Pattonville School District Calendar Information
The board approved calendars for the 2021-2022 school years were developed by Pattonville’s calendar committee, which included parent, student, teacher, support staff, board member and administrator representatives. A major factor in developing the calendars was complying with a state law that went into effect last fall. House Bill 604 prohibits school districts from setting the first day of school more than 14 calendar days prior to the first Monday in September (Labor Day).
When developing Pattonville's new calendars, the calendar committee focused on improving student achievement and took into consideration survey feedback from parents, students and staff. Other factors included family and staff considerations, professional development needs and holidays/special events. Key features of the new calendars include:
Fewer early dismissal days at all grade levels (including high school “C” days);
Ending first semester and high school finals before winter break;
All grade levels resuming classes on the same day after winter break;
Make-up days for inclement weather or other emergencies being added to the end of the calendar, to be used as needed; and
Adjustments to some school hours to comply with state requirements (see below).

Make-up Days and Summer School
May 25 through 27, May 31 and June 1 and 2 are designated as traditional makeup days. A makeup day may be used when a regularly scheduled student attendance day is canceled due to inclement weather or an emergency. Depending on the situation, Pattonville may have a virtual learning day instead of making up a day at the end of the school year. On a virtual learning day, students will experience a combination of independent work with virtual support via Zoom from their classroom teachers. Specific information will be communicated based on the nature of the inclement weather or emergency situation.
All school calendars are subject to change to be in compliance with state law, including the required number of emergency days and the agreed upon number of contracted days for staff.
Summer school dates are dependent on the number of emergency days used during the regular school year and are subject to change.
Note: All school calendars are subject to change to be in compliance with state law, including the required number of emergency days and the agreed upon number of contractual days for staff. Non-student attendance days in these calendars may be changed to student/staff attendance days at the discretion of the superintendent based on inclement weather significantly impacting school attendance.
