Trailwoods Elementary School, 6210 East 17th Street, began distance learning Tuesday after multiple positive COVID-19 cases at the K-6 school, according to a school district spokesperson.
All other students at Wheatley Elementary, 2415 Agnes Avenue, are able to attend school.
A third school, Hartman Elementary, has two classrooms of students that began distance learning last week because of COVID-19 cases, the spokesperson said.
All other students can attend school in the building at 8111 Oak Street.
A KCPS spokesperson released the following statement:
“The quarantines in three of our elementary schools reflect current community spread. As we’re following health department guidance for quarantines and continuing to practice our health and safety protocols, we continue to ask for community support in helping prevent spread. Whether through masking and/or getting the vaccine, both will help stop the spread in our community and subsequently in our schools as well. Our students, staff and families have been thoughtful, collaborative and supportive throughout this whole pandemic. We are excited to finish our year strong and healthy with the support of our community.”
