COVID-19 Data

Information about COVID-19 positive cases

  • Symptomatic: Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate at home for 5 days after symptom onset.
  • Asymptomatic: Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate at home for 5 days after the positive test result.
  • Students/staff can return to school/work after 5 days and wear a mask for 5 additional days. However, people should stay home as they would with any other type of communicable illness until symptoms are improving. Individuals with a fever should remain in isolation until the fever resolves.

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, bus, or activity notification emails. 

Contact tracing

If a positive case is reported to us about a student in a classroom/extracurricular activity, the parents of students in that entire classroom/activity will be informed via email about the potential of exposure. Parents will be urged to monitor their children for symptoms and other suggested actions by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). 

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, 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. 

Face coverings

  • Wearing of face coverings in district facilities is recommended, but not required.
  • Face coverings are required on school buses (federal transportation mandate).
  • Because there is not currently an option for children under the age of 5 to be vaccinated, parents of students at Shull Early Learning Center should be aware that children will be in an environment where some people may be masked and others may not.
