A Tradition of Excellence in Academics, Athletics, and Fine
Dear Tawas Area Family,
On behalf of the entire Tawas Area School District, I would like to extend our most sincere condolences to those impacted by the tragic event at Oxford Community Schools yesterday. Our schools should be places that provide nurturing, caring, support and guidance, not violence or loss of life.
As we move forward, reflect, and process the events that took place in Oxford Community Schools, please remember that times like these present opportunities for all of us to come together as a community, as well as to support, listen, and care for each other. It is times like these that we need to support our colleagues, friends, and families.
Finally, please know that our Tawas Area staff and students have been trained and they practice for scenarios like this to protect everyone involved within the school. We also have dedicated local law enforcement officers and first responders that meet on a regular basis with school officials to be prepared to respond to active shooter situations in all buildings.
Please keep the students, staff, parents, and entire Oxford Community in your thoughts while they navigate this tragedy.
Thank you for your continued support of Tawas Area Schools,
Superintendent, Tawas Area Schools
