Dear Oakwood CUSD #76 Families, At approximately 3:50 PM today we were made aware of an accident east of Oakwood on Rt 150. Two of our High School students were in a pickup truck and while turning were struck by another individual who was on a motorcycle. The person on the motorcycle was not a student. Our two students are safe and did not receive any injuries and were released from care. We are so thankful for the well-being of our two students. Our thoughts and prayers are with the driver of the motorcycle who was transported for medical care. Thank you to our first responders for their care and service to everyone involved. Sincerely, Larry Maynard, Superintendent

Due to the extreme heat and how that will impact our school bus riders during their afternoon route home, we are going to take extra hydration precautions for our students and provide a water bottle for their ride home.
