As you may know, an Alternative to Traditional Graduation task force was created by Superintendent Schultz.  This task force conducted surveys, sought student-voice, consulted the OC Health Department, and received guidance from KDE and Gov. Beshear.  From this, a hybrid graduation proposal was presented to the OC Board on Thursday, May 13th and was officially approved. 

Thursday evening, the Oldham County Board of Education officially communicated that plan to you; therefore NOHS will host a hybrid graduation ceremony on our campus.  Based on this approved plan, you will have the opportunity to walk in your cap and gown for your family at a specific time.  This experience will be recorded and edited together into a full traditional graduation ceremony video for future viewing.  We know that this year will look different, but we are excited to offer you a unique Graduation experience.
