COVID-19 Protocols
The Grain Valley School District will continue to make COVID-19 testing available for students exhibiting one or more symptoms of the virus. This testing is conducted by the Grain Valley Health Services staff and is minimally invasive. Currently, testing is not available for asymptomatic cases.

Contact tracing and quarantine procedures for Covid-19 will be in effect for SOAR just like during the regular school year, but subject to change based on any new guidance from the Jackson County Health Department. If your child is sick or showing symptoms of COVID-19, please plan to keep them home from SOAR. If it is determined that your child was a close contact (exposure) to a positive case, school officials will notify you as soon as possible with instructions for quarantine and return to school protocols.

Because SOAR is a unique curriculum and varies by grade and class, students in quarantine will not have access to virtual learning (virtual instruction during quarantine will not be provided).

Transportation to and from Summer SOAR is the responsibility of the parent. District transportation services are not available. Please be on time when dropping off and picking up children from Summer SOAR. Students will be dropped off and picked up in the front of the building. When picking up students, parents will be directed to a numbered cone. 

Please ensure your child is at school on time each day. We have a fun and engaging program planned for them and want each child to begin their day on time. During the first two days of school students (1st-5th) will meet in the gym to find their class. Kindergarten students will meet in their classrooms.
