LSR7 Roadmap to Reopening

2020-21 Reopening Overview

As the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District continues through the 2020-21 school year, we are committed to keeping our families, staff, students, and community members informed.

The global coronavirus is an unprecedented event in our community. As we prepare multiple action plans to help our school district prepare for the uncertainties that lie ahead, our goals will remain to prioritize health and safety for our students, staff and community while ensuring our students have access to high-quality educational experiences.

This web page will serve as a home for information and updates related to COVID-19's impact on our schools.
