( -- Pattonville students will return to class on Tuesday after classes were cancelled Monday due to issues with roads and electricity following Friday's storms.

Areas of the district where roads continue to be blocked or have limited access will have modified bus routes. To view the routes for these areas, click here. These routes will also be posted on the doors of the schools and are being distributed in impacted neighborhoods by Pattonville staff.

If parents are in doubt about transportation, they should transport their children to school. As recovery efforts continue, Pattonville schools may continue to be impacted by issues related to phones, electrical power and internet service.

Dr. Mike Fulton, Superintendent of the Pattonville School District, called Monday an emergency day and said students will not need to make up the day at the end of the school year. 

Officials with the Pattonville School District have assessed all school buildings and they are in good shape with no structural damage.  Bridgeway Elementary suffered minor damage to the exterior, but according to Fulton, it does not impact the ability to conduct classes.

The Pattonville School District has established a relief fund to support the families of Pattonville students and staff who have been impacted by Friday's storm damage. Funds will be distributed through PattCare, Pattonville's charitable organization that supports Pattonville students and staff in crisis.

Anyone wishing to donate to the relief fund should send their donation to PattCare Storm Relief Fund, c/o Pattonville Learning Center, 11097 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Ann, MO 63074. Checks should be made payable to PattCare. Families of Pattonville students or staff needing financial assistance from PattCare to help with recovery needs should contact their school counselor for more information.
