Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
July 29, 2021:
Yesterday, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas issued an emergency public health order requiring masks at all times indoors. This order impacts all individuals over the age of 5, regardless of vaccination status. As a result, beginning Monday, August 2, masks will be required for all students, staff and visitors indoors at all NKC Schools sites. This includes all individuals; those who have received the vaccine and those who have not.
Please plan to send your child to school each day with a mask to wear indoors. A back-up mask is also highly recommended. Additionally, masks are still required on buses at all times due to a federal mandate.
Based on the advice of national and local health professionals, we are also recommending that all individuals 12 years or older consider receiving the vaccination as soon as possible. Click here for a list of convenient vaccination opportunities in our area.
