Bernard Pledge:  I pledge to be Accountable by coming to class prepared and ready to learn.  I am responsible for my grades, my behavior and my success.  As a Bernard Patriot, I will work hard each and every day!

Bernard Touchstone:  We are responsible for our grades, our behavior and our success. Bernard Patriots are Accountable each and every day.
Beginning Friday morning and until further notice, some bus routes for Blades, Bernard and Oakville High will be changing due to a bridge problem on Baumgartner Road, between Heintz Road and Birch Mount Place. The bridge has been deemed unsafe for traffic. For homes in that area, the District will use the same alternative bus stops that were created during the winter floods. The pick up and drop off times remain the same, but slight delays could occur due to the detour. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

From The Nurse - School Medication


     The end of the year is fast approaching.  At this time I would like to remind you of Mehlville School District’s policy on medications at school.  All medications, including inhalers and over-the-counter meds, must be picked up by a parent/legal guardian or a person 18 years of age or older.  As per district policy, I am not permitted to send medications home with students.
     If other arrangements need to be made, contact my office prior to the last day of school.  No medications will be kept at school over the summer and any medications left at school will be destroyed. 
     Please contact the school nurse with any concerns.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

8th Grade Immunization Requirements for 2016/2016 School Year
8th Grade Immunization Requirements for 2016/2017 School Year
Missouri State Law requires all students entering 8th grade must have their Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and MCV (meningococcal) vaccines before the first day of school.
This is a good time to check your child’s immunization records to see if they have received these shots. 
Nurse Lasley will be sending home individual letters in May, enclosed with report cards, to those students who are not in compliance with the state requirements.  Letters will be sent based on our most current records on file.  At any time you may send in or have faxed an updated copy of your child’s shot record. 
Any student receiving a letter in May will not be allowed to start school without having received the shot(s) or providing documentation.
Thank you for your attention to this matter, as our goal is to keep our students healthy and protected. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Nurse Lasley at 314-467-6630 or tlasley@mehlvilleschooldistrict.net.

Snow Schedule Option To Be Used During Winter Months
The Mehlville School District has decided to implement a snow schedule, when appropriate, during the winter months of the 2015-2016 school year.  On days when the District operates on a snow schedule, classes will begin two hours later than their normal start times.  The school day will end at the normal time for each building.

Utilizing the snow schedule will depend upon morning road conditions, the chance for additional snow throughout the day and other important criteria.  If travel is considered to be unsafe, schools and all district activities would be canceled for the entire day.

A snow schedule school day will count as a full attendance day, so there will not have to be any make-up days later in the spring.  All school buses will operate as normal, with them making their morning stops two hours later than usual.  Y Care programs at district schools would also follow the snow schedule and open two hours later than normal.  Breakfast will be available for students arriving before classes begin.

School closing and snow schedule information will be available on the District website, school Facebook pages, Twitter and on local TV and radio stations.
