Reopening Plan

School Reopening Plan

UPDATED July 31: The first day of school has been changed to Tuesday, September 8. Students in grades 6-12 will begin the school year in the "hybrid" model described within the "Instructional Options" section of our school reopening plan listed below. Early childhood and elementary school students will be in person as previously planned.

Grain Valley Schools is committed to providing a choice for our families. The safety of our students and staff is our priority, so we have put new procedures in place to protect everyone in our schools and minimize the risk of exposure. However, the risk of exposure increases any time we enter a public setting, including a school.

The School Reopening Plan was developed using guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Missouri School Boards Association, and the Jackson County Health Department, along with input from families and staff through surveys and planning. We hope this information helps guide each family to make decisions that best suits their unique situation.
