Preparing Students for Social & Emotional Success
Our school and classroom leaders create expectations for the year, build community with their students and families, and ensure all students have equal access to quality staff, courses, activities, services, and resources based on their individual needs. 

See what students and staff have to say about the importance of social emotional learning in our schools in this short video.
Are You Ready for Winter Weather?
In the next couple of months, we are likely to experience winter conditions . Here are some things you can do help keep our KSD community safe:

  • Make sure your student is dressed for cold weather. Resources are available if your student needs a winter coat or warm clothing.

  • Ask your school about safe walking routes, these are the areas at your school that will be shoveled or sanded if we have snow or ice.

  • Wear bright and highly visible clothing to help drivers see you as days get shorter and darker.

  • Keep warm clothing, a blanket or sleeping bag, snacks, and water in your car in case you get stuck or cannot get home.
