Sedalia 200 schools closed through April 3

Sedalia School District 200 administrators continue to monitor the latest developments concerning novel coronavirus (COVID-19), including consulting with local and state officials and health offices. To help ensure the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff members, and to do our part in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, we are taking the following actions:
 Spring Break ends Friday, March 20, but all Sedalia 200 schools will remain closed at least through Friday, April 3. District administrators will continue to monitor the situation through that time to determine if an extension will be needed.
 During this closure, all Sedalia 200 athletic and activity events (practices, performances, meetings, etc.) are cancelled. Sedalia 200 facilities also will be unavailable for community use.
 Flexible Learning Activities have been provided for students in grades K-8. They can be downloaded from the Parents & Students tab at the top of this page. Students in grades 9-12 should use their Chromebooks to access the Canvas learning platform and Google Classroom for lessons from their teachers.
 We are working with a network of local agencies and churches, along with our district food service staff, to provide meals for students eligible for the federal free and reduced-price meal program. Meals will be delivered by First Student bus drivers at regular pickup and drop-off locations. We will have more details on this service soon.
 Kindergarten screenings, originally scheduled for April 1, will be rescheduled. The annual School Resource Fair has been cancelled.
In the coming days and weeks, we will be sending updates with information and resources via email, text messages, our website, and social media channels.
We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we continue to work through this difficult situation. We will get through this challenge together.
