From Superintendent Andrew Selesnick
Dear KLSD Community,

Next Wednesday, March 3, 2021, I will host a Superintendent's Coffee with a focus on latest guidance to schools from the CDC, developments in our region, and options for return to more full-time schooling.

As with past events, it will be most helpful to receive your questions in advance. You can submit them to questions@klschools.org

I will share the latest information we have and address as many of your question as possible. 

Until then, please be well.


Andrew Selesnick, Superintendent of Schools

Meadow Pond Elementary's second graders took a virtual field trip to the Museum of the American Revolution ... and much more.
