Instructional Plan for 2021-2022 School Year to Parents (3-5-2021).pdf 

After gathering input from parent surveys, staff surveys, board members, administrators, health professionals, and current COVID numbers, the district has determined not to offer Oak Grove Virtual Instruction for the 2021-2022 school year. Students wishing to enroll virtually will be directed to Launch or other MOCAP providers. The district feels strongly that we can serve our students and community best by face to face, in person instruction. Our goal is to provide a high quality, top rated instructional model, and to reduce and eliminate the learning gaps that have undoubtedly occurred in the past year. While no one plan is ideal for everyone, the Oak Grove R-VI staff and family want to provide the very best education possible for all our students. 

Face to face instruction will be 5 days per week in a traditional format. There will be no AMI days on snow days and students participating in extra or co-curricular activities will be required to attend face to face instruction. There will be no split or partial virtual schedules offered. 

Please remember, this plan, is subject to change before the anticipated first day of school on Monday, August 23, 2021. We will continue to monitor current health data, government recommendations, and the input from all stakeholders in the Oak Grove community. 

Thank you

Oak Grove R-VI School District

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.
