Dear Pattonville families,
As mentioned in my email yesterday, Pattonville has been meeting weekly with St. Louis County health and government officials and other school district leaders across the region to discuss how schools can reopen this fall in the safest manner possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders in this weekly group developed a guidance document that categorizes what schools “must” and “may” do when returning to school in August. The recommendations in the document are endorsed by the St. Louis County Department of Public Health and informed by the CDC’s guidance for K-12 schools. These recommendations are subject to change if conditions related to COVID-19 change in the St. Louis County region. These guidelines were finalized today and will serve as the framework for returning to school. You can read the regional guidance document at the following link: https://bit.ly/SLCOguidance2020.
