It is the third positive case the district has announced this school year, which began in late August with the return of in-person instruction for the first time since March.
“The beginning of the school year has gone well thanks to our students, staff and families committing to follow the health and cleaning protocols we established,” district Community Relations Director Traci Hale said in an email to the Dayton Daily News.
“We remain committed to providing face-to-face educational opportunities for our students and know this is only possible with the support of the Oakwood schools community,” she added.
The individual who tested positive will be cleared to return to school if they complete the required quarantine, being fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication, and seeing an improvement in symptoms, according to the school district.
Last month an Oakwood High School staff member tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the district.
That result followed positive tests from one Oakwood High School girls' tennis team.
