(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph School District has announced it will remain closed through April 24, 2020 in response to continued efforts to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The decision, a measure taken to protect our students, staff and their families, aligns with the social distancing recommendations from the CDC and public health officials. Although the City of St. Joseph’s “shelter in place” order allows for exceptions for entities that provide education, the district believes it is in the best interest of our school families and the community to maximize efforts to prevent the spread of the virus.

The district has plans in place to allow school district employees to continue the important work they are doing to feed students and provide academic opportunities.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
