Effective April 3, 2017, the KHSAA will have new office hours, being open 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET. Logistical and traffic issues (both current and anticipated) surrounding the opening of the new Frederick Douglass High School have created this necessity. We appreciate the understanding of our membership and various constituencies.
