This entire plan and all phases will be updated and changed as more information becomes available and guidelines are released from the USDA, DESE, CDC, Health Department, MSBA, etc.

2020-2021 School Year

The COVID-19 pandemic is a national crisis that poses a serious health risk for everyone. With this in mind, we have been moving forward with a phased back-to-school plan for the 2020-2021 year. Based on KCMO Covid-19 transmission rates, KCPS COVID-19 school safety mitigation strategies and discussions and planning sessions with our district community, KCPS plans to phase in return in a hybrid model of learning, beginning March 15.

Child Nutrition Services developed the following services model options and provided building principals with recommendations based on size, enrollment, floor plan, café size, etc. Using those recommendations, each building leader selected the appropriate model for their site.
