November 9, 2020 – Dr. Clark Email

Dear MOSAIC Families,

We continue to experience beautiful fall weather as we quickly approach the middle of November. This affords us all the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. Please remember to take safety precautions when outside near other people. St. Louis County, and more specifically, the zip codes our district serve continue to see increases in positive Covid-19 cases. We want our MOSAIC students, staff and families to stay healthy!

Fall School Pictures

We will have fall pictures next week. Cohort A (A-K) will have pictures on Thursday, November 12th and Cohort B (L-Z) on Friday, November 13th. We ask that our MOSAIC@Home students join us between 9am-12 on Thursday, November 12th. MOSAIC@Home families can park on our top lot and walk their child to our exterior gym doors (located at the bottom of the steps from the top lot).  A MOSAIC staff member will greet you at the gym door and have you sign-in your child.  Parents/guardians will remain outside as their child is being photographed.  Be sure to wear your very best outfit next week for picture day!

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!
