The King’s Elementary Christmas Star

The King’s Elementary Christmas Star has arrived!  It is positioned on the chimney of the main building.  As it shines brightly through the day and the darkness of night, may we all remember, Jesus is the Light of the World!

 Playground Update

The red safety pad replacements finally arrived and were installed yesterday!  Thank you to our Facilities Department!

 Replace Student Masks

Evaluate your student’s mask. Be sure to check the fit of the face covering/mask your child is wearing to school.  If it is loose or falls below the nose you need to purchase a new mask.  Mask protocol states that masks should be washed daily.  There should be 2-3 extra masks in your child’s backpack for emergencies.  Thank you!

Parents:  Follow Procedures Please!

  • Please follow protocols for early dismissal, appointments or picking up work due to absences at the office. When you are in the parking lot call the office.  Remain in your car.  We will walk your child and/or books and work out to you.  Thank you!
  • Afterschool pick-up – please do not park your cars and walk to pick up your students. We need you to follow protocol and go through carpool to pick carpool to pick up your child.  Carpools have been finishing by 2:50pm.

 Knight Hoops

Update:  Boys Knight Hoops was paused this year until local regulations and facility restrictions allow Basketball for our age groups, with an eye towards skills and drills at a future date.   Please watch the website www.knighthoops.com, Facebook, and Instagram (knight.hoops) for skills videos and opportunities to win a 2020 T-Shirt!

 Playground Supervisor Needed!

We are still looking for one additional Playground Supervisor.  The schedule is M, T, Th, F from 9:00 am-2:30 pm.  The pay is $13.50 per hour but the experience is priceless!  Call the office at 206-546-7260 or email mdelangen@kingsschools.org.

School Spirit Days

Mondays and Fridays are school spirit days whether students are on campus or remote!  Wear your school colors – red & white and celebrate our school!   Classes within their grade levels may compete to see who has the most school spirit!

 Office Communications

When you are emailing the office, please be sure to email Mrs. de Langen at mdelangen@kingsschools.org and Mrs. Kim Gillies at kgillies@kingsschools.org.

Any change in student pick-up at the end of the day needs to go through the office.  This is the only way to be sure your student gets the message.  Please call the office at  206-546-7258 by 2:00 pm.

 Medication at School

During the course of the school year, your child may need to take medication at school. A “Permission to Administer Medication Form” must be completed with a physician and parent signature. All medications, OVER-THE-COUNTER and PRESCRIPTION, require a completed form and must be in their original containers. Prescription medications, including inhalers, must have a prescription label. Please label OVER-THE-COUNTER medications with your student’s first and last name. Forms are available in the school office or on Parents Web.
