The Oxford School District has extended observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and plans to close all school campuses on Friday, January 14 due to staffing shortages. No virtual instruction will take place.

Sources have reported a number of teachers in Oxford High School are on leave for COVID-19 related issues and a few classes were quarantined because of exposure, but these have been unconfirmed. The Eagle has reached out the OSD office to confirm this information.
