Yes, we require that students be fully immunized against certain diseases. If there are medical reasons or reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, that the student will not be immunized, the parent or guardian must present a certificate or statement for an exemption.

My child must take medication during school hours. What is the protocol?

If it is necessary for a student to bring medication to school, we must receive it in its original container. Please include a note of instruction, signed by the student’s parent, and deliver it to the district nurse in the office upon arrival to school. Students may not keep medication for self-administration. Please see the Student Handbook, available within the Parent Information and Student Information quick links on our Home page, for exceptions and for additional information.

Does Oakwood ISD have a dress code?

We have established the district’s dress code to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided they comply with the district guidelines. 

The principal has the right to make a judgment about what may reasonably be expected to cause a disruption or interference with normal school operations. For a more detailed list, and to find out about the dress code concerning hair, shoes, and jewelry, please read our dress code policy available within the Parent Information and Student Information quick links on our Home page.

For a list of the requirements, please see the Counseling page on this website. And more detailed information is available in our Student Handbook which is available within the Parent Information and Student Information quick links on our Home page.
