The school has been repainted, has new ceiling tiles and carpet, and new wall graphics. These improvements have been made before students return for classes since the deadly mass shooting.

According to officials, the elementary and middle school students within the community wrote notes of love and encouragement on hearts and snowflakes. These notes will be hung on the lockers of the high school students.

Oxford High School students have been on a hybrid schedule, and last week they had half days at the middle school to help them readjust being inside a classroom.

On top of the new look at the high school, the Wildcat community has introduced a new comfort dog for the students. This, amongst other services, will be available for staff and students at Oxford High School to help them cope.

“We want them to see very clearly that we are there, we are available, and we’re doing everything we can to make them not only feel that safety but feel reassured that we can get through this together,” says Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard.
