KCPS is highly concerned about the ongoing health and safety needs of our staff, students, families, and community at large during the COVID-19 pandemic. We value your service to the district. KCPS is constantly reviewing and considering the most up- to- date guidance from the Kansas City Health Department (KCHD), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),World Health Organization (WHO), Children’s Mercy Hospital (CMH) and other local community health partners, as well as local, state, and federal governments as to safe procedures and best practices for reopening school/work sites. Our school Re-entry Plan takes into account guidance from the CDC, KCHD, CMH, city mandates under Mayor Lucas's Emergency Order, and re-entry practices in our area, as well as educational guidance from the Missouri State School Board Association (MSBA) and other trusted educational organizations at local, state, and federal levels.

The information shared in these Staff FAQs is fluid and may be updated to reflect the latest health and safety guidance and recommendations. You are encouraged to check back regularly to the Staff FAQs as information will be frequently updated due to evolving guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic situation. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns regarding the KCPS Re-entry Plan or KCPS’s response to COVID-19 please contact Sara Williams, KCPS HR COVID-19 Coordinator, at covidcoordinator@kcpublicschools.org or 816-418-7536.

KCPS will begin the school year in a Distance Learning instructional model and also offer a Virtual Learning option. When it is safe for KCPS to move to a Blended or In-Person model, staff will be notified and given ample time to ready themselves for that transition. For all instructional models, the expectation is that staff will work their regularly scheduled work hours.
