Back-to-school update from the superintendent


Dear Pattonville families and staff,

We are excited to welcome all our new and returning students and staff back into our classrooms when school begins on Aug. 23. Over the summer months, we have been monitoring local conditions related to COVID-19 and developing plans with two priorities in mind:

After reviewing guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the St. Louis County Department of Public Health (DPH) and the American Academy of Pediatrics, we are putting in place the following health and safety protocols for the new school year until further notice. For more details on our health and safety protocols, visit our COVID-19 Information Hub at

Everyone did an incredible job last year being there for our students, families and each other through the most difficult circumstances. While we, as a nation and a region, are not where we hoped we would be with regard to COVID-19 at this time, we in Pattonville remain strong in our mission to serve and support our students. We stand strong as we approach a new school year because we stand together, we stand for our students. And we always will. Have a great school year. We’ll see you soon.  

Dr. Tim Pecoraro
Superintendent of Schools
Pattonville School District
