Good Afternoon MOSAIC Families,

This week’s email blast has important information from our cafeteria manager, our school librarian and from our PTO. Please take a few moments to read through the entire email as we also give details about a fun Halloween event on October 29th hosted by our PTO.

A note from our cafeteria

Beginning Oct. 20th, MOSAIC’s cafeteria will now be serving two main entrees each day for both cohorts of students. Meals offered to students on one day will be available the next day for students. This will provide students more choice in their meal selection.

Turkey sandwich and Sunbutter & Jelly will still be offered daily.

We want to hear from our families regarding their child’s experience in the cafeteria and their opinion about the food that is offered. Please follow the link below to fill out a brief survey on the topics mentioned above.

October 5, 2020 – Dr. Clark Email

Dear MOSAIC Families,

Tomorrow will be an exciting day for our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students and staff. We will once again be welcoming these students in our studios for the first time in more than six months. Excited is not even the correct word to use! Amazing! Thrilled! Ecstatic! These words express our feelings as we prepare for tomorrow.  

Please take the time to read the important messages below about arrival and dismissal for tomorrow. I have also included important messages from our school counselor, our PTO and other district departments.

A Note from Our School Counselor

October is Bully Prevention Month.  The students do an amazing job of being upstanders and not bystanders.  Lets celebrate World Day of Bully Prevention by wearing blue.  Since we will not be at school Monday, October 5th, wear blue Tuesday or Wednesday to remind ourselves to be kind to one another.

Changes to Grab-and-Go meals beginning Oct. 6

Changes are being made to our free Grab-and-Go meal service as more students return to our buildings. Beginning next week, meals will be available for pick up from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at all district schools on Mondays and at Mehlville High School and Oakville High School only on Tuesdays-Fridays. This change will allow our elementary and middle school cafeteria staff to focus on preparing meals for on-campus students and following our procedures designed to keep students safe during lunch. Wednesday, Oct. 7 will be the final day we are able to offer meal delivery since our bus drivers will be running additional routes. 

While meals are free for all children 18 and under living in Mehlville School District, we ask that you please complete the School Meals Pickup Request form each week to help our staff know how many meals to prepare. Menus are available on the School Food and Nutrition Services website

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.
