  • In the event of a delayed start or cancellation of school, we will send out a text message, email and automated phone message with details as soon as the decision has been confirmed. We also will post on Facebook (facebook.com/SedaliaSchoolDistrict200), Twitter (@sedaliaschools) and on the district's smartphone app.

    Decisions on delays and cancellations are based on the information district administrators have in front of them at the time. When the temperature or wind chill factors are below zero or when road conditions are unsafe is when the district will use the options discussed in the letter linked HERE.

  • Starting Wednesday, Sept. 16, all Sedalia School District 200 students will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost through expansion of summer meal programs provided by the federal Department of Agriculture. The free meals will be provided until the end of the semester or until federal funding is exhausted, whichever comes first.
    In addition, free breakfast and lunch grab-and-go meals will be available for pickup weekdays from 9:30 to 10:30 am starting Wednesday, Sept. 16, at Smith-Cotton Junior High School. Meals are available for all local children ages 1 to 18; children need not be present for adults to pick up meals. Drivers should enter the junior high parking lot entrance on 10th Street near the Katy Trail; district staff will be present to provide directions. Those picking up meals must remain in their vehicle. Meal pickups will be cut off by 10:30 am, so plan to arrive by at least 10:15 am to ensure you will receive meals.

  • Attention 8th & 12th grade Parents/Guardians:
    State law and health regulations require students to be properly immunized and provide verification to the school nurse, unless they have an appropriate exemption card from Pettis County Health Center on file. If your child is going into the 8th grade they must have one dose of Tdap and one dose of MCV (Meningococcal Conjugate). The first dose of MCV must have been administered after 10 years of age. 
    Students who will be 12th graders are required to have two doses of MCV unless the first dose was administered at 16 years or older, in which case only one is required. At least one dose must be given after 16 years of age. Students will be excluded from school starting Sept. 14, 2020, if immunizations aren’t up-to-date.
    The state has required these immunizations whether students are attending school in person or virtually.
    Parents are encouraged to have their doctor's office or health agency fax or email the records to the appropriate office (nurse contacts are listed below) or they can scan and email the record themselves.

  • During its Aug. 24 meeting, the Sedalia School District 200 Board of Education approved an amended resolution regarding the required use of face coverings by students and staff members. The resolution now states that masks and gaiter scarves that cover the nose and mouth are appropriate face coverings. Face shields are not acceptable.
    Teachers may use face shields in limited time frames when curriculum requires them, but not as a replacement for masks generally.

  • On Monday, Aug. 10, the Sedalia School District 200 Board of Education voted in favor of K-12 students and staff members returning to in-person education with face coverings (masks, gaiter scarves) required when 6-foot social distancing cannot be achieved. Pettis County Early Childhood Center will meet in person but face coverings will be optional for students.

    With COVID-19 positive cases increasing in Pettis County, administrators have created a plan to provide a safe environment for learning for all students. Surveys indicated parents and staff members preferred a return to in-person education; with all students and staff members wearing face coverings, any positive COVID case would be considered a “low risk” exposure, which would help reduce the need for quarantine.

    The latest update of the district’s Re-Entry Guide is available under Quick Links at the top left of this page. We will be following the Option 1 protocols. If families would prefer a virtual education option, information about MOCAP, the state’s preferred online learning platform, is included in the guide and toward the bottom of this page.

  • Attention 8th & 12th grade Parents/Guardians:
    As we approach the beginning of the school year there are still a lot of uncertainties. However, your child's health and well being should be priority. It is still very important to stay on track with well child checks and immunizations. State law and health regulations require students to be properly immunized and provide verification to the school nurse, unless they have an appropriate exemption card from Pettis County Health Center on file. 
    If your child is going into the 8th grade they must have one dose of Tdap and one dose of MCV (Meningococcal Conjugate). The first dose of MCV must have been administered after 10 years of age. 
    Students who will be 12th graders are required to have two doses of MCV unless the first dose was administered at 16 years or older, in which case only one is required. At least one dose must be given after 16 years of age. Students will be excluded from school starting Sept. 14, 2020, if immunizations aren’t up-to-date.
    The state has required these immunizations whether students are attending school in person or virtually.
    Parents are encouraged to have their doctor's office or health agency fax or email the records to the appropriate office (nurse contacts are listed below) or they can scan and email the record themselves. Parents may bring their student's immunization record or original religious exemption card stamped by Pettis County Health Center to the district's Central Office, 2806 Matthew Drive, where it can be copied and kept in a file for the appropriate building nurse. If the only option available is to hand-copy the record, parents can do that at the Central Office until Aug. 24, when the junior high and high school buildings open.

  • 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 is now open, and through it parents are able to check their students' meal balances. 

    MEAL PRICES
    Pre K-5th grade: free breakfast and $1.90 lunch (afternoon Pre-K students get free lunch)
    6th-12th grade: breakfast $1.15 and lunch $2.00 

    FREE/REDUCED-PRICE MEALS

    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 high school, applications for free and reduced-price meals will be sent home with each child in their back-to-school packet of forms. We need just 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. 

    MEAL PROGRAM PAYMENTS
    Payment to student lunch accounts may be handled with the following options:
    ● Online payments can be made through the Parent Portal or the district website via the RevTrak system.

    -- Cash, check or money order may be sent with and delivered by your student to the cafeteria in the morning before lunch shifts begin. One check could be sent for multiple students if you note amount to be applied for each child and their school. Online payments can be made through RevTrak at https://sedalia200.revtrak.net/
    -- A check or money order may be mailed to the school to the attention of the cafeteria. One check could be sent for multiple students if you note amount to be applied for each child and their school.
    -- For Smith-Cotton High School, parents/guardians who choose to personally deliver payment must do so in the cafeteria between the hours of 8:20 and 11 a.m. Payment may not be dropped off at the high school office. Please feel free to call the high school cafeteria at 660-851-5380 with any questions.

    The Parent Portal (link above) is now open for the current school year. We encourage all parents to access the portal to ensure they know how to access grade, attendance and other information about their student(s). Be sure to select the Parent Tab to log in.

    If you don't recall your password, you can enter your email address and the system will send you a prompt to reset it. Once you are logged in, please go to the Menu button at the top left and select Update Household Data. Next to Household Parents, click the Edit link, then click the + symbol next to the name of the parent whose data you are checking/updating. Make the needed changes then click Save at the bottom right of the page.

    If other changes are needed (Household address, Student data, Emergency contacts), click on the return to list icon at the bottom of the page.

    Having a current phone number and email address listed in the Parent Portal is vital - this is the data our Parent Notification system uses to contact you with weather delays/cancellations, attendance calls and other school-related information. If you don't recall which email address you used or if that email address is no longer active, please contact your school's administrative assistant for help.
