Winter Weather CommunicationOccasionally, Mehlville School District cancels school or delays the start of school due to inclement weather or other emergency. When school is canceled, parents and community members will be alerted in a variety of ways.

In the event of a snow day, staff and parents will be notified via text, phone call and/or email through SchoolMessenger. Parents can update their contact preferences or add contacts (grandparents, childcare providers or even students) by logging into SchoolMessenger.
In order to receive texts about cancellations or events at your child’s school, text the word YES to 67587 from any wireless device on file with your child’s school.
