The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District Public Relations oversees all district efforts to provide our school community with two-way communication that builds engagement, collaboration and confidence.
In an effort to keep you informed about Lee’s Summit R-7 Schools, we communicate in a number of ways including through the district website, electronic newsletters, a district magazine, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
