Free meals for 2021/2022 School Lunch lets grow healthy

We are excited to announce for the 2021/2022 school year, Oldham County Schools will be able to serve meals free of charge to all students.

Each student may receive one complete breakfast and lunch at no cost to them. Second meals, extra items, and snacks are not free. School Food Service is a Child Nutrition Program that is funded by the USDA. Therefore, only children may receive meals at no cost. All adult meals must be paid for. No charging of any meals or items for adults or students will be allowed. 

Mask Policy Update OCS Mask Policy Update

Based on the latest information released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday July, 9th 2021, staff and students who are fully vaccinated will not be required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors at all OCS buildings and properties.  It is recommended that staff and students who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear masks while indoors, and outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained.  All staff and students who wish to continue to wear masks may do so. 

Students and staff should observe social distancing when and where appropriate and feasible.  However we understand that this is not feasible in all situations.  Examples include, but are not limited to lunch, seat time, and other stationary times throughout the day.  No student or staff member should be asked if they are vaccinated.  Whether an individual has been vaccinated is a personal decision that each student and staff will make on their own.  Also, no student or staff member should be harassed, belittled or teased for wearing or not wearing a mask while on school grounds.

Further guidance is expected from the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Department of Public Health, but until then, this update reflects the district’s practice concerning wearing of masks on school property.
