People in Leavenworth County are still celebrating the Super Bowl victory of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Many of the local schools have already announced that classes are canceled for Wednesday, the day of a celebratory parade in Kansas City, Missouri.

Lansing Interim Superintendent Dan Wessel said there was concern that the Lansing district would struggle with having enough substitutes for teachers who are wanting to take off Wednesday. He said there also likely would be a large number of absences among students.

Wessel said the chances of having a highly productive school day were low.

"And it is a great community event," he said of the parade.

Citing anticipated absences, officials with the Leavenworth public schools announced that Wednesday's classes also are being canceled in that district, according to a message posted on the district's Facebook page.

A similar message was posted on the Basehor-Linwood school district's website.

Classes also have been canceled Wednesday for the Fort Leavenworth public schools, according to Superintendent Keith Mispagel.

Members of the Leavenworth Police Department and Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office will be assisting with traffic control and crowd issues during the parade.

"They asked for support from around the metro area," Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said.

He said four officers from the Police Department will be assisting with what is being called the Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade.

Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley said multiple deputies from the Sheriff's Office will be assisting with the parade Wednesday.

Kitchens said officers with Leavenworth Police Department are being allowed to wear Kansas Chiefs baseball caps with their uniforms through Wednesday.

Kitchens said he began allowing officers to wear the caps after the Chiefs earned a spot in the Super Bowl by winning the AFC championship Jan. 19.

Leavenworth police officers received a number of calls as people in the city celebrated the Chiefs' Super Bowl victory Sunday night.

Kitchens said the Police Department received about a dozen reports of what callers described as shots fired.

"We believe most of it was fireworks," Kitchens said.

But police officers found empty shell casings at two locations.

"There were no injuries," Kitchens said.

He said no arrests were made as a result of the incidents.
