Our first priority is the safety of our students. This year, there has been increased usage and numerous health emergencies stemming from the use of vapes, especially from those containing illegal drugs. Vaporizers/e-cigarettes come in all different shapes and sizes and can contain tobacco and/or various forms of synthetic cannabinoids.
To deter student use of vapes and the harmful impacts of such, each high school has been equipped with a number of Halo Smart Sensors. These sensors detect the use of vaporizing products and immediately alert administrators in the building via email and text message.
To expand on existing school resources and close the gap in mental health services, we have partnered with the Oldham County Health Department and the Oldham County Fiscal Court to offer Care Solace. Care Solace provides an anonymous and confidential pathway for students, families, faculty, and staff to connect with mental health services. This program is being paid for with grants through Oldham County Fiscal Court and OCHD. This program is completely voluntary.
Each year, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation honors students across the nation whose scores are the highest in the PSAT/NMSQT test taken in the fall of their junior year. This year, nine students from Oldham County Schools have been named 2023 National Merit Semifinalists.
Please review the most updated Oldham County Schools attendance policy as of July 1, 2022.
The federal government allowed schools to offer free meals to all students during the pandemic, but Congress did not extend this benefit for next school year. Families that are eligible for free or reduced-price meals must apply to receive them, and all other students must pay full price for their meals.
