*UPDATE* Grain Valley Schools closed through May 20
Posted on 04/16/2020
Grain Valley Schools Families and Staff,

Governor Parson has ordered school buildings closed, but for learning opportunities to continue, through the rest of this school year. The last day of school in Grain Valley is May 20. Our principals and teachers will continue to update families with instructional updates each week through May 20.

We are in our fourth week of supporting flexible learning for students and families and we have 4 ½ more weeks after this one. We commend our families for their patience with us as our teachers and leaders work to support learning for students at home. This is not anyone’s preferred way to do school but it is our reality at this time and together we will get through it.

Please do not hesitate to email your child’s teacher, school counselor, or school or district administrator with any questions or feedback. It is our goal to make the most of a very challenging situation.

All school district facilities remain closed for student or community use for the duration of the school closure. All activities and practices are canceled during the school closure.

Our Valley Kids before and after school program remains closed. However, we are exploring the possibility of providing daycare for children of parents and guardians in the medical professions and other first responders in our community. These families should email us at news@gvr5.net if this applies to your family and you need assistance.

We continue to provide weekday lunches, with some food for the following morning, for any student who needs it. Families may enroll for this program under the COVID-19 tab on our district’s website.

Other changes this spring include the cancellation of state testing (MAP and End Of Course exams) and the April election for school board members and the school bond issue ballot measure has been moved to June 2 by executive order of Governor Mike Parsons.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or a member of our team with a need for help with a challenge you are facing. We are a part of a strong community and will work to make the right connection to help with your situation.

Sincerely,

Marc Snow, Superintendent of Schools
