Oakwood remains focused on the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and extended Oakwood community members given the evolving public health situation surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We currently have preschool through 12th grade students engaging in both on-campus and remote learning.

We are monitoring developments and recommendations related to COVID-19, from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We encourage others to educate themselves by visiting the websites listed on this page.

Oakwood has developed a robust COVID-19 Operations Plan for reopening. If you have any questions or need to contact the school, please send an email directly to our Pandemic Team at

Oakwood faculty, staff, and students are screened daily before arriving on campus using our COVID-19 Screening Checklist or the Fever Free app. This allows our Pandemic Team to closely monitor symptoms and enforce our mitigation plan effectively.

Any students or staff exhibiting symptoms shall immediately be required to wait in the Oakwood School isolation area until they can be transported home or to a healthcare facility.

I can’t tell you how impressed I have been with Oakwood on how they have tackled this pandemic challenge head on. The dedication from the staff for daily entry and exit checks for hand spraying and temperature check monitoring, through the teachers having to manage the on-site and off-site teams of students as well as preparing their curriculum in both the classrooms and at home and having to switch back and forth as needed. The janitorial staff for constantly cleaning the campus to keep the kids safe and for all the communication that has been prepared and published to the parents to keep us informed. Without all of Oakwood’s staff efforts, our kids might not have been able complete the school year. The hybrid of on-campus and remote has benefited both Kelly and myself greatly. You are all doing an AMAZING job!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
