Two-Hour Delay Procedure

January 4, 2021

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Living in northeast Missouri sometimes presents our school district with many challenges dealing with adverse weather. Often, severe conditions at 6:00 a.m. are much improved one or two hours later making it safe to continue school activities. With this being said our school district may use the option of a two-hour delay start to the school day for inclement weather or other emergencies.

The need to close or delay the opening of our schools for the safety of students and staff is a decision we take very seriously. We understand students are better served both academically and socially by being in school, however, student and staff welfare is our top priority.

The following procedures will be implemented for a two-hour delay start situation:

Two-Hour Delay Procedure

  1. The superintendent, in conjunction with other school officials, will strive to make a decision by 6:00 a.m. to either close or delay the opening of school and will announce it to the radio and television media.
  2. When a two-hour delay announcement is made, continue to listen to the radio and television for updated information. If conditions deteriorate, a decision will be made to close school for the day by 7:30 a.m.  
  3. During a delayed-start situation, morning bus transportation will be delayed two hours from normal pickup times. This will apply to all students including vocational and special needs students. Students are required to be at their bus stop five (5) minutes early even though buses could be running slow due to weather conditions. Please be sure to dress your children appropriately.
  4.  When school is delayed, it is important that you DO NOT send or drop off your children at school prior to the delayed start time. Building staff will not be available to supervise children before that time. 
  5. Morning preschool classes will be canceled for the day with afternoon classes remaining the same as scheduled. 
  6. NO breakfast will be served. The lunch program will run as usual with some possible changes in serving times and/or menus. 
  7. School dismissal will remain at the normal time when school is delayed.
  8. Scheduled co-curricular activities will be adjusted accordingly to the district needs.

Closing or delaying school is a difficult decision and we do our best to make the correct call. Your continued support and cooperation is appreciated.

Modified Covid-19 and Quarantine FAQ

  • What are the new recommendations announced by the CDC for shortened quarantine periods? 

If you need to quarantine. Options that can be considered, include stopping quarantine

  • On day 10 without testing

  • On day 7 after receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later)

  • After stopping quarantine, you should

    • Watch for symptoms until 14 days after exposure.

    • If you have symptoms, immediately self-isolate and contact your local public health authority or healthcare provider.

    • Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from others, wash their hands, avoid crowds, and take other steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


  • What do Governor Parson’s and the Department of Health and Senior Services/ Department of Elementary and Secondary Education changes mean?

If your student is exposed to someone who is positive for Covid-19 while at school AND both parties are wearing a mask, your student has the option to continue to monitor for symptoms, but attend school during the quarantine timeline. If your child is exposed, you will still be contacted by the district and options for quarantining at home or continuing to attend school, along with timelines will be reviewed. 


  • Who determines if a mask was worn appropriately?

Our administrators who are conducting the contact tracing are asking those questions as part of their investigation. If there is any doubt that masks were worn correctly when there was a positive case in school, they are erring on the side of caution and issuing a standard quarantine. 

  • What types of face coverings are considered acceptable? 

Based on recommendations from  the CDC, DHSS, and DESE, face masks are required for a close contact to be considered for a modified quarantine. Face shields and/or gaiters are not considered appropriate for a modified quarantine and students wearing these will have to complete a standard quarantine. 

  • Can students in a modified quarantine participate in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities?

No. Per the joint guidance of the Department of Health and Senior Services and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, students in a modified quarantine are permitted to go to and from home for the regular school day only. They may not participate in activities before or after school, including school sports and clubs.

  • Do students in modified quarantine need to quarantine outside of school?

Yes, the only change per quarantine guidelines is that your student can attend school, they are expected to continue to quarantine at home outside of school hours.
