2020/2021 School Year Update

July 2, 2020

Dear OCS community,

As we head into the July 4th holiday weekend, I wanted to give you an update on reopening plans for Oldham County Schools. 

First, school districts in Kentucky don’t have to follow the same calendar, and there is flexibility on how to operate schools. You may be seeing on the news that some local districts are pushing back the start of school and are wondering if OCS will follow suit. We still plan on starting with in-person instruction on August 12. We will be ready to welcome students back into our buildings at that time. Of course, if the environment of the pandemic in our area changes between now and then, that could change, but we continue to press on with that August 12 date.

After reviewing different options, we plan to continue with a normal school week while following the expectations laid out in the Healthy at Schools guidance document to the best of our abilities and are not considering an A/B schedule that rotates students in and out of the school.

We have a committee developing a Virtual Learning Academy. Details on that and the rest of our reopening plan will be released later this month.

As a reminder, if you haven’t already filled out the parent survey that was sent out last week, please do so by July 5.  

Have a wonderful holiday weekend. 

Greg Schultz
