    Districts to Continue Remote Learning for Students

    Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and for the ongoing safety of students, staff and the community at-large, area school superintendents have conferred, collaborated and come to the difficult decision to keep schools closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. 

    This decision follows recommendations from local health departments and is in collaboration with government officials. District superintendents will continue to follow the guidance of these experts as decisions are made on end-of-year events in the best interest of the health and safety of district students, staff, and communities. 

    “These are unprecedented times for communities, and for education. The safety of all students and staff remains uppermost in our minds. With the decision to physically close all schools until the end of the year, we are working to assure that safety,” said Dr. Charles J. Pearson, Normandy Superintendent of Schools. “I want to thank our students, teachers, staff, and families for their patience and cooperation during this challenging period in our lives. We will get through this and working together will be the key.” 

    Normandy has been providing free Grab & Go meals to any student within the footprint, and plans to continue this offering until the end of May (the original end of the school year). The district is also finalizing plans for its next distribution of Chromebooks for students to continue learning remotely. Updated information on the meal and Chromebook distribution will be shared once plans are finalized. 

    “This is our commitment — remote learning will continue for all students, whether we are working with technology or with printed packets,” Dr. Pearson continued. “We will continue to provide meals to families and students in need as safely as possible. NSC will continue to collaborate with all community partners to meet the needs of students and families in the 24:1."

    No decisions have been made regarding specific end-of-year activities such as prom or graduation. District staff are working with health and government officials to determine if these events will occur or held at a later date. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is working to determine how districts will handle summer school. Families will be notified once decisions have been made regarding these matters.
