Here We Are!
Here we are finishing our 3rd week of school for 2020-2021! We thought we were ready for a “normal” week of in-person and remote teaching but then the SMOKE came along and changed all of our plans. Thank you for your overwhelming support in our decision to go fully remote due to the health and safety of our students. King’s community – you are awesome!

ClearPass
Thank you for your continued diligence in filling out your ClearPass information each morning!

  • If one of your students has a failed “Red Pass”, then that student and all siblings must stay home until the situation is cleared up with the school.
  • Parents, you will receive a call with further instruction from our COVID-19 advisor, Lindsey Sharp.

Kindergarten Carpool
Thank you for your cooperation in providing a safe environment for drop-off and pick-up. We appreciate your patience.

Grades 1-6 Carpool
Do you want to avoid waiting so LONG in carpool? You can solve that problem by coming later and joining the 2nd wave of cars. Yesterday all of carpool was done by 2:50pm – that’s 30 minutes from beginning (2:20pm-2:50pm) to the last car exiting! If you are waiting an hour before carpool/dismissal even begins, you have arrived on campus too early!

Parent Information Night
Since we cannot do in person Parent Information Nights, we will be providing virtual PINS for K-6 families towards the end of September or early October.
