Email mailing list

Oakwood Schools uses Messages, an email service provided through our website, for official district and building newsletters, and other email communications.  Having a current account which is subscribed to the correct mailings is needed in order to receive school information. Important information may be missed if you don't create or update your account.  In the past, it was possible to be on certain lists and receive emails without an account.  That process no longer works with the Messages module.  There must be an account for each email receiving Messages.  A good idea is to review your subscriptions at the beginning of each school year.

If you have never created an account associated with the District website, you will need to do so (Go to Creating an Account below).  If you are a staff member or created an account in the past, you should go to Managing Your Account below and follow the directions to make sure your account is updated correctly.

Creating an Account
1.  Go to the District website at  
2.  Hover over the second button from the right at the top of the page and you will see a dropdown menu.  Click on Login.
3.  Click on “Create New Account” from the sign in screen.  Fill out the required fields and click continue.  You will be sent an email confirming registration of your account. 
4.  You can now continue with the instructions in Managing an Account.  

Managing Your Account

2.  Hover over the second button from the right at the top of the page and you will see a dropdown menu.  Click on Login
3.  Enter your username and password you selected when the account was created.

5.  When you hover over your name in the top left corner, a dropdown menu will appear.  Click on Notifications.
6.  If you have previously signed up for certain mailings, you will see those lists.  You can unsubscribe from any list on this screen.  
7.  To add a new list to your subscriptions, click on +Subscriptions (top right).  All of the additional public lists will appear.  If you select a list, it will confirm your account and then you will click Add.
8.  You will now see the newly added list on your main screen.

To receive all of the important information related to your student(s), we suggest you sign up for the "School Information" list for the building(s) your student(s) attend.  There is a "Class of..." list for each grade.  You should subscribe to the lists associated with your student(s) because targeted messages for that grade will be sent using this list.  To receive important information that is being sent out district-wide, you should also subscribe to the Superintendent List.

Forgot Password?
If you have created an account in the past but have forgotten your password for the system, you can go to Login and choose “Forgot Username or Password.”  An email is sent to the email address entered (please double check your address) in your account, containing a link to reset your password.  If you have never created an account, the message will say an email was sent but it will not because it does not know the email to use.

Questions or Problems
If you have problems creating an account or logging in or questions regarding Messages, please contact Community Relations Director Traci Hale at 937-297-5332.
