KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Public Schools will be switching things up when the NFL Draft comes to town in a few weeks.

The district will be implementing Alternate Methods of Instruction (AMI) during two days of the NFL Draft.

The changes will take place on Thursday, April 27, and Friday, April 28.

In a release, the district said it made the switch in anticipation of increased traffic and possible closures, and leaders want to prevent students from being late or absent due to road closures or lack of transportation.

Elementary students will bring home instructional packets on Wednesday. They will be due back by Monday, May 1.

Students must return their completed packets to receive attendance credit for both days.

Elementary teachers will be available via phone, email or Microsoft Teams from 9 a.m. to noon during those days.

Middle and high school students will have virtual learning from 9 a.m. to noon. They are expected to log on and attend classes during this time.
