KCR-1 School District Moving to Virtual Learning on November 10

Knox County, Missouri – November 6, 2020 – The following messages were sent out from the Knox County R-1 Scool District Friday morning explaining why classes will be held virtually beginning Tuesday, November 10 and giving instructions for meal delivery beginning the same day.

Message About Virtual Learning

This is the Knox County R-I School District with an important message.  We know that the best education for our students occurs face to face, however due to the increasing number of staff impacted by this pandemic and the shortage of people to cover them, we will have to transition to Virtual learning for next week.  Monday will be a no school day to allow everyone to prepare for the virtual setting.  We will also need Monday to make preparations for meal delivery so we will not have meals on Monday.  Meal delivery will start on Tuesday.  More information will be sent out about meals shortly.  We hope to get everyone back to face to face instruction as soon as possible.  Please be cautious and follow CDC guidelines.

Message About Meal Delivery

This is the Knox County R-I School District with important information about meal delivery.  All students between the ages of 1 and 18 are eligible for free meals.  Much like this past spring, we will package lunch and breakfast and deliver them through our bus routes.  If you want your students to receive meals you will need to fill out the survey at the link below by Sunday, November 8 at 5:00 p.m.  There will be ABSOLUTELY no changes to the delivery location unless it is a permanent change.  Meals will be delivered everyday unless you cancel delivery permanently.  Please leave a tote, cooler, chair, table etc. to put the meals in/on if there is not a porch or solid surface to leave them on.  Also, please make sure your pets are friendly to our delivery people. Meals will start on Tuesday, November 10.  You will receive lunch for that day and breakfast for the next day between 11:00
a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
