A status conference is when the parties on each side appear in court (or sometimes by telephone) to discuss the status of the case. Frequently, the status conference is when motion deadlines, hearing dates, pretrial conferences, trial and other important dates are set.
From reading your description, it sounds like the status conference has been rescheduled to a later date. However, I would strongly advise you to call the clerk of courts. The clerk's office is normally extremely helpful and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your docket. The last thing you to do is miss a scheduled court date.
