Dear Mosaic Families,

In an effort to maintain safe arrival and dismissal procedures for our students and staff, we are asking families to NOT use Kingsbridge Drive for an impromptu kiss & ride line. This is causing unsafe conditions for both our students and staff, our bus riders, for families that live on/near Kingsbridge Drive, and for student walkers that use Kingsbridge Drive on their way to school. We encourage everyone to use our main kiss & ride line, on Mosaic school property, for morning arrival and afternoon dismissal. We have been notified by the Fairfax County Police Department that tickets may be administered for cars/drivers posing unsafe conditions on Kingsbridge Drive.

Thank you for your continued support, and for helping us keep our students and staff here at Mosaic Elementary safe.
