Sioux City Community Schools

Even though there is a positive case of COVID-19 at an elementary school in Sioux City, summer school will continue.  A spokesperson for the Sioux City Community School District says a positive COVID-19 case was reported at Morningside STEM Elementary. The person who tested positive and others who came in close contact have been told to self-isolate or self-quarantine.  Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day of summer school for certain and in the district.

Spring arrives in one month, but many in Siouxland still have problems dealing with the financial part of winter.

The Community Action Agency of Siouxland offers a special program to keep people warm during this cold season.  The Executive Director of the group, Jean Logan, tells Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer about the LIHEAP and more.

There’s a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of Siouxland including Woodbury County until 6 tonight.  The National Weather Service says areas under the advisory could get up to six inches of snow.  Sioux City could see another three inches this afternoon.

Wintry weather forced several school districts in Siouxland to either start late or cancel classes all together today. 

And, even though Spring doesn’t officially start for another month, an energy assistance program is available for low-income people in Iowa.
