It's Back to School Time!

Message From The Principal
Andrea Deane

Hello Jaguar Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  We hope you had a wonderful summer vacation and are excited to begin school on August 16, 2017.  Our regular school hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.  Please make it a habit to arrive to school on time daily.  This is very important for many reasons.  Students are asked to arrive between 7:45 a.m. and 8:00 as we do not provide supervision of students before this time.  If you are in need of before or after school care for your child, we offer service via our campus satellite YMCA program at 314-849-4668.  Students are counted tardy when the bell rings at 8:00.  

To kick off our new school year, we invite you to our Back to School Bash and Curriculum Night on August 14, 2017. This will begin at 5:30 for all grades K-5.  All students are asked to bring their school supplies and drop them off in their classroom so the first day of school will run smoothly!

We encourage all students to ride the bus the first day of school to help establish daily routines.  The teachers will meet their class when the buses arrive at school.  We will have a school wide student celebration assembly to welcome everyone back on the first day!  We will dismiss promptly at 2:50 p.m. in our front circle drive and we encourage parents to pick up in our parent pick up line behind the school library. Bus Route information is on the Mehlville School District website or we will have the information available at our Back to School Bash.  If you have concerns about your bus route, please call 467-5240 and our transportation department will be happy to help with solutions.

 We have a wonderful cafeteria staff that will host your child for lunch each day.  Your child may bring a lunch from home or purchase a hot lunch for $2.40.  Extra milk and/or juice cost 0.50 cents.  Branded pizza days will be $2.60.  School breakfast costs $1.50.  The district asks all parents to pre-pay into an account.  Students may bring a check in any amount made out to the Mehlville School District to pay for lunches ahead of time.  Be sure you place your child’s name and teacher’s name on an envelope and clearly state that the money is for LUNCH.  Our cafeteria manager, Kelli Doran, can be reached at 314-467-5450 to answer any questions. 

 Don’t forget all immunizations must be current by the first day of school.  Kindergarten students, 4th grade students and ALL new students must have a physical examination record on file.  Please call our school nurse, Mrs. Wright, at 467-5430 if you have any questions.

 If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 314-467-5401 or by email at deanea@mehlvilleschooldistrict.net.              

 Thank you for your support in making your child’s education a success.  I am excited about our upcoming year and look forward to seeing you soon!

 Mrs. Andrea Deane, Principal
