Dear MOSAIC Families,

I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend. Just a reminder that school will not be in session this Wednesday through Friday for Thanksgiving break. I imagine Thanksgiving will look different for many of us this year. With the unfortunate rise in positive cases in our area, I do hope all families take necessary precautions to remain safe and healthy this season.

Dr. Gaines announced last Friday afternoon that the Mehlville School District will remain virtual following the Thanksgiving Break through Wednesday, December 2nd. School will return to in-person learning on Thursday, December 3rd. Monday, November 30th will be a typical virtual Monday with school hours from 9am-2:20pm. Virtual school hours for Tuesday, December 1st and Wednesday, December 2nd are 9:10am-3:55pm. Students in both cohorts will be expected to participate on December 1st and 2nd. Although these two days are virtual, students will not be on their device for the entire day. Students will have time to work independently on their school work and will have screen breaks periodically throughout the day. MOSAIC teachers will be reaching out to their students’ families with more specifics about the schedule for December 1st and 2nd.    

*MOSAIC@Home students will continue to follow their typical daily schedule.

Kindergarten Lottery for the 2021-2022 School Year

MOSAIC will once again host a virtual information night on Monday, December 7th at 6pm for families who have an incoming kindergarten student for the 2021-2022 school year. Families will have the opportunity to meet the kindergarten team and learn what make kindergarten so special at MOSAIC Elementary School.

Mehlville@Home Registration

Mehlville@Home registration is now open. Families who currently have a child in the program and new families who wish to enroll their child for second semester should follow the link below.

Chromebook Repair

Although the district provided Chromebooks are very durable, there are times where something can go wrong with them. Please reach out to the district’s IT office at msdchromebookhelp@gmail.com if your child’s Chromebook is having issues.  

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!
