Kirkwood High School rising senior Sylvia Edwards is one of 25 students in the St. Louis area accepted into the Missouri Historical Society's (MHS) Teens Make History (TMH) Academy. TMH is a nationally acclaimed paid program for high school students at MHS. Since 2007, TMH has helped teens develop professional skills, build confidence, cultivate relationships with mentors and peers from diverse backgrounds, and explore the complexities of history. The purpose of TMH is to provide high school students with meaningful work and give them a high level of ownership over projects that work towards the MHS mission and reach the broader community.
After reviewing the updated guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), KSD will now follow DESE’s recommendations moving forward. This decision is based on reviewing KSD’s internal data along with regional data related to the spread of COVID. As we continue to transition through the pandemic, we need to be considerate of students’ and staff members’ privacy related to their individual decisions about getting the vaccine. The Missouri School Immunization Requirements do not include the COVID vaccination.
