JUNE 2020 FAMILY LETTER for KES

June 4, 2020                                  

 Good evening, KES Families. 

 You are invited to KES for a curb side pick-up of your child’s belongings and drop-off of any library and classroom books. In addition, if you choose, you may take this opportunity to drop-off a card/gift for staff and faculty. At this time, we are not collecting any technology; there will be a separate process determined by the technology department regarding school devices. 

 Medication: Please contact KES Nurse, Sallyann Rozsa via email at srozsa@klschools.org by June 12 if you want your child’s medication returned to you at the time of curb side pick-up. Otherwise, medications will be stored in the Health Office until further notice. 

 We have organized the children’s belongings by youngest child. This means that if you have more than one child at KES, your children’s belonging will be distributed at the time designated for your youngest child. For example, if you have children in kindergarten, third grade, and fifth grade, all three of your children’s belongings will be given to you during the Kindergarten pick-up time and day.  

 Every one's safety continues to be our number one priority. Please know that during curb side pick-up/drop-off, social distancing will be maintained and masks will be worn. We respectfully ask that you do the same. AT NO TIME WILL VISITORS EXIT THEIR VEHICLE. 

 Please see the schedule for when your family is invited to curbside pick-up/drop-off:

 We thank you in advance for making every effort to be available for the curb side pick-up/drop-off time designated for your family, which will be extremely helpful in making the process run as smoothly as possible. However, if you are unable to be at KES at the designated time, please email (charris@klschools.org or kstambaugh@klschools.org) to let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your situation. 

  

Take good care, 

Cristy Harris, Principal and Kweon Stambaugh, Assistant Principal

WE APPRECATE ALL YOU DO !




For
the many different changes in your schedule and choices

For
the benefit of your students to help build their individual voices

the many lessons and memories achieved in your room 

For
you quickly having to learn how to teach through a zoom

For
switching to a curriculum that is completely online

For
knowing when to give the perfect emoji sign

For
adjusting and putting your own needs on hold 

For
keeping them your focus with a heart of gold

For
thinking of new ways to reach someone that needs an extra hand

 

With all the changes in these last months, we cannot thank you enough for the amazing lessons and efforts you
have put forth to keep our children learning and connected to the classroom they know and love.  For today and always, you are special to each student.  We want you to know how much you are appreciated near and far, in the classroom or on the computer screen. 
We will celebrate you again soon, but for today we hope you enjoy these words and signs from the students expressing their love and deep appreciation.
