April 10, 2020

Good afternoon everyone. This afternoon Governor Parson in collaboration with the DESE ordered all Missouri Public schools to shut down for the remainder of the school year. Districts are required to continue to provide distance learning during this time through the remainder of the school year. For us this is May 13th. We will provide additional information on how our District will respond to this order moving forward but wanted you to be aware of this recent development. Within a half hour of the announcement MSHSAA announced the cancellation of all remaining postseason events for the 2019-2020 school year.

We know this is an announcement that saddens everyone but it is in the best interest of keeping the spread of the virus down. There will be a school board meeting held April 15th that will address the questions we all have about Prom, Graduations (Seniors, Eighth Grade, and Kindergarten),  and grades. Hopefully answers will be found as well as what the end of the year will include. Please be patient and thank you for the continued support during these unprecedented times.
