Pre-Register to receive a vaccine

While the county health department has not provided a process or timeline for vaccinating school staff yet (as of the first week of February), Pattonville school leaders encourage staff to sign up for vaccines through their local health departments, local health systems or pharmacies offering pre-registrations. By registering to receive a vaccine, staff will be contacted when vaccines are available and they are eligible to receive one according to the state’s vaccination plan. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) determines the phase of vaccine distribution for the entire state. Missouri is currently vaccinating individuals in Phases 1A and 1B (Tiers 1 and 2). School employees are in Phase 1B, Tier 3. The state will determine when we move to Tier 3. See list at right for COVID-19 related resources.

CDC school study

Since December, the Pattonville School District has been participating in a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) program studying COVID-19 transmission and mitigation strategies in schools. Pattonville joined other schools in Missouri to partner with the CDC on the project as a way to evaluate the district’s strategies for keeping students and staff safe while attending school during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the study is ongoing, preliminary results in the Missouri study and previous school-related studies in the U.S. have shown that in-school transmission of COVID-19 is rare when mitigation strategies are in place.

Mental health and wellness supports

Virtual Wellness Series

The Pattonville Community Action Team (PCAT) is offering “Healing the Cove,” a series of free online sessions designed to provide Pattonville families, staff and community members with information and support on a variety of topics related to mental health and well-being. Each month during the school year, PCAT will offer two online sessions on topics facing local families, such as coping with stress, suicide prevention for caregivers, getting control of your finances and helping your child with anxiety. The sessions are free, but require pre-registration. For more information or to register, go online at bit.ly/healingthecove.

Virtual Wellness Center

Pattonville values the emotional and mental well-being of every student, staff and community member. To support the entire school family, Pattonville’s counselors, social workers and social-emotional specialists created a website dedicated to mental and physical health and wellness. The Pattonville Wellness Center website serves as a resource of virtual toolkits, community supports and strategies to help with stress management, relaxation, mindfulness, exercise and more. The site also includes online and downloadable resources as well as school counseling contacts. Visit the website at bit.ly/PattonvilleWellness.

Stop and SCreen your health

Students and staff must not come to school if they are sick, quarantining or waiting for COVID-19 test results. Do not come to school if you have a current respiratory illness and/or symptoms of COVD-19 or a known exposure to a positive COVID-19 case within the past 14 days. If any of these apply, please notify your child’s building administrator or, for staff, your principal or supervisor.

All students and staff must screen themselves daily to determine if they have symptoms of COVID-19. A graphic describing COVID-19 symptoms is shown below. This list does not include all possible symptoms. The CDC continues to update this list as it learns more about COVID-19. Find out more at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV.

IMPORTANT: Report positive COVID-19 tests for you or a member of your household.

Everyone must stay home if they are sick. Report normal absences and illnesses as usual. However, positive or suspected cases of COVID-19 need to be reported immediately to allow the schools to take appropriate action. Please report such cases as follows:

Students

  • Contact the building administrator of your child’s school.

Staff Members

  • Contact your building administrator or supervisor.
