We would like to give our parents, families, and visitors a heads-up that our KES front doors have been equipped with updated features and you may notice some differences when you visit our school during the day.

Starting tomorrow, Friday 11-16-2018, school day visitors will be able to enter into the interior vestibule within the front doors, without being "buzzed in." 

Visitors then will use the "call button" located on a small device inside the vestibule to be greeted by a member of our office staff. The office staff member will then be able to "buzz" you into the office area, so you can conduct your visit.

We have easy to follow signs located at our main entrance with helpful prompts and we will work to ensure that visitors have a positive experience when arriving at school. Feel free to ask us if you have any questions and we will help you.

Winter Weather Wear

The weather is getting colder, and students are getting cold when they are at recess.  For your child's health and safety, please help him/her dress appropriately for winter weather conditions. Coats are required until the outdoor temperature reaches 60 degrees.  Boots, hats/hoods, gloves, and snowpants (K-2) are required to play during the winter months whenever snow is visible on the ground.  3rd-5th graders do not need to wear snowpants, but are required to wear boots or they will have a blacktop only recess.  During the lunch recess period, students are playing outside for up to 30 minutes, therefore it is very important for them to dress warmly.
