A press release was issued by Bob Satnan, Communications Director for the Sedalia School District 200.  Read the statement below.

To continue the effort to minimize the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Pettis County school districts will remain closed through at least April 17. All school activities, including athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, have been canceled during the time schools are closed. County school superintendents, along with local health and government officials, continue to monitor the latest developments regarding COVID-19. The decision to extend the closure of our school districts was made out of great caution for our families and with consideration for guidelines set out by the state and federal governments. Individual school districts will be in contact with their communities to provide additional information regarding ongoing learning plans, as well as social services for those in need. Potential extensions of this closing will be shared as soon as those decisions have been made. We will continue to work together to protect our students and each other, and to slow the progression of COVID-19. We will remain in contact with public health officials, elected leaders, and neighboring school districts and keep parents and media updated with new information as it becomes available. We thank our community members for their support and partnership in this effort.
