Dear Patrick Henry Families, welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Our second quarter will be a hybrid model of some in-person and some virtual teaching. Please see below for details about our new schedule. Thank you for your patience as we all learn this new system together. We miss you and hope you are staying healthy and safe!
PLEASE NOTE: THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23RD WILL BE ALL VIRTUAL. ALL STUDENTS WILL REMAIN AT HOME AND LOG INTO TEAMS BY 8:00AM. IN-PERSON LEARNERS WILL RETURN TO SCHOOL ON DECEMBER 7TH.
Virtual Students (PreK – 5th Grade):
In-Person Students (PreK – 5th Grade):
IMPORTANT FOR ALL IN-PERSON LEARNERS: Do NOT send your child to school if he/she has any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, congestion/runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, headache, fatigue, muscle or body aches, difficulty breathing, or loss of taste/smell. Check your child carefully each morning. If a child is found with any of these symptoms while at school, they will be sent home and will not be able to return to in-person learning for 14 days or until they bring a clearance note from a doctor that provides an alternate diagnosis for their symptoms. Always keep your child home if you are unsure.
Please keep in mind that your child may have to return to virtual learning suddenly if any of the following occur:
Be sure to have a back-up plan in case this happens.
For all tech support questions, reach out to Ms. Kelsey Jones. Ms. Jones can be reached by phone at 314-231-7284, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Welcome to Patrick Henry Downtown Academy!
At Patrick Henry, we are determined to meet the needs of every child who walks through our doors. We have a dedicated staff that returns year after year to pursue our mission and vision. We have an invested family community that chooses St. Louis Public Schools and Patrick Henry every day, partnering with us in our mission and vision for their children. And we have a strong community of neighbors, businesses, and nonprofits that work together to provide for our students academically, socially, and emotionally. In short, we have an incredible village that comes together to serve our students daily.
The 2020-2021 school year will begin with an entirely virtual first quarter. We are all learning through this process, but we are excited to take this journey with our families. In order to have a successful year, we must partner with our families, our neighbors, and our community organizations. Please join us in our mission to equip all students with the academic skills, scholarly habits, and character traits necessary to be successful in college or the career of their choice.
Thank you for choosing St. Louis Public Schools, and welcome to Patrick Henry Downtown Academy!
