School Hours

Starting and dismissal times

In an effort to reduce the number of late buses arriving to school due to the shortage of bus drivers in recent years, Oldham County Schools will adjust the start and end times of our middle and high schools by 15 minutes.

Starting with the 2022-23 school year, middle and high schools will begin at 9:00 a.m. and dismiss at 4:00 p.m.
(BAHS hours will be 8:45 a.m. - 3:25 p.m.)

Elementary school start and end times are not affected. They remain 7:40 a.m. - 2:20 p.m.

Doors will open for middle and high school car riders to enter schools at 8:15 a.m.

Alarm Clock


7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (morning session)
or 11:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. (afternoon session)
