CUSD No.76

Dear Oakwood CUSD #76 Families, School Safety Communication is our priority and so we wanted to make you aware that earlier today while three of our high school students were traveling on West I-74 they were involved in a car accident. None of our students were injured and the parents/guardians were notified. The students were safely transported by administration back to Oakwood High School. We are thankful for the safety of our students, and the responsiveness of our high school staff and administration. Thankful, Mr. Maynard

All of the Vermilion County Basketball games for tonight (1/18/24) have been moved to the Bismarck-Henning Rossville Alvin High School location from DACC. This is due to the water issue in Danville. Our Oakwood boys' game will begin at 8 pm. If you prepaid for tickets, you will need to be prepared to show your ID. Otherwise, you have to pay cash at the gate. As of right now, this has been the only decision that has been made for the Vermilion County Basketball tournament. A decision will be made tomorrow on the rest of the tournament. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

It was good to see Santa and the Grinch working together to spread some Christmas Cheer at Oakwood High School as they handed out candy canes today during the student lunch period! It's good to know they both are extreme "Comet" fans!
