  • We want to make you aware that Nightwatch Security will be repairing the fire alarm system starting this week at the Smith-Cotton Junior High campus (SCJH).

    Over the first few days of school, we experienced intermittent false alarms, indicating issues within the system that had not surfaced before. Security Officer Rodney Collins is our fire watch designee and is patrolling every area of the building on scheduled rotations until we are certain the system is working properly. SCJH staff are aware of the repairs and will notify Officer Collins immediately if any suspicious fire activity is noticed. The Sedalia Fire Department is working closely with us as we address this situation.

    The safety and security of students and staff members is our primary concern, so this matter is being addressed with great urgency. Thank you for your patience during the repair period; we will post a follow-up message when the system is repaired.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Just a reminder to all parents of upcoming 8th and 12th grade students:  They must be up-to-date on their immunizations before school starts or it will delay their first of day of school.  Missouri law requires all 8th graders provide proof of a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) 1 dose and MCV (meningococcal) 1 dose.  All 12th graders need to provide proof of 2 doses of MCV (meningococcal), unless the first dose was administered on or after the date when the student reached 16 years of age.  If you have any questions about your student's immunizations status, please contact your student's health care provider or your student’s school nurse.

  • Missouri State Law requires all students entering eighth grade to have a current Tdap immunization on file. For the 2019-2020 school year, students entering eighth grade and 12th grade will also be required to have a current Meningococcal vaccination on file with the school nurse as well before they may begin the school year. Parents are encouraged to make arrangements to have these vaccinations administered to their children before the school year, which begins Aug. 27. Students will not be allowed to attend classes without these immunizations on file in the nurse’s office. All incoming eighth grade students will be required to have both the Tdap and the Meningococcal vaccinations. If you have questions, contact Health Services Coordinator Casey Smith at 829-6588.

    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.
