Check out our Back-to-School Central website

We've compiled important information for students and families in one convenient website. Families and staff can find calendar information, back-to-school events, supply lists, first-day-of-school signs and more on the new website.

Health and safety protocols for 2021-2022

We are consulting with the St. Louis County Department of Public Health (DPH) and reviewing guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Pattonville will share updated details on our health and safety protocols for the new school year in the coming weeks.

Vaccines offered at Aug. 5 clinic at PHS

Thanks to a partnership with the Pattonville Fire Protection District, Pattonville is offering a vaccine clinic specifically for Pattonville families and students ages 12 and older. Pattonville fire department representatives will be on hand to administer the Pfizer vaccine, which is authorized by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on students aged 12 and older. The first vaccine clinic will be held from 4 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 5 in the gymnasium at Pattonville High School, with a follow up clinic for the second dose on Thursday, Aug. 26. Appointments are available by pre-registration only at the following link:

Free COVID-19 testing

Pattonville is partnering with the CDC, St. Louis University and Washington University to offer free COVID-19 testing for the Pattonville community. Tests are saliva-based and do not require nasal swabbing. Testing will be conducted from the patient's car and is available Sundays through Fridays. Results are typically available in 24 to 48 hours. To request a test, call (314) 454-4269.

Getting vaccinated

Although fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can:

  • Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19

  • Get sick from COVID-19

  • Spread COVID-19 to others.

CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Please continue to practice personal protective measures. Additional information from the CDC can be found here.​

St. Louis County’s Back-To-School Immunization Program

The St. Louis County Department of Public Health (DPH) is offering no-cost immunizations for children aged 3 to 18, and free COVID-19 vaccinations for ages 12 and up. This effort is crucial in the fight against the Delta variant, given that we are seeing dramatic spikes in COVID-19 infections among young people. It is imperative that parents get their children aged 12 and older vaccinated. Families can get no-cost immunizations and COVID-19 vaccinations from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday until Sept. 17 at three locations: the John C. Murphy Health Center, 6121 North Hanley Road in Berkeley; the North Central Community Health Center, 4000 Jennings Station Road, in Pine Lawn; and the South County Health Center, 4580 S. Lindbergh Blvd. in Sunset Hills. Additional opportunities will be available from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday evenings at the South County Health Center. Students are asked to bring a copy of their shot records with them. The clinics will close and no immunizations/vaccinations will be offered on Labor Day, which is Sept. 6. DPH will also conduct a special back-to-school event from 9 a.m. to noon on Aug. 14 at the John C. Murphy Health Center. Immunizations and vaccinations will be available, along with special entertainment focused on children and teenagers.​ For more information, go online at:
