Weekly COVID-19 Update
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education provides each school district throughout the state five Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI) days that can be used during a school calendar year. Due to teachers, staff and sub shortages in our district, we will have exhausted our AMI days Thursday and Friday, January 27 & 28. Any further cancellations (other than weather related) could result in the loss of day(s) of breaks and/or day(s) added to the end of the school calendar. In an attempt to prevent this from happening, starting Tuesday, February 8, 2022, we are adding 10 minutes to the school day by restructuring our internal instructional time. By doing this every day for the remainder of the year, this would give us approximately two more school days of flex time to utilize if needed. This adjustment of the school day will NOT interfere with normal bus routes and times. Please click on the link to see how it will affect each school building. https://5il.co/14uzi

We continue to have an extremely high number of staff members who are getting sick, so we are still in a staffing crisis. As this situation continues, we cannot sustain the current pace throughout the whole week, with more and more staff falling ill. We will not have enough staff to properly supervise students during the school day by the end of this week. We will shut down on Thursday and Friday, January 27 and 28, during the school day, including Adventure Club and preschool. The district will be using our two remaining AMI days. . School offices will be open from 8-12. Central Office will remain open during regular business hours. Evening activities will continue as scheduled, as long as staffing is available. Any changes will be communicated through Spartan Alerts. Meals will again be provided these days.

Parents/Guardians Help Needed: One of our major goals in the Richmond R-XVI School District is to foster a climate that nurtures, challenges and inspires students to come to school daily. Everyone in our school community puts forth great effort to create an environment that encourages regular attendance. We know that over the past two years during the COVID pandemic, attendance has been interrupted due to positive cases and quarantining taking place via contract tracing. Consequently, our attendance has suffered and student learning has suffered as well. Please click on the link for the entire letter to families regarding attendance: https://5il.co/148br

Reduction in Required Quarantines: Last week, the Ray County Health Department shared with us that they will allow for new COVID-19 protocols to align with updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As we prepare to return to school tomorrow, we wanted to provide an update on new expectations for staying home when individuals in our school community test positive for COVID-19 or are exposed to a positive person.
