In-person classes and after-school activities are canceled tomorrow, Thursday, Dec. 22, in the Pattonville School District due to impending weather conditions. All district and school offices will be closed. There will be no board candidate filing tomorrow. Filing will resume on Dec. 27, which is the last day for filing. For filing details, click here.
Tomorrow will be a virtual learning day for students. Students will take part in independent learning activities at home with online teacher support. Teacher’s hours of availability to support student learning will be shared on their student learning platform or via email. Finals scheduled for tomorrow at Pattonville High School are postponed and will be made up after winter break. High school students will receive an update from school administrators tomorrow.
Other school and district staff will work from home unless other arrangements are made with their supervisor. Day custodians and maintenance staff should report to work at their regular time or as instructed by their supervisor. Afternoon and evening custodial staff have the option of reporting to work in the morning. Please work with your supervisor regarding adjustments to your regularly scheduled hours.
As an awareness for family schedules, tomorrow’s virtual learning day will not need to be made up in the future. Winter break begins on Friday, Dec. 23 and students return on Wednesday, Jan. 4.
Each month during the school year, the Pattonville Board of Education honors students, staff and volunteers who have gained recognition outside of the district or who’ve made a special contribution to Pattonville. Learn more about students and staff who were recognized in December.

Back in 2012, when Pattonville High School graduate Sarah Hasekamp was in seventh grade at Holman Middle School, Dr. Julia Gaines (then professor of percussion and now director of the School of Music at the University of Missouri) presented to her band class. On Nov. 21, the 2018 Pattonville graduate served as the presenter to the middle school musicians.
“Dr. Gaines was my percussion professor when I was at Mizzou,” band teacher Adam Hall said. “Sarah was a student in that class, and today, she is in the front of the group performing and talking about her professional music life.”
