KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Barstow School in Kansas City, Missouri, has canceled classes for the rest of the week.

In a letter sent out to students, Barstow School President Shane Foster said that cancellation is “an abundance of caution,” as a person related to a faculty member is being tested “after possible exposure” to coronavirus.

That person, according to Foster, has not been on the Barstow campus and no staff or faculty have symptoms.

The two canceled days will be used as professional development for staff, according to the letter, as they prepare "for the remote possibility of reopening the school using an online learning model after spring break."

Campus will be closed, as previously scheduled, through March 29.

All extracurricular activities also have been canceled until further notice, according to the letter.
