October 30, Listening Sessions for PreK-5th Grade

Dear Oxford families of students Prek- grade 5,

As referenced in our earlier message, the school board and I have established school level parent listening sessions and a community listening session for next week. These sessions are to sit down with our families and community to hear your reflections on the report and share our progress in reviewing the final report. The details regarding the session for your student’s grade level are listed below.  If you have students in multiple levels, you will receive an invitation for each level and are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions:

Listening session for PreK and elementary school level families: 

November 8, 2023, at 6 p.m. – 7:30 pm in the Lakeville Elementary Cafeteria

A listening session for the community is planned for Thurs., Nov. 9, at 6:00 – 7:30pm in the Oxford Middle School Media Center. 

As with the first report, we will share our response after thoroughly reviewing the report. We remain guided by our commitment to excellence, our desire to respond with compassion and empathy to those impacted, and our commitment to be a learning institution.  For your reference, the final report can be found at this link: https://oxfordresponse.com/.

The Oxford community has shown extraordinary acts of compassion and caring even in the midst of tragedy. We are immensely grateful for the support and partnership we have received as we endeavor to make a difference in the lives of our students.
