COVID-19 Staff Reporting

  • Olathe Public Schools remains committed to prioritizing the health and safety of its students and staff.  Accordingly, the protocols and information below are commensurate with the current state of the district and surrounding community as related to the reality of COVID-19.  Due to the ongoing possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak within our schools and community, we must all be prepared to adapt to any number of actions to increase preventive measures in response to changing circumstances throughout the year.  Guidance from local, state, or national agencies influences these measures and could result in revisions to these practices.

     

    Beginning June 1, 2022, Olathe Public Schools will no longer require employees to report individual cases of COVID to the Human Resources Department.  Additionally, employees are no longer required to be formally released by the Human Resources Department to return to work.

     

    The MAWD Drive-Through Testing Clinic located at the Lindenwood Business and Technical Center, 400 N. Rogers Road, Olathe, will close permanently at the end of the day on Thursday, May 26, 2022.  There are no plans to reopen the site at this time.

     

    Test Kits

    The district has a limited supply of COVID-19 test kits.  If you need a test kit and are experiencing difficulties in acquiring one, please contact Chris Nigh in the Human Resources Department to arrange for the pick-up of a test kit.  Please reach out to her between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 913-780-8019 or via email at cnighec@olatheschools.org.
