Dear Pattonville families and staff,
On Oct. 5, county officials announced recommendations in favor of the return of in-person learning for high school students, as the spread of COVID-19 has dropped to favorable levels in St. Louis County and among children of all ages. For this reason, we have determined that we will bring Pattonville High School students back for phase 2 of in-person learning beginning Thursday, Oct. 29.
