R7 Summer Learning Institute will be different this year: Students will enroll in 2 enrichment courses (AM and PM). Kindergarten will attend all day (not the shortened day of the past). Identified students will attend 1 recovery course and 1 enrichment course. Transportation will provide shuttle service from a student’s school of residence to a partnered/nearby school. Title 1 schools will be provided curbside bus service. Lunch will be provided to all students, free of charge. A fee-based Summer Camp will be available before and after Summer Learning. As soon as it is available, a flyer will be shared on this post.
Curbside meals will be available for pickup up on Wednesdays, March 3, 10, 17 and 24 from 12-1 p.m. at Lee’s Summit North High School and Lee’s Summit West High School. These will include five breakfast meals and five lunch meals. To cover the week of Spring Break, we will have a special meal pickup at the same locations/time on Friday, March 26.
