    Subject: Inclement Weather Plans for 2022-2023

    As we look forward to fall, it is time to share a few updates regarding North Kansas City Schools’ inclement weather plans for this 2022-2023 school year. Our goal, as always, is to ensure the safety of all during inclement weather events while minimizing disruption to students’ learning.

    The first three inclement weather days this year will be traditional “snow days” with no in-person or virtual classes. Students will not be expected to log in. Optional enrichment activities will be accessible online should your family wish to continue learning from home. These days may be required to be made up.

    Beginning with the fourth inclement weather day, if needed, we will shift to virtual learning. Similar to last school year, all students will be expected to log in and continue learning online. Teachers will work from home to support student learning. These days would not be required to be made up by students.

    Please read more about virtual learning expectations for students, athletics and activities, Adventure Club on our district website at

    In the case of a change to normal school operation due to inclement weather, families and staff will be notified as soon as possible in several ways. These channels include the district website; email, phone and optional text messages; and announcements on social media, radio and TV.

    To prepare for potential weather, we encourage you to:

    ● Opt in to receive text messages from your student’s school and the district. Text YES to 67587.

    ● Download the VersaTrans MyStop app to track your child’s bus in wintry conditions.

    ● Ensure your contact information is up to date with your child’s school.
