KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Sedalia, Missouri, School District was forced to cancel school Friday because of a shortage of bus drivers.
In a Facebook post, the district said a number of school bus drivers called in sick Friday, leaving the district without enough drivers to operate its buses.
On Thursday, Kansas City-based University Academy also canceled classes for Friday citing a high number of teachers who were unavailable due to COVID-19 illnesses.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the driver shortage in Sedalia was tied specifically to COVID-19.
