Raytown C-2 School District Closed (March 23 - April 24)
As a result of this order, the Raytown C-2 School District will be closed March 23 through April 24. The Mayor’s order allows school districts, “to continue the important work they are doing to feed children and provide academic opportunities.”
During this time, all district programs and activities - including Great Expectations Before and After School Care, the Raytown Schools Wellness Center, athletics, fine arts programs, and clubs - are canceled through April 24. Families are encouraged to stay connected to this page for any district-related events that might be affected in the coming weeks. We are receiving questions from families about larger events in May. Currently, no decisions have been made regarding events beyond the next few weeks. However, as we have shared throughout this situation, this is a very fluid event and one that we continue to monitor and update.
