FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Two North St. Louis County school districts have pre-planned homework for students to complete in the event the grand jury announcement forces schools to cancel classes.
The districts called on each teacher to come up with homework sufficient for one to two days of school.
As parents in the Ferguson-Florissant and Riverview Gardens districts prepare for the possibility of closed schools, teachers late last week sent home assignment packets for each class to complete and return.
If classes are called off because of the grand jury announcement students in the Ferguson-Florissant district will then be required to turn in the homework projects upon their return.
Area districts have asked for advanced notice before the grand jury announcement is made.
After delaying the start of school during the August unrest, area families say they hope the homework will help keep kids occupied during the down time if they can't attend school.
Several North County churches have said they would open their doors and provide meals for families and tutoring should schools close down.
The nearby Jennings School District has not yet sent homework for students to complete in case of school closings.
