KMS Parents and Guardians,
Although I am extremely proud of how KMS students, staff, and families have adjusted to remote learning, I think we can all agree that remote learning has altered our shared school experience this Spring. As we approach the end of the year it is necessary to make adjustments to our traditional end of year activities. Unfortunately, we will not be able to have the KMS Talent Show this year. However, we will still have grade-level awards. Grade level awards will be announced through a video that will be shared via email and social media on Wednesday, May 20th. Awards will be sent home along with student items on Wednesday, May 20th.
In addition to grade-level awards, the last week of school is a time we celebrate our 8th-grade class. We would still like to honor this outstanding group of students the best we can under the current circumstances. Currently, we are working on a video tribute that will highlight our 8th graders and their time at KMS. The video will be shared through email and social media on Wednesday, May 20th. We are also going to alter the previously communicated KMS Item Pick Up Plan so that 8th-grade item pick will occur at a time separate from regularly scheduled 6th and 7th grade pick up time.
8th-grade item pick up on will now occur on Wednesday, May 20th from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM at the bus lane on Bobcat Blvd. This change will allow more KMS staff and families to be present to celebrate and honor this outstanding group of kids. Although it is a small token of appreciation, we want the ability to give these students a proper goodbye and wish them well on their new adventures at KHS.
8th-grade families that are not available during this time can email me to set up a time.
Procedures for 6th and 7th-grade students and families will not change. 6th and 7th-grade families will also still have access to the evening pick up time.
Please note the following guidelines and map to ensure a safe and efficient process for all.
