Miles of Smiles at LEAD
Miles of Smiles, a program of Level Up Kids, provides free dental care to children in the Northland who do not have access to oral health services. The dental care will be provided to students at LEAD during the school day at Hopewell Elementary on February 7th – February 28th!
All care is provided by a licensed dentist and assistants and all patients receive a comprehensive exam, cleaning and x-rays. Transportation will be provided to LEAD students to and from Hopewell Elementary.
Please register ASAP if you would like your student to be seen during the school day. We highly encourage online registration, which is quick, easy and convenient! You can register right from your phone!
Please contact Karen Schaff (816-359-6175) or Betsy Chociej (816-359-6417) if you have any questions or need help registering your student.
A reminder that when dangerous weather, temperatures or road conditions make it unsafe for students to get to school, we will call an AMI distance learning day.
The state has allocated five AMI (alternative methods of instruction) distance learning days, which means that on inclement weather days, all students will learn from home from 9 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. On the sixth bad-weather day, we will have a good old-fashioned snow day with no school.
In the event of an AMI day, students will follow the schedule below. Please remember that participation in classes via Teams is highly encouraged but not mandated. At the very least, students should log into Summit and get as much work done as they can. Facilitators can approve PFA's to be done from home on AMI days. CT teachers, however, will not approve PFA's on AMI days.

Important Information for NCC Students
Please note that NCC follows the schedule of the Platte County School District including school closures for inclement weather. If the Platte County School District closes due to poor road conditions, excessive snow, or frigid temperatures, NCC will not be in session. NCC will communicate through email, Facebook, Twitter and the NCC website about closures. For the 22-23 school year, NCC will follow the PCR-3 plans shown below:
· Plan A (No School and No Remote Learning)
· Plan B (No School and No Remote Learning)
· Plan C (Inclement Weather Virtual Learning Day)
It is likely that we will not implement Plan C inclement weather days (no school with remote virtual learning) until we reach a threshold that would push the school year past four inclement weather days. We will always communicate what each day is via our website, email, Facebook, and Twitter.
