    Decision-Making Criteria Updates

    As local health departments updated their COVID-19 guidance and recommendations for schools, North Kansas City Schools had need to do the same. A committee with representatives from all stakeholder groups (parents, students, teachers, staff, community and the Board of Education) came together on Thursday, October 15 to study more sophisticated and current information and revise our original decision-making criteria. Read more for an update on the committee's work.

    As we make plans for our return to school, NKC Schools has created several resources for our families, staff and community members. Visit the links on the left for each topic, or click here to see all resources, including translations into several languages.

Clay County Public Health Community Recovery Plan

  • Clay County is currently going through the slow and steady process of recovery out of the stay-at-home orders that expired on May 3. 

    Throughout recovery, it is incredibly important that every individual and business remember these four Recovery Essentials that will help prevent the spread of disease and protect our community:

    1. High-risk persons should continue to stay home except for essential activities. Anyone who is sick should also stay at home.
    2. Wear a face mask/covering when interacting with others outside your home.
    3. Always maintain physical distancing (six feet) from anyone you do not live with.
    4. Maintain the highest levels of cleaning and hygiene.


    The goal is to not return to a stay-at-home order, however, if at any time COVID-19 disease rates demonstrate the need to return to those measures, the public health order will be amended.
