Last Updated April 16, 2020
As you know, last week we learned our schools will remain closed through the end of this academic year. Since that time, we have been working to answer questions related to the extended school closure. Updates on distance learning, plans for retrieving student belongings and returning student devices, summer school and more are available at this link. More information will be shared as we receive updated guidance from state education leaders and our plans are developed further. Please continue to monitor district communications.


  • Students will participate in learning from home for the school days through May 15. Learning resources are available at the links below.
  • The updated learning guides for students in grades K-8 include activities that do not require internet access. If your child has internet access, please continue to utilize the resources provided online by the district and your child's teacher.

  • If you need the new printed learning activities for your student, the materials will be available for pickup during the meal distribution on Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 8-10:30 a.m. through May 15 at the following locations: Benton High School, Central High School, Lafayette High School, Carden Park Elementary School and Coleman Elementary School.

  • We realize that helping your children with their learning may be challenging. We have developed a resource with some tips and some free resources you to use during this time of remote learning.
  • Students with IEPs should have received communication from a teacher regarding accommodations during remote learning.


  • All SJSD families throughout the district will have access to free breakfast and lunch for students during the school closure. View the meal distribution flyer here.
  • Should a family have issues with illness or mobility, please contact our district office at 816-671-4000.
