Mosaic operates according to the Department of Education calendar from 2:40 – 6 p.m. on days when school is in session.

If schools have been cancelled or close early due to inclement weather or other emergencies outside of our control, Mosaic will not be in operation. Mosaic will send an email to parents in these extenuating circumstances immediately after we learn of any citywide school schedule announcements.

A revised schedule will be announced when Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled (half days)

In addition to increased outdoor time, beginning the week of May 26 we will hold a modified schedule of fun staff-led classes, which will be posted later in the semester. You will NOT have to re-register for those classes.

The official DOE Calendar may be accessed here.

5:00-6:00PM Free play until pick-up (we take the children to the schoolyard, weather and daylight permitting)

* NOTE: On Tuesdays, enrichment classes run from 4:00 – 5:30 due to mandated DOE scheduled meetings for teachers and use of classrooms.
