Updates From Superintendent Brett Soden:


Strafford Staff and Families,

The beginning of the school year has been different but our staff and students are now in a routine. I want to thank all of our staff for working hard in all aspects of their jobs to keep our students learning in the safest environment we can provide. 

Last week we began offering free lunch and breakfast daily to all of our students. This program, made possible by the USDA, will continue through the end of December or until funds are depleted. As a reminder, any credits on student lunch accounts will be applied to the second semester.

In an effort to be transparent, we have a page on our district website with COVID-19 statistics. You can view it by clicking HERE. We will update this weekly with the most current information. As a reminder, if your student is considered a direct contact to a positive case you will be notified by the school. 

Below you will find more updates, reminders and links to important information. Don’t forget to visit our school website, mobile app and social media pages also!

Please contact our building offices or our central office if you have any questions. We continue to improve our school district each year to provide the best possible education for our students, and be one of the best school districts in the state of Missouri. We look forward to a great 2020-2021 school year!

Stay Well,
Brett Soden
