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.
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.
