September 28, 2020 – Dr. Clark Email

Good Morning MOSAIC Families,

I am excited to begin my weekly email with the announcement of the return of our 3rd-5th grade students in person starting on Tuesday, October 6th. It is incredible to know that we will have all our grade levels back at school.

I will be hosting an informational meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, September 30th beginning at 6pm for our 3rd-5th grade families. I will focus my presentation on what protocols we have in place to keep our students and staff safe and what learning will look like in the studios as we continue in a blended model.

School Hours/Student Arrival/Student Dismissal

MOSAIC’s school hours are 9:10am-4:00pm Tuesday through Friday (Virtual hours for Mondays in the blended model are from 9:00am -2:20pm.) Student arrival begins at 8:55am on the playground parking lot and concludes at 9:10am. Student dismissal begins sharply at 3:55pm. I ask that all families be on MOSAIC’s parking lot before 3:50pm for the safety of students. All families have been assigned a parking row for afternoon dismissal pick up.  K-1 families will pick up their child on the playground parking lot. 2nd-5th grade families will pick up their child on the lower parking lot.

Bus Routes

MOSAIC students have the opportunity to ride a Mehlville school bus to MOSAIC each morning. Parents are required to pick-up their child(ren) in the afternoon for dismissal. MOSAIC Students can access bus transportation at their neighborhood bus stop. The bus will take MOSAIC students to their home school where they will then board a shuttle bus to MOSAIC. Please follow the link below for your family’s neighborhood stop and time.

Below are the bus routes for each individual school:

Mehlville School District Bus Routes

Beasley and Blades Bus Transportation

Students in the Beasley and Blades attendance area will catch the MOSAIC shuttle bus at their home schools. The MOSAIC shuttle bus for Blades students will arrive at Blades’ front parking lot at 8:45am. I would arrive five minutes earlier than 8:45am. Beasley students will catch the MOSAIC shuttle bus also at 8:45am in Beasley’s front parking lot. Plan to arrive a few minutes early as well.

Y-Care

Y-Care is once again available for MOSAIC students for before and after school care. Before school begins each morning at 6:30am in MOSAIC’s gym. After-school care provides supervision from the end of school until 6:00pm. As we shift to a blended model, Y-Care will only be available for K-2 students Tuesday through Friday. For more info, please contact Ashley Reinhardt at Ashley.Reinhardt@gwrymca.org.

MOSAIC Recognition

I would like to encourage our families to submit a MOSAIC Recognition Form to give a shout out to a MOSAIC student or staff member.  I read submissions each day for morning announcements. It is a great way to begin the day!
