Raymore-Peculiar School District Superintendent
As we continue to monitor the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want you to know that there is no higher priority than the health and safety of our students, employees, and the community.
As such, we’ve made the difficult decision to suspend in-person classes through Friday, April 3. Schooling decisions beyond that date will be made when more information about the spread of the virus is available.
-- This week (March 16-20), Ray-Pec schools are closed for Spring Break.
-- Monday, March 23: Staff will finalize preparations of virtual learning resources to share with students and families. (Students do not attend school March 23 through April 3.)
-- Tuesday, March 24: Students will begin remote learning activities. Your family will receive information via email from your child’s school on Monday. If you have not received email communication from your child’s school by Tuesday, March 24, please contact the school for further information.
-- Hard copy materials will be available at your child’s school starting on Tuesday, March 24, for families without internet access.
-- Scheduled school events, including extracurricular and athletic activities, and school-sponsored trips, are canceled until further notice. This includes practices, competitions, workouts, and off-season conditioning both on- and off-campus. We will advise when athletic and extracurricular activities may resume.
-- More information, including details about school activities, meals, and child care will be shared soon.
We are closely following guidelines from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Centers for Disease Control, and other local and national health organizations.
We recognize the hardship this places on our families, and we thank you for your support and patience as we work through this process. We’ll do everything we can to help our students and families through these changes.
