NOVEMBER 15, 2022 - SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS' DAY Thank you - Oakwood School Board Members As Superintendent, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to one of the hardest-working groups of volunteers in the community. The Oakwood Community Unit School District No. 76 Board of Education is elected by the community to represent the values and people of the community in the oversight and direction setting of the schools.

October 4, 2022 Dear Oakwood CUSD #76 Families, Earlier today our grade school and junior high school administration, staff, and students safely and successfully evacuated the facility due to a fire alarm activation that occurred when the wiring on one of our cooking oven hoods malfunctioned (No Smoke or Fire Occurred). During this incident, no one was injured. Once the first responders inspected the building we were given the all-clear to resume school. Thanks to our Unit Office Staff we were able to secure and provide lunches for those students who had their lunches interrupted. Our equipment has been inspected and is working properly as well as extensive cleanup procedures. We appreciate the support and assurance from our local fire department. School Safety is our number one priority. Please note that there will be an adjusted menu for the remainder of the week. Yours in Education, Larry Maynard, Superintendent
