Welcome to the Update Center

Welcome to the SG R-II COVID-19 Update Center, a dedicated space on our district website designed to keep parents, staff, and the community informed about the potential effect of the coronavirus, or COVID-19. We created this centralized hub of updates and links to additional resources, such as links to the Ste. Genevieve County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.

We are working on plans to for the re-opening of school in the fall, and will share that information with staff, families and the community as those plans solidify. During the second week of July, we will request feedback through surveys to our families and faculty and staff. Please check back here often for more updates as we progress.

This Update Center serves as an ongoing, reliable resource for the entire school community, in order to communicate proactively and transparently. It is our mission to keep you informed on how we are preparing to cope with COVID-19, and hope you'll find it useful. Toward the bottom of this page, you can find an archived list of all District communications since mid-March.


According to Missouri School Immunization requirements, incoming kindergartners, 8th graders and 12 graders are due for immunizations prior to attending their first day of school.
