• Kirkwood Schools provide individualized and unique academic programs and schools for our students. We also have unique challenges. Extending in-person learning opportunities for students while keeping our students and staff safe continues to be our goal during the pandemic.

    At the February 22 Board of Education meeting, it was announced that middle school and high school students will return to full-day, in-person learning schedules starting Monday, March 15. Students have the option of attending full-day, in-person learning Monday - Thursday. At this time Fridays will remain virtual.

    Your building principals will send a message to parents asking them to select either the in-person or virtual learning option for their children. Please look for this message on Tuesday, February 23, and please return your selection by Friday, Feb. 26. Please contact your grade level or building administrator with any questions.
