Survey Reminder

We are seeking feedback from the community, including families, residents, and staff, in an upcoming survey. KSD asks the community to complete the survey now, through Wednesday, January 20, 2021. Link www.kirkwoodschools.org/survey

It's important that all voices in our community are heard. Please share this link with others, even if they do not have students in Kirkwood schools.

Reminder: School Schedules Remain the Same

We have received several emails inquiring about any schedule change for our learning model. Prior to Winter Break, we committed to maintaining the current schedule for the rest of the school year, including virtual Fridays for all students. We worked as hard as possible to strike a balance between safely engaging our students in person while keeping our students and staff safe. We also worked to be deliberate in our decision-making so we don't put students and parents on a "yo-yo" from in person to virtual. This will continue to guide our decision making.

At this time, we are watching the post-holiday season numbers closely. The current context in St. Louis County and the emergence of a new, more contagious version of the virus are complicating the situation. However, with news of a vaccine, a window of opportunity to expand our in person engagement may present itself as we move toward springtime.

If an opportunity to change the current learning model presents itself to our schools, a full engagement of our Board of Education, staff, and families would be held prior to any decision.
