We want to update parents and staff members on two safety matters:
-- The parent of a Sedalia 200 student today received a bomb threat phone call regarding their child�s school. Law enforcement has tracked the call to the New York area but the owner is not traceable. Threat assessment teams from the school district and local law enforcement have deemed the threat as not credible. If you receive such a call, please note the phone number and contact the Sedalia Police Department at 660-826-8100, or School Resource Officer Sgt. John Cline at 660-851-5382.
-- A vehicle believed to have been stolen in Oklahoma by escaped Pettis County Jail inmate Travis Lee Davis has been found in northern Pettis County. Davis remains at large. We encourage parents to take all safety precautions with students traveling to and from school. Sedalia 200 schools remain on standard daily safety protocols, which include all exterior doors being locked and visitors required to state their business at the building before they are allowed entry.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the district office at 660-829-6450 to speak with a superintendent.

To date, Sedalia 200 has had eight inclement weather cancellation days. As spelled out on the district calendar, the makeup dates are:
May 23-24, 28-29*
*May 22, which had been scheduled as an early out, will now be a full day of school and May 29 will be an early out.
The state mandates that the first seven missed days of a school year must be made up; an eighth day is forgiven, but a ninth must be made up. Should we require additional makeup days, they would be added on subsequent days following May 29.
Mark your calendars: Free Physical Night is set for 6 to 8 pm Wednesday, May 15, at Smith-Cotton Junior High School. This is for Sedalia 200 students who will be entering grades 7-12 and plan to participate in extracurricular activities, including athletics, show choir, marching band, cheerleading, dance and JROTC. More details and mandatory forms will be shared later.
Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) and End-of-Course (EOC) scores will be available to parents after January 7, 2019.

On Wednesday evenings, our notification system contacts parents of children whose meal balance is less than $5 but not at zero. We want to clarify some points about these calls:
If the balance is at zero, we assume that the child does not participate in the meal program so there is no need to contact the parent.
We notify those with positive balances below $5 to provide a head's up that within a few days additional funds will need to be added.
If you want to avoid these calls, either take your child's balance to zero or keep it above $5. The Parent Portal will be opened on Tuesday, Sept. 5, and through it parents will be able to check their students' meal balances. Information about accessing the portal will be sent on Monday, Sept. 4.
Pre K-5th grade: free breakfast and $1.75 lunch (afternoon Pre-K students get free lunch)
6th-12th grade: breakfast $1.00 and lunch $1.85
At the elementaries and middle school, students receive breakfast at no charge. Free and reduced-price lunches will be provided to those whose family income qualifies. A family application will be sent home with each child in their back-to-school packet of forms. We need one application per family/household returned for approval even though each student will receive one. If you have received a letter stating you are already approved for free/reduced lunches you do not need to complete the application. Applications are available at all district buildings and may be completed and returned to any Open House or during the first week of school.
At the junior high and highschool, applications for free and reduced-price mealswill be sent home with each child in their back-to-school packet of forms. We need one application per family/household returned for approval even though each student will receive one. If you have received a letter stating you are already approved for free/reduced lunches you do not need to complete the application.

Parents are encouraged to make arrangements to have these vaccinations administered to their children before the school year, which begins Aug. 23. Students will not be allowed to attend classes without these immunizations on file in the nurse’s office.

Message to Sedalia 200 parents whose students were in grades 3 through 8 last school year:
Each year, our students in grades 3 through 8 participate in the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP). According to the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, “The Missouri Assessment Program assesses students’ progress toward mastery of the Show-Me Standards, which are the educational standards in Missouri. The Grade-Level Assessment is a yearly standards-based test that measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri.”
The Individual Student Report (ISR) includes an Achievement Level, which will describe the student's performance as Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, or Advanced. The report will also include a short description of the knowledge and skills that are typically demonstrated by students in each Achievement Level.
Individual results for students who were in grades 3 through 8 last will be handed out during fall parent/teacher conferences.
Per Policy & Regulation 1520, Sedalia School District 200 is to annually issue the district report card to each household with a student enrolled in the district. The Annual Report is accessible here on the district website. Under Quick Links on the left side of this page, click on DESE Data for Sedalia 200. On the right, under Sedalia 200-Summary Reports click on the District link for School District Report Card.
