Oxford schools dismissing early Friday for 6A state title game

Oxford is playing in its first state championship game since 2015 — and first in Class 6A — on Dec. 6 against last year’s 6A runner-up, Oak Grove.

The marquee matchup is taking place at M.M. Roberts Stadium on the University of Southern Mississippi’s campus in Hattiesburg on Friday at 7 p.m.

To accommodate all those interested in attending the game and arriving in a safe and timely manner, the Oxford School District announced early dismissal times on Sunday.

All Oxford elementary schools will dismiss at 12:20 p.m. on Friday. Oxford Intermediate, Oxford Middle, Oxford High Schools and the Oxford Learning Center will dismiss at 1:33 p.m.

Oxford High students who are planning to attend the game in Hattiesburg will be dismissed at 12:56 p.m.

Tickets to the game went on sale today at 11 a.m. and can be purchased at Oxford Middle and Oxford High Schools. Tickets will be $14 per person.
