Snow Days Become Remote Learning Days in 2020-2021
The remote instruction systems developed this year by MRH have created a convenient and timely opportunity for the District to continue educating students when the weather turns foul. Remote learning in place of snow days will prevent an extension of school into mid-June of 2021. This favorable circumstance is important in light of a Missouri school calendar law which effectively has already pushed the final day of school into the second week of June for the 2020-2021 academic year. Additionally, there is significant construction work underway now and continuing for the next couple of years at all MRH buildings. We are attempting to preserve the strict summer 2021 timetables which were established following voter passage of Proposition E.
For the remainder of 2020-2021 school year, any inclement weather falling on a school calendar day will be a virtual learning day. Individual school buildings will communicate expectations for students on such days.
If students are on site and weather conditions worsen as a day progresses , MRH may decide to close early. On some days, it may become necessary to begin on-site classes later than the scheduled start time. In all cases, announcements will be made via the usual channels:
Direct phone calls and emails to families
Announcements on local news media: KMOX AM 1120, KTVI TV Channel 2, KMOV TV Channel 4, KSDK TV Channel 5 and KPLR TV Channel 11
We thank you for your continued support of the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District.
