Update from the superintendent

Dear Pattonville families and staff,

As we approach spring break, I wanted to provide an update regarding our COVID-19 mitigation practices.

  • As a reminder, masks are optional in all district facilities and school buses. 


  • The district will continue to monitor and report COVID-19 cases on our dashboard which you can find at https://bit.ly/PSDCOVIDinfohub.

  • Based on updated CDC guidance, the district will no longer use a threshold as a basis to return to required masking. 

  • If there is an outbreak of cases at a specific school in the future, the district will review recommendations from the St. Louis County Department of Public Health, the CDC, etc., to make decisions regarding any changes to our mitigation strategies. 

I want to thank you for your continued support and cooperation. I look forward to the next few months of a successful school year for our students, families and staff.


Tim Pecoraro, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
