LA GRANGE, Ky. (WAVE) - Students attending middle and high shcools in Oldham County will find the school day starting and ending 15 minutes later in the upcoming school year.
When the 2022/2023 school year begins in August, the school day for middle and high school students will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m.

Oldham County Schools says the adjustment of the school day is in response to a shortage of bus drivers which has caused buses to arrive late in in recent years.
