The South Callaway Board of Education meeting planned for Wednesday evening was pushed back amid an ongoing school closure.

South Callaway R-2 has yet to announce an alternate date for the meeting, which will feature discussions about weather days on next year's academic calendar, COVID-related leave for staff, a Missouri ethics ordinance, replacing Apple devices and asphalt sealing bids.

With snow blanketing the region and sub-zero windchill making outdoor conditions hazardous, classes in the district's schools have been canceled since Monday. Planned sports games have also been canceled this week.

However, the district planned to proceed with hosting parent-teacher conferences, remotely via video calls, on Thursday afternoon.

Until this week, the district hadn't been forced to call any full-day inclement weather cancellations during the 2020-21 school year.

"If we feel reasonably sure that we can run our school buses safely, then we will go to school," Superintendent Kevin Hillman reminded parents in a letter in late January. "If we have a reasonable doubt about running our buses safely, we will not go to school."
