(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— The St. Joseph School District has pushed back the first day of school to August 31 and will require masks inside district facilities and on district transportation.

The district said this will give them time to make sure they're in the best possible situation once students return. 

Along with pushing back the start of the school, the district is requiring masks or face coverings for all staff, students, visitors, and vendors when in a district facility or using district transportation.

As an exception, the covering may be removed when the individual is in a setting in which social distancing can clearly be maintained for an extended period of time or during scheduled socially distanced breaks as established by schools.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
