Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
UPDATE (March 21, 2020):
North Kansas City Schools will be closed through Friday, April 24.
Per Mayor Quinton Lucas’s announced "Stay at Home" order earlier this afternoon, our return to in-person instruction has been delayed. At this time, our plan is to welcome students back to school on Monday, April 27. This order does not impact our plans to deliver meals to students. Read the full announcement from the Cooperating School Districts of Greater Kansas City.
This page will continue to be updated as necessary with important information and any additional details. Questions and concerns can be directed to the district's Let's Talk site under the "Health Services" button.
As this is the first time we’ve implemented e-learning, food distribution and collaborative work in a virtual environment, we’d love to hear some feedback from you as to how things are going! Even in times of uncertainty, our district is focused on continual improvement and growth. Your input is valuable.
North Kansas City Schools is closely monitoring information regarding the global spread of the coronavirus and proactively working with our local health agencies to develop a plan of action.
