Safety Protocols

Safety will be the #1 priority for the 2020-2021 school year.

Students, staff and visitors must use face coverings that cover the mouth and nose. 

Face masks will be required when 6 feet of social distancing is difficult or not possible.

Students will remain within their cohort (bubble) throughout the day as much as possible, and should not interface with other cohorts.

Safety and sanitation products will be accessible in every classroom, meeting room, eating area and office.

Signage will be posted throughout the campus with proper safety protocol and detailed instructions for social distancing.

Staff will be trained and students will be instructed on how to be as safe as possible while on school grounds.

Parent Expectations

We request that parents take the temperature of their children each morning before school. If the child has a higher than normal temperature, then the child should remain at home.

We request that parents provide their children with two masks everyday.  If the child does not have a mask, the school will provide one.

If a student displays symptoms of an illness, he or she will be escorted to the health room for a temperature check. If the health aide determines that the student is ill and needs to be sent home, a parent will be immediately notified to come to the school and pick up the child.

We request that you help educate your child as much as possible with respect to the changing times,  especially with reminders about the importance of safety protocol.KCS Elementary School has an average enrollment of 220 students.
