BE WISE STEM DAY FOR GIRLS IN GRADES 5-8
Be WISE Camp has arranged for Alexandra Forsythe and her R2-D2 (she built) to come and do a presentation along with activities in circuit electricity. Camp will be on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Any girls interested should pick up a flyer and registration information in the office.
KMS SCHOOL DROP OFF PROCEDURES
Due to the traffic control medians in front of KMS, this added safety feature makes it very important that parents please follow our drop-off and pick-up procedures during our peak hours of 8:00 to 8:30 a.m. and 2:45 to 3:15 p.m. All parent traffic should plan to enter and exit KMS via the south entrance. Please maintain two lines of traffic to drop off and pick up students in the outer loop near our flagpole. The inner bus loop closest from the school is reserved for buses and emergency vehicles only during these hours. In addition, we would ask that during these peak times, our north entrance to the school, be reserved for buses and emergency vehicles only. With the new medians in the road, it is very difficult for buses to make the northbound left hand turn into the school when other vehicles are using that entrance. We will be very flexible with students the first few weeks of school in regards to tardies as we all learn to navigate these new traffic patterns. Thank you in advance for your help and patience.
Parents, please call the Attendance Hotline (718-8511) when a student is absent from school. Please call within one hour of the start of the school day.
LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY FOR AN APPOINTMENT
Please send a note with your child in the morning when they need to leave school early. Have your child stop by the Main Office before home base with the note. They will be issued a classroom passport that allows them to leave class in time to meet you in the Main Office prior to the appointment. Parents must sign out their children in the Main Office however; children returning to school after an appointment may sign themselves back into school once they are dropped off.
PARENT DROP OFF/STUDENT PICK UP OF PERSONAL ITEMS
We have grade level shelves in our Main Office to make it very easy for parents to drop off items that their children may need during the school day or after school. We ask that parents please label the item(s) or bag with your child’s name and drop it off on the shelves in the Main Office. Parents may text or email their children to let them know that the item is in the office.
Students who become ill or injured at school are to go to the Clinic to be evaluated. Please encourage your child to not phone or text a parent/guardian if they are not feeling well. In accordance with the Student Handbook, students who are ill or injured cannot be released from school until they have been evaluated in the Clinic and a parent/guardian or other emergency contact person is contacted for permission for the student to go home.
