Students are settling into routines here at KCS. It has been a pleasure to observe older students helping younger students with different tasks throughout the day. Many teachers have commented on the positive energy and high levels of student excitement. It's been a great way to start the year. This past week, we made good progress with improving our pick-up process. We appreciate your help with all that you are doing towards this effort as well. Please, remember to...
- have the seat on the passenger side of the car ready for your child, rather than having them go around to the driver's side of the car to get in
- stay in your car and let the school staff help your child to your car
- allow buses to cross the road to enter and exit the bus loop
- stagger your arrival times at school instead of having all parents picking up children arriving at 2:45 (If you don't have to be anywhere right away, maybe plan to be at school at 2:50 instead of 2:45. Keep in mind that your children aren't dismissed until 2:45 and it takes them a few minutes to get to the main entrance of the building. We would like to ask parents of students in grades K-2 to wait a few extra minutes to arrive at school, since the younger children typically take a little longer at the end of the day to gather their belongings and walk to the main entrance.)
