The Oldham County Board of Education annually adopts a school year calendar setting the days that district schools will be in session for the following year. The school year calendar adopted by the Oldham County Board of Education also includes:

  • Official holidays when school will not be in session;
  • Other days when school will not be in session, such as Fall, Winter, and Spring breaks;
  • Any additional days during the school year requiring that school will not be in session, such as teacher professional development days and teacher work days.

2020-21 OCS School Year Calendar   


  • Approved July 27, 2020:  The OCBE approved moving the start date for students to Monday, August 24 (August 31 for OC Preschool). Major breaks will remain the same. The last day for students, barring any make-up days, will be June 2.
  • Approved January 25, 2021:  The OCBE approved changes to the February school calendar, in order to accommodate the administration of the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to OCS teachers and staff. The calendar adjustment also maximizes the number of in-person instructional days in February. February’s Teacher Work Day has been moved from Friday, February 12 to Friday, February 19. This will allow for administration of the vaccine on the 19th and will be a non-instructional day for students. Vaccines will also need to be administered the following Friday, February 26. Friday, February 12 will become a B day for middle and high students.  A/B Calendar
