Communication about COVID-19 cases
The Raymore-Peculiar School District commits to share information of each positive COVID-19 case among students and staff within 24 hours of being notified by the Cass County Health Department. (These reports occur when school is in session.)
Additionally, we also send out classroom-specific, or activity-specific, emails if the health department has requested classroom seating charts, class rosters, team or activity rosters, or bus ridership lists as part of contact tracing related to a positive case involving someone who is not an employee or student. In those instances, the District will notify the impacted group that some individuals may be contacted by the CCHD. The school district, in collaboration with the health department, will notify parents, students and staff for the need to quarantine under these circumstances.
The number of active positive cases reported includes students and staff testing positive who have been in school anytime 48 hours prior to the onset of symptoms being exhibited or 48 hours prior to a positive test if asymptomatic.
After an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 completes the necessary protocols to return to school or work as outlined by the health department and is therefore considered recovered, they are removed from the totals listed below as they are no longer considered an active case.
The District has implemented measures to minimize the risk. However, anytime we are in a public setting, we increase our risk of exposure.
REMINDER: If your student has been tested for COVID-19, please keep them home while you wait for the results.

We will make announcements through the same channels we use to communicate inclement weather closures. Please be sure your information is up-to-date in order to receive email, telephone calls, and/or text messages. Contact your child’s school if you need to provide an updated email address.
