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.

2015 Scholarship Winners
The Mehlville-Oakville Foundation has selected the winners of the scholarships administered by the MOF. All names are blanked out on the scholarship applications to ensure anonymity of the applicant. All scholarships are reviewed by three scholarship committee judges and the results compiled to select the recipient. The judges commented that this was a difficult job as the applicants were all well qualified. This reflects positively on the quality of the education these students have received in the Mehlville School District. Congratulations to the winners.
