SPRING BREAK  -  NO SCHOOL

April 12 Full-time In-person Instruction Resumes

March 5, 2021

Dear OCS Community,

As we look at the current state of Covid-19 transmission in our community, there has been a substantial decrease in Oldham County's 7-day average since we returned to in-person instruction on January 19. We had previously announced our A/B schedule for middle and high would continue through spring break, and with these declining numbers, we feel it is time to transition from the A/B schedule to full-time instruction at all levels when we return from that break.

Therefore, beginning Monday April 12, we will do away with the A/B schedule and all middle and high students who have selected in-person instruction will attend school 5 days a week.

This plan has endorsement from the Oldham County Health Department and we will continue to follow Kentucky’s Healthy at School Guidelines, including temperature checks, masks, and social distancing to the best extent possible. With increased attendance, distancing and classroom configurations will fluctuate. We plan to utilize additional rooms and spaces during lunch to ensure 6 foot distancing of students. Seating charts and attendance rosters (buses, classrooms and mealtimes) will be maintained to assist with contact tracing if necessary.

For those who have selected VLA, that program will continue through the end of the school year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your child’s school.

In order to continue a successful school year, we ask that everyone adhere to best practices outside of school to continue to slow the spread of Covid-19. We again thank you for your support and flexibility.

Respectfully,

Greg Schultz
Superintendent

Oldham County Schools AB Schedule LogoFAQs

A: The purpose of the A/B schedule is to reduce the number of students in classrooms and the school building at once. Elementary school classrooms have already been reduced by enrollment in the VLA and therefore can return to in-person on their regular schedule. However, this may change as the year continues. If our number of in-person elementary students increases, we may need to introduce an A/B schedule at the elementary as well.

A: We are on the A/B schedule for middle and high school until further notice. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 numbers daily and base our decisions on data trends. You will be notified if there will be changes to the A/B schedule.

A: Students with disabilities will continue to receive special education services on the A/B schedule. On the days students attend school in person, they will receive services in person according to their IEP. On days they are working from home, support will be included in the form of accommodated/ modified activities that incorporate the student's specific specially designed instruction and supplementary aids and services as outlined in the IEP.

A: Students with 504 plans will continue to receive their accommodations on the A/B schedule. On days they are working from home, accommodations will be embedded in the activities when appropriate for independent work tasks.

A: Students will have the opportunity to take food home to cover the days they are not at school.

A: This will reduce the number of people who students and staff encounter daily. We will have fewer students on buses, more room to spread out in the classrooms, cafeteria, other areas in the building, and outdoors. Fewer cars in the drop-off and pick-up line and quicker temperature checks upon arrival to school.

A: High school and middle school students in the same Infinite Campus “household” will be assigned to the same “A” or “B” schedule regardless of the students’ last names. We will prioritize keeping families together in the same group.

A: Not until the next trimester which starts on November 23. VLA is a trimester by trimester commitment. The open enrollment period for the second trimester will be October 12 - November 1. 

A: This will lessen the number of students riding the bus each day. We suggest you periodically check e-Link for adjustments to your child's pick-up or drop-off time.

A: On in-person days, attendance will be taken and reported as normal in Infinite Campus.

On home learning days, participation will be substituted for traditional attendance. Participation credit can be determined in the following ways:

Assignments submitted digitally on a home learning day (submissions via Google Classroom, Flipgrid, etc.)

Assignments submitted the next day upon return to school

A: Teachers will provide appropriate independent assignments for students to work on for days when they are not in the classroom. Students should complete approximately 40 minutes of independent work for each class on home learning days. We recommend that you designate independent work time for each class as it occurs in the student’s schedule. For example, if a student has math class at 8:45 and starts science at 9:45 while at school, independent work could be accomplished at those designated times at home.  

A: On days when students are in-person, they will attend class at Arvin on a modified schedule which will be shared on their website. Please check the Arvin Center’s website often.

On days when students are learning at home, teachers will utilize Google Classroom to share videos, assignments, or activities. This will be asynchronous instruction with required tasks assigned.

All VLA students will be attending Arvin classes via Live stream. VLA students will attend class virtually on the A/B day they are assigned by the district.

A: No, unfortunately we can't allow changes. An algorithm in Infinite Campus was used to split class sizes as evenly as possible. In order to offer in-person classes, we must reduce class size, and allowing changes could tip the scales.
