  • Reading Olympics

    On April 24, sixteen members of the OAHS Reading Olympics team represented Oxford at the Chester County Reading Olympics competition at the CCIU. Oxford's two teams placed 1st and 3rd against teams from around the county and combined, read nearly 100 books – a great accomplishment for busy high school students. Reading Olympics is a fun event and a great way to encourage pleasure reading as a lifelong habit.

  • Good evening Oxford Area Community,

     

    The OASD administration has been made aware of a work stoppage impacting our largest food service distributor.

Our dedicated professionals are diligently working to rewrite appropriate menus for the remainder of this week. Please be assured that students will continue to have access to healthy, nutritious meals during this disruption. Updated menus will be posted below as soon as they become available.
