Hello PS 20 families!
We’re writing to update you on some details about the Mosaic program and registration for the coming year. The Mosaic afterschool program will be offered to grades Pre-K - 5, beginning on the first day of school, Monday Sept. 13th. The program will run from the end of school until 6 PM on school days, following the DOE calendar. (It will not operate on school holidays.) As we continue to fine-tune the details, you can always go to the Mosaic website for the latest information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. For now, here is some information that might be useful:
Registration: Registration for Mosaic will open September 1st. Make sure to create a user profile on Sawyer, our registration platform, if you haven't done so already. (If you have outstanding credit from Spring 2020, it should be in your account as a gift balance.)
What will Mosaic be like? Our program will look a little different this semester. Covid restrictions temporarily prevent us from offering outside vendor enrichment. But don't worry - we have exciting (and safe!) enrichment activities for your children, developed by Ms. Eubanks and her amazing staff. We will be outside as much as possible, and students will be grouped by grade as they work on activities that include STEAM projects, theatrical movement, and sports. When parents sign up, they will sign up by day rather than by picking a particular activity.
Safety: Mosaic programs will follow current NYC Department of Education and NYS Department of Health guidelines on public health safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic, including guidelines surrounding the use of face masks for students and staff, physical distancing, handwashing, sanitation and ventilation of spaces, and vaccination of staff. Students will be outside as much as possible, and pick-up procedures will be outside at the end of the day.
Reach out with any questions!
Mosaic Director Jestina Eubanks and the Mosaic Committee
