Northland Schools Called for Royals Celebration


Earlier today we made the announcement that school would be in session as originally scheduled for November 3, 2015, but due to the variety of challenges that has created, including student attendance concerns and a shortage of staff substitutes, the Kearney School District is cancelling classes on Tuesday, November 3. This will be treated like an inclement weather day and will be made up at the end of the year. The last day of school will now be Thursday, May 26th. We hope you enjoy this special day with your families.



Liberty Public Schools has made the decision to cancel classes for Tuesday, November 3, 2015, in order to allow our students, staff, and community to participate in the city-wide celebration of our world champion Kansas City Royals.

As today unfolded, we received significant feedback from staff, parents, and students saying they plan to be absent from school on Tuesday.  There was also concern of not having enough substitutes in classrooms to take care of our students; thus, we have come to this decision.

The LPS Kid’s Zone program will be held at Shoal Creek Elementary for those already signed up.  Operating hours will be 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.  For students involved in after-school activities, please check with your sponsor/coach for any possible schedule changes.

This day will need to be made up at the end of the year, now making your last day of school Monday, May 23, 2016.

North Kansas City

After hearing from our students, parents, teachers and staff, NKC Schools will now be CLOSED on Tuesday, Nov. 3. With the number of anticipated absences, it simply makes more sense to cancel class to allow our community to celebrate. This day will be made-up at the conclusion of the school year.

Adventure Club will be open at inclement weather sites to serve those students already enrolled in the program. Check www.nkcschools.org/adventureclub for a list of those sites.

Again, congratulations to the Kansas City Royals on their World Series Championship!


With the excitement of the Royals winning the World Series and our city turning blue, there will be no school on Tuesday, November 3.
