Happy Monday MOSAIC Families,
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I also hope everyone is staying warm in this very frigid weather. Daytime highs will hover around the twenty-degree mark all week. Students will go outside for recess if the temperature (including the wind chill) remains above twenty degrees. Be sure to dress your child in warm clothes this week and next.
Please join us tomorrow evening for our February PTO meeting beginning at 6pm. Dr. Gaines will present information about Prop S and its impact on MOSAIC and the school district. We will also have a presentation from our specialists teachers (PE, music, art, library, counselor).
You can learn more about Prop S by reading the information below provided by our district.
How Prop S would impact MOSAIC Elementary School
The Mehlville School District Board of Education voted unanimously at its January meeting to place a zero tax rate increase bond issue measure on the ballot on April 6, 2021. The bond issue, called Proposition S, would fund projects to improve student safety and accessibility and complete deferred maintenance without increasing the tax rate.
If passed, Prop S would fund security entrances at every school; improved accessibility for individuals with disabilities; heating, cooling and ventilation upgrades; restroom renovations and additions; parking lot improvements; roof replacements and other projects.
Prop S would generate $35 million to complete these projects without raising the current tax rate. Voter approval would allow the district to transfer 12 cents of the existing tax rate to address facility needs at all schools within Mehlville School District at no additional cost to the taxpayer.
At MOSAIC, Prop S would fund a front security entrance that includes an exterior and interior door. Visitors are admitted through the exterior door and must check in with a staff member immediately upon entry before gaining access through the interior door to the rest of the school. Additionally, Prop S would fund two elevators to make our building fully accessible.
View the conceptual renderings for an illustration of what the completed projects might look like. Final construction is subject to change based on each project’s engineering and structural analysis.
Visit the Prop S website to see all the projects Prop S would fund and learn how we can complete these projects without raising the tax rate.
