Where did the school year go? It’s hard to believe the year is over, but most folks are surprised at the amount of work that goes on here during the summer.

Summer school started on June 4 with a record number of students attending. We anticipate over 1,000 elementary students at Bierbaum and Blades. Nearly 400 middle school students will attend full days of summer school at Bernard.  Hundreds of high school students will get ahead or catch up on coursework. It will be a busy June.

There are lots of summer projects happening as well. Several parking lots will get some work. A few schools will get new stair tread. Mehlville High and Washington Middle will have some ceiling work done. There is roof work at four schools.  The gym A floor at Mehlville High gets replaced. There are many projects at Oakville High.  These include replacing the field turf, spraying the track, lots of HVAC work, and new HVAC controls.

We have less than 60 working days to get the above work done, plus the annual cleaning that goes on in buildings. Our maintenance and custodial staff will be working tirelessly over the summer break to have the buildings ready to go when students return in August.

I hope you have a great summer. Thank you for allowing us to serve the children of our community.
