Summer Session

Summer Session
Mehlville School District is offering more in-person learning opportunities during Summer Session than it has in the past. Summer Session is free for all children entering kindergarten through 12th grade.

High school students will have the opportunity to earn up to four credits this summer, and elementary and middle school students can pick and choose which Summer Session theme weeks they’d like to attend between June 7 and July 30.

“We know some students struggled with virtual and blended learning during the 2020-2021 school year,” said Dr. Brian Smith, assistant superintendent of teaching and learning. “The pandemic made high-quality instruction challenging. This expanded Summer Session allows our teachers to revisit and reinforce our curriculum while also providing enrichment activities at the elementary and middle school.”

Free meals will be available to Summer Session students. Transportation shuttles will be available from students’ home schools. COVID-19 safety procedures, including the use of face coverings as determined by St. Louis County Department of Public Health, will be followed during Summer Session.
