Dr. Clark Email – MOSAIC Elementary School – August 9th, 2022

Dear MOSAIC Families,

This week’s email contains a lot of important information that each family should review in preparation for our first day of school. Please take a few minutes to read this week’s email and feel free to contact me at 314-467-7901 or sclark@msdr9.org if you have any questions. 

Student Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

MOSAIC’s arrival and dismissal procedure will remain the same as last year. For our new families joining us this school year and anyone who would like to refresh their memory can view the 2022-2023 student arrival and dismissal video by clicking on the link below. 

Student Arrival and Dismissal Video

In the video, I mention each family will receive a row number for afternoon dismissal. Each family will receive their assigned row number at supply drop-off next week.

Carpooling

I want to encourage families to consider carpooling this school year. Carpooling reduces the amount of cars on the lot and the time it takes to dismiss.  Please fill out the carpool form listed below by Wednesday, August 17th only if you are interested in carpooling. This information will be shared in a PDF on Friday, August 19th through email to those who only filled out this document. Please contact the MOSAIC school office at 314-467-7900 as soon as possible once you make carpool arrangements with another family.

Carpool Form

Kindergarten Supply Drop-Off

We are asking for flexibility from our kindergarten families as we make a slight change to next week’s supply drop off. Instead of having supply drop off from 5-6pm, we have moved up the time from 4-5pm on Thursday, August 18th. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding!

Supply Drop-Off for 1st-5th Grades

A reminder to our 1st-5th grade families that supply drop-off will be on Wednesday, August 17th from 4:00-5:30pm. 

Before School and After School Care

Families can choose to utilize Y-Care as a before and after school care for their child. Hours for Y-Care are from 6:30am until the beginning of the school day and from the end of the school day until 6:00pm. Y-Care will take place in MOSAIC’s gym. The most convenient way to get to MOSAIC’s gym is to park in our front lot off Will Avenue and take the steps on the north side of the building to the gym doors. Students at MOSAIC can only attend Y-Care at MOSAIC and are not allowed to attend Y-Care in other Mehlville School District schools. You can contact Y-Care at 314-849-9622.

We will also have a local childcare provider transporting students to MOSAIC as well. Please make sure to notify your child care provider if you plan on utilizing their transportation services. Below is a list of child care providers that have committed to providing transportation to and from MOSAIC.

KinderCare – (314)892-1627 – 4105 Telegraph/Kingswood

You may want to contact your child’s daycare provider if they are not listed above. Again, this is the only provider that is committed to providing transportation for your child.
