Dear Families,

Boonville R-I School District continues to look ahead to determine the best alternative plan for Catapult’s K- 8 Summer Journey . Due to COVID 19, we know our original dates of May 26-June 26 are unrealistic.

Our current plan is to host summer school programs between July 6 and August 6, 2020. We will follow the recommendations from the State of Missouri and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in regards to program logistics and cancellation, if necessary.

K-8 Summer Journey Program Information:

Catapult’s K- 8 Summer Journey is a fun, exciting and free of charge program open to district and surrounding area students. Teachers are ready to be back in the classroom with students to teach a variety of engaging courses.

Hannah Cole Primary will house entering Kindergarten through 3rd grade. David Barton will house entering 4th grade through 8th grade. Doors will open at 7:45 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. each day. Free breakfast and lunch will be served. An online registration form will be shared through district communications in May. You may also turn in the blue paper form during the supply pick up the week of May 18 or in the black mailbox outside the Administration Building.

In order to start preparing for K-8 summer school please complete the survey.

Over the next few months we will send out communication with additional information. We appreciate all you are doing to keep our community safe and healthy.
