Message from the Principal for 2022-23 School Year

MHS - Preparing for the 2022-2023 school year
Posted on 08/10/2022


The start of the school year is quickly approaching! The entire MHS staff is hard at work preparing for the year, and to welcome your child back to Mehlville on our first day of school, Monday, August 22, 2022. Prior to this we want to welcome all families to our Open House on Thursday, August 18 from 4:00 - 7:00 pm. Staff will be available to greet families, and we will offer breakout sessions for various topics including senior families, families new to MHS, and Flex. More information on breakout sessions will be shared soon.


We want you and your child to have a positive experience this school year. At Mehlville High School we believe in ensuring high levels of learning and collaboration for all. This means we want each student and staff member at MHS to come prepared to learn and grow everyday. We also know the value of effective collaboration in today’s world and want to foster the strong communication skills needed to prepare students for the future. Our core values are Inclusivity, Relationships, Respect, and Responsibility. Our goal is for every Panther to model these traits, both at school and in the community. 


We have an exciting update to share with you about the 22-23 school year! We have restructured our principal and counseling offices in a way that will allow us to best serve our students. Going forward, students will be assigned to principals and counselors by last name. This will allow for more personalized support for each student. The graphic below shows who your child’s principal and counselor are for this year. If you have any questions in the coming weeks, please reach out to them using the contact information at the end of this email.

Breakfast & Lunch Information
Mehlville School District offers breakfast and lunch for students each day.

That waiver expired at the conclusion of last school year. Students will now have to pay for school breakfast and lunch.
