The deadline to enroll in the Mehlville School District’s virtual school, Mehlville@Home, is Monday, Aug. 10.
Students who choose the all-virtual school — which will be taught separately than the all-virtual classes that the entire district will start with that could return to classrooms if COVID-19 cases fall in South County — will have to commit to a full semester, ending Jan. 14.
Parents who choose the default virtual/on-campus instruction through Plan C: Connected do not need to take action, the district said. Parents who choose Mehlville@Home must register by Monday, Aug. 10, at 10 a.m. Register now.

The Mehlville Board of Education voted Wednesday night that all Mehlville schools will start virtually with Plan C: Connected. This means that all students, even those who choose on-campus instruction, will be learning virtually for the start of the school year. There are a few key differences between Plan C and Mehlville@Home that are important to understand.

On-Campus Instruction in Plan C
Students who enroll in Mehlville@Home are committed to an entire semester of virtual instruction. Students may switch to on-campus instruction at semester break only. After the semester begins, registration will only be accepted into Mehlville@Home if space is available.
On-campus instruction will be virtual (following Plan C) for an unknown amount of time. As soon as it’s deemed safe by Superintendent Chris Gaines, on-campus instruction could pivot to Plan B (blended learning with staggered attendance) or Plan A (at school).
Mehlville@Home currently offers a limited number of middle and high school courses.
All courses are available for on-campus instruction.
