Plan of Action: Coronavirus (COVID 19)

Update:  11-17-2020

Good Evening OGR6 Families,

At this time the Oak Grove R-VI School District will not be changing the current quarantine guidelines set forth from the CDC. The State of Missouri said school districts do not have to quarantine close contacts to positive cases. Jackson County, in light of the increasing numbers in the surrounding area, has required the original quarantine guidelines to remain in place. The school board unanimously approved to continue the districts current quarantine protocols and there will be no changes at this time. 

* The district plan for 2nd semester, which starts on Monday, January 4th, 2021, is to continue with the current approved district calendar which is linked here. As of today we will continue with Monday virtual days (AMI) and 4 days of Face to Face instruction.  Families that wish to change their current plan of virtual instruction or face to face instruction will need to notify the district no later than 4:00pm, Tuesday, December 1st, 2020. There will be a form sent this week only if families wish to change their current learning plan at semester. Families that wish to continue with their current learning plan do not have to change anything or declare.

* In order to elevate email fatigue, the district and your student's building will only send COVID letters if your student is affected by a positive case. When cases arise in a building that do not affect your student, no letter will be sent to you. If you would like information as to the number of cases and quarantines in the district please refer to the district dashboard found here. The dashboard is updated weekly.
