Dear Pattonville High School students, families and staff,
This week, Pattonville announced PreK-2 students will soon move to phase 2 of in-person instruction, and the county health department released updated youth activity guidelines. This means some fall sports in Pattonville will start practicing soon. Here’s how this impacts Pattonville students involved in athletics and activities:
Just because we couldn't meet in person doesn't mean we can't still have open house. Check out our Holman Virtual Open House! Pull out your student's schedule and use the menus at the top to pull down to each teacher to view their introduction and see their contact information.
Starting on Monday, September 14th the district is going to require all Pattonville students to be logged into their school Zoom and Google accounts in order to access ALL teacher’s Zoom meetings. This is being done to prevent any "outside interference" from users outside the district. Some teachers may already be require logging in. In order for you to be able to access all your teacher’s meetings you need to open the Zoom app on your iPad and make sure you are signed in with SSO (Single Sign On). The short video below demonstrates the process. Please make sure you have done this before Monday to prevent any issues attending class.
As we have mentioned in previous communications, our intention is to bring students into our classrooms for in-person learning as soon as possible. In consultation with the St. Louis County Department of Public Health, we have determined it is safe to bring students in preschool through second grade (PreK-2) back for phase 2 of in-person learning. Early childhood will begin on Monday, Sept. 21, and K-2 will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 22. We hope to expand in-person learning to other students as soon as possible. County health officials shared today that children ages 5 to 9 currently have a significantly lower positivity rate for COVID-19 than children ages 10 and up. The county health department continues to recommend virtual instruction for middle and high school students, who make up the bulk of new youth cases in St. Louis County.
