Truck clearing snowIn the 2023-2024 school year, Mehlville School District can use up to five virtual learning days if our schools close due to snow or inclement weather. If more than five weather closures occur, we will use traditional snow days. Traditional snow days will be made up starting on May 30, 2024.

On a virtual learning day, students are expected to check their email or Google Classroom by 9 a.m. to get their assignments or Google Meet information. Virtual instruction days are not made up at the end of the school year. More information about schedules and expectations will be shared by your child’s teacher or principal.

On a traditional snow day, there is no in-person school and no virtual learning. Traditional snow days will be made up beginning on May 30, as scheduled on the district calendar.

On both virtual learning days and traditional snow days, all after-school and evening activities and events are canceled unless otherwise communicated. This includes Y Club, community education programs and facility rentals.

In the event that we use a virtual learning day or traditional snow day, staff and parents will be notified via text, phone call and/or email through ParentSquare. Additionally, high school students will receive an email via ParentSquare. Snow days and virtual instruction days will also be announced through the district Facebook account and Instagram account, via our district website,, through local television stations and other media partners.
