Covid-19 Vaccination Event at RHS
The Raytown C-2 School District is partnering with the Jackson County Health Department (JACOHD) to host onsite COVID-19 vaccine clinics for Raytown C-2 students aged 16 and older. These clinics are 100% voluntary and, at this time, vaccinations are not required for any Raytown C-2 student.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting vaccinated is one of many steps you can take to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. Other steps, like masks and social distancing, help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others. Together, COVID-19 vaccination and following CDC’s recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.
The clinics will offer the Pfizer vaccine, which requires two doses, the second dose will be scheduled three weeks after the first. The Health Department will operate the clinics at Raytown High School with the assistance of community health partners.

Raytown High School COVID-19 InformationWe all play a role in preventing the spread of COVID-19. You can help by reinforcing hand hygiene and promoting mask compliance as the school year progresses. It is critical for students/staff to stay home when they have symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are someone who suffers from regular seasonal allergies. Individuals who are sick should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from local healthcare providers. Individuals who need medical care should call their medical provider to report their illness prior to seeking care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital. Staff and students exhibiting flu-like symptoms are asked to stay home and contact the Jackson County Health Department or Kansas City Health Department (the department you call is determined by your home address) for further instructions.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to the regular seasonal influenza and include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Some people with COVID-19 have reported additional symptoms, such as a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. In some situations, the virus can develop into pneumonia. Staff and families of students who are ill should notify the office to report any absence.
Currently, we have 0 active cases of COVID-19 at Raytown High School. This number includes both new and continuing cases as cases are active for 10 days after symptom onset or a positive COVID-19 test.
You may view our district’s COVID-19 Dashboard for more information.
Thank you for your partnership as we work to keep our students and staff healthy.
Technology Support for Students In Person
As we try to mitigate risk, I have created a plan to support students with technology needs.
Virtual students will be supported as they are now.
- They will call or email Technology Student Support at (816) 268-7172 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Technology staff can help troubleshoot and also schedule them for a swap if needed.
In-person students with technology issues will be supported in the following manner:
- On their device, a student can fill out a "student device incident form" which will generate an email alert for Joe directly.
- This form can be found on their Student Resources page of Raytown Schools
- If a student's device will not work, the student's teacher can then email Joe.
- When available, Joe will visit the student's classroom to retrieve the laptop and in turn supply a Loaner device.
- Once the laptop is fixed, I will deliver it back to the student and retrieve the Loaner device.
