Hello Falcon Families!

Earlier this week, I shared a document that lists all of the R7OL teacher’s schedules and meeting codes. The goal with this is to help our R7OL families navigate the many different teacher schedules. Also, I have included another copy of the Hybrid in-person revised schedule to help with class times (see below).

We appreciate the support you are providing your child while he/she continues to adapt to online learning. We recognize that this format can be challenging and even overwhelming at times for our students. As a school, we are committed to continuing to troubleshoot and looking at how the needs of all learners can be best met this year.

School Pictures

R7 Online Academy students will have two opportunities to have their school pictures and yearbook photo taken. Students will be socially-distanced as much as possible and will remove their masks prior to their picture. Students may come to SLMS on Wednesday, October 14 between 8:00-11:00 am or on Thursday, October 15 between 2:45-4:00pm. Please check in at the front office upon arrival.

Please sign up for a time slot within your PowerSchool Account by following the instructions below.

  1. Sign in to PowerSchool
  2. Click on Conference Scheduling
  3. Select the date and time for your appointment. Please click on the gray button in the upper left hand corner that says 'Next Selection' to navigate between all of the date options

Again, we hope you will schedule a time for your student to have his or her picture taken. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Stacy Patton, 816-986-1384 or

All-School Magazine Fundraiser Sale Benefits All SLMS Students

The Magazine Sale has been a part of SLMS since we opened our doors more than 20 years ago. However, with the unique start to the school year, we are forgoing our only fundraiser, the Magazine Sale, as we traditionally know it. Parents and friends are still welcome to renew current magazine subscriptions or purchase new magazines through our school using the link and code below. Our school still receives a portion of the profits; however, there will not be any prizes, homeroom competitions, or recognitions.

Please use the website with SLMS code: 2488427 for renewals or click the link above.
