COVID-19 Data Dashboard
The Raytown C-2 School District (RQS) is committed to sharing transparent data related to COVID-19 cases among students and staff.
The District has created the following COVID-19 data dashboard to inform staff, families, students and the community about positive cases in the school district.
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.
The Raytown C-2 School District currently has 8,572 students and 1,361 staff members among our schools and facilities.
When the District receives a positive case confirmation, RQS works in collaboration with either the Jackson County or Kansas City Health Departments to determine any individuals who may have had close contact with the COVID-19-positive student or staff member. Seating charts, class schedules, activity rosters, and other contact logs are used for contact tracing purposes in the event of a potential COVID-19 exposure.
If it is determined that your child has been in close contact with a positive case, you will be personally notified. Close contact is defined by the health authorities as being within 6 feet of an individual for more than 15 minutes within a 24-hour time period.
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 will be removed from the totals listed below as they will no longer be 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. You can find the School Reopening Plan, including health and safety precautions here.

COVID-19 Data District Summary
New Positive Cases & New Quarantine
Graph Data Explanation
The chart and graph reflect new positive cases and quarantines during the week. Quarantine numbers do not directly correlate with positive cases as students and staff are quarantined for potential symptoms or exposure. It is also possible for a possible positive case to cause a quarantine the following week due to notification of test results and contact tracing.
For example, Joe Smith reports potential symptoms on Thursday and is quarantined. Joe Smith receives a positive test result on Sunday. Contact tracing is conducted and those potentially exposed are quarantined on Monday.
