CULTURE CORNER

This year during Falcon Time, once per month, our building has been engaging in conversations and activities around the Portrait of a Graduate competencies. So far, we’ve learned about Learner’s Mindset and Empathy. This month we will be diving into Collaboration. During these modules, we spend time diving into what these competencies are, how they are defined by our POG and create opportunities for our students to become more familiar with our Portrait of a Graduate work.

NKCSD DISTRICT COMMUNICATION

Mask Requirement Communication on 7.29.21

NKC Schools families and staff:


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.


If your child is currently attending one of our year-round schools, summer Adventure Club programming or other indoor activities, please plan to send them 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.


NKC Schools remains in close contact with our partners at both the Clay County and Kansas City Health Departments just as we’ve been all summer. We will continue to collaborate with local health partners to determine any other changes to COVID-19 mitigation practices before the school year begins August 23. We will also continue to provide updates and regular communication to you in this time where adaptability is required. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Thank you for your partnership and flexibility as we continue to monitor the changing situations around us and adjust our practices to best serve all students, staff and families.
