OLDHAM COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE) – Returning to in-person learning is being pushed back in Oldham County.

Oldham County Schools superintendent Greg Schultz released a statement Thursday saying “a successful return to in-person instruction is unlikely on Jan. 11.”

Schultz said the district is looking at delaying in-person instruction for at least a week past Jan. 11 due to the high number of coronavirus cases.

“We will continue to review the numbers with the local health department on a weekly basis and make a determination on returning to in-person attendance no later than Thursday evening for the following week,” Schultz wrote.

He continued saying, “While the majority of students, parents, and staff want to be back in person, we must do so in a manner that has risk mitigation at its core and offers a reasonable chance at success.”
