What We Heard From You: Results From Our Recent Exchange

We want to stay connected and hear your questions and ideas about moving forward during this challenging and uncertain time. We are smarter and better together. With that in mind, we asked our families, staff, and secondary students: What are the most important things our school and district needs to think about as we continue to respond to COVID-19 and plan for the future?

Click below to learn what we heard. You can see all results district-wide or toggle between buildings.

Thank you so much for lending your voice! Your feedback helps guide our actions and decisions as we navigate learning and teaching during a global pandemic.

COVID-19 Statistics in Affton School District

The Affton School District administrative team monitors St. Louis County data, including the number of new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 individuals, transmission rate, and positivity rate, on a daily basis. In addition, we are consulting frequently with medical professionals and St. Louis County Department of Public Health leadership. We will continue to monitor local data as we seek to make decisions in the best interest of our students, staff, and community.

We've added a dashboard to our website, designed to share a weekly snapshot of COVID-19 statistics in our district. Data will be updated every Tuesday. Click here to learn more:
