Beginning Monday, Nov. 2, the free curbside meal pickup for Pattonville students will shift to Mondays only at Pattonville High School. The new hours for Monday meal pickup are from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5 to 6 p.m. The meal bags will contain five breakfasts and five lunches for the whole week and will be distributed under the bridge at the high school.
To help plan for the remainder of the school year, Pattonville families are asked to select their children’s learning option for the second semester by Friday, Nov. 6. Families have two learning choices:
Villemade Virtual Academy (100% virtual learning) or
In-person learning with phases that change depending on the health conditions in the community and in our schools.
Drummond Elementary ISS supervisor Adrienne Draper has written and published several children’s books. Her latest title, “Rona, Rona, GO AWAY!” was released in June. It’s a story that gives the reader a snapshot of how an 8-year-old boy and his family adjusted to the rapid changes in their community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Kids were getting excited about spring break and having this extra week off of school,” Draper said. “The book focuses on the highs and lows of what happened next and makes the Coronavirus something kids can understand.”
