Schools Extend Closures Beyond Original April 6 Date
The Ste. Genevieve R-II School District and other Mineral Area Athletic Association schools announced on Monday that they would remain closed through Thursday, April 30.
Ste. Genevieve was among the schools in the region that announced on March 16 they would stop having classes as of March 18 and potentially resume them on Monday, April 6.
The tentative first day back is now Friday, May 1.
The Archdiocese of St. Louis — which oversees Valle Catholic Schools as well as St. Agnes and St. Joseph grade schools — was part of that original regional decision and then extended its closure. Rev. Edward Nemeth, president of Valle, said on Sunday night that teachers would not return before Thursday, April 23, and that classes were scheduled to resume on Monday, April 27.
