COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information

Brentwood Schools will join the St. Louis area districts in closing buildings and extending the Virtual Learning Program for the remainder of the school year as a precautionary measure to limit the spread of COVID-19. To read the full announcement and for more information related to COVID-19, please see the links below.

In Brentwood School District, the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities. 

As a school district, we are closely monitoring the situation revolving around COVID-19 and taking guidance from the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services,the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the St. Louis County Department of Health, and other health experts. Further, school district administrators from across the St. Louis region are collaborating on decisions that affect education during these uncertain times.

As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a close, we are beginning to look ahead to the 2020-2021 school year and what staff, students, and families need to know about the upcoming school year. Please know that we will continue to communicate with you regularly as we respond and adapt to the challenges presented by COVID-19. We will continue to collaborate with experts at the local, state, and federal level to best serve the health and safety needs of our community. Please know that as a school district of unique size and location, our ability to adapt to needs rising from COVID-19 may differ slightly from that of our neighbors. We will update you throughout our decision making process as we plan for next school year. 

We all play a role in reducing the likelihood of a coronavirus outbreak in our school district community. We encourage everyone to practice good health habits, including:

  • Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the restroom and before preparing or consuming food. Using soap and hot water, wash for about 20 seconds. Be sure to also wash your fingertips.

  • Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air. Always try to cough or sneeze into a tissue, and then throw the tissue away. If you don't have a tissue, cough/sneeze into your arm.

  • As much as you can, avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.

  • If children are feeling sick, please keep them home from school. Allow them some time to feel better so that they do not risk infecting others.
