Johnson County school districts release joint statement on COVID-19


As partners in community health, the six school districts of Johnson County, Johnson County Government and the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment are in the process of collaborating and accumulating data regarding the continuation of school following spring break.


The districts are currently deep cleaning and disinfecting buildings and school buses while students and staff members are on spring break.


The Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Kansas Department of Education advised against school closures at this time. Although they have advised against a closure, we would like parents to be aware that a closure may become necessary in the future.


Before we return from spring break, we will continue to evaluate the implementation of the interim guidance from the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment Kansas Department of Education.


As we collaborate with local health officials, we will provide additional information as soon as it becomes available.
