Important Dates UPDATE

DEPLOYMENT: Deployment has been rescheduled based on the Board of Education’s recent announcement. Please pick up your child’s third quarter materials February 4th  or 5th between 9 am and 5pm.

GRADES: Grades  for second quarter will be finalized January 25th. Please reach out to your child’s teacher for more information.


School Board Decision

The KCKPS Board of Education approved a recommendation by the administration to postpone the return to in-person instruction until April 5th. The decision was made during the regular school board meeting on Tuesday, December 1st.

The decision to postpone in-person instruction was driven by the recent increase in positive COVID-19 rates in Wyandotte County. Presented with three options, the board voted to change their earlier decision to a phased in hybrid learning model with students returning on January 19th.  Tuesday’s night vote means the district will now be following the Option A Plan.

Side by Side Tutoring

Parents, you shared you need a time in the evening to be able to reach out to teachers in order to assist you and your child with remote learning. We listened!

Every Monday through Thursday from 6:30 – 7:30 pm, you can reach out to a teacher and sit “side by side” with your child to learn and experience success with them! 

Contact your child’s teachers or SeeSaw account for Zoom links.


Technology Solutions

As we move further into our 2020-21 school year, we are excited to continue growing with the new remote-learning system. Every day we learn about new triumphs and new struggles, and through it all we know that we’re all in this together.

Whether in the classroom or in our homes, adjusting to the new technology can be a bit tricky. We’ve compiled a collection of simple, step-by-step problem solving strategies to help maneuver through some of the most common technological issues you might face. Before calling in to the school, give a look through these troubleshooting ideas, and give a few a try.
