OCS MS & HS to continue NTI until January 4, 2021Governor Beshear made some important announcements last week that impact Kentucky schools. Unlike past requests, which have been recommendations, the governor has signed an executive order and we are bound legally to comply.

The order states that middle and high schools must remain virtual until January 4 (On the OCS calendar, January 4 is a scheduled teacher work day, with students returning on January 5). Elementary and Preschool students may return on December 7 IF Oldham County is not in the red zone (red zone means the county has 25 or more average daily cases per 100,000 population). This incident rate map can be found at

We are still allowed to bring in small groups for specialized instruction, as we have been doing during our periods of NTI.

Per KHSAA regulations, OCS will pause all winter sports and extra-curricular activities until Monday, December 14.  Fall sports can continue post-season play only at this time.

We will continue with our emergency feeding schedule. Please refer to our website or Facebook page for more information.

We still ask that you call the school if your child tests positive for COVID-19 or is placed in quarantine. We are required to report these numbers to the state and will continue to post the number of COVID-19 positive students and staff on our website. 

Virus mitigation efforts require the support of our entire state. Please continue to practice social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitization. When all Kentuckians respond united, we are more likely to quickly decrease the spread of COVID-19 and resume in-person instruction as quickly as possible.
