Social-Emotional Learning Packet for Covid-19 Closure

Please be sure to review the Social-Emotional Learning Packet to help your child have a better understanding of Covid-19 and strategies that they can use when they are feeling worried. We encourage parents to complete some of the activities together to help facilitate discussions about healthy social practices. What can be found in the Learning Packet? Strategies to help answer the question "What do I do if I'm feeling worried?", it also helps answer questions that students may have about Coronavirus, and it has some wonderful activities for students to do at home for their Social-Emotional well-being. The packet is in English and Spanish.

Principal's Message

Dear Kensington Students and Parents,

WELCOME BACK! I hope that this letter finds you and your loved ones healthy and well. It is hard to believe that summer vacation has ended, and it is time to begin another wonderful school year! This past school year has forced us all to adjust in many ways, and I want to thank all of you for being flexible and accommodating during COVID-19. I also want to thank you all for being great partners in learning during these uncertain times. Your cooperation and collaborative thinking has increased health and safety for our koalas, as well as stirred creative and efficient solutions to online learning. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, at the present, school life will be much different compared to what we have experienced in the past. However, we are committed to giving students experiences that will help them grow and feel a part of a community again. We have taken proactive measures to assist in the continued health and well-being of our students and staff. 

We will continue to work hard as we prepare our koalas for college and career opportunities. We appreciate your support as we strive to educate our students to be the best and excel in life. I look forward to working with you all. Let’s have a great 2020-21SY! 

Building the Brightest Future,

Maurice L. Cobb


School Uniforms

Hello KES Parents!
Please note that KES will not employ school uniforms for the 2021-22 school year. The results of our uniform survey indicates 53% of our parents are in favor of uniforms while 47% are not. We will revisit this topic in the future as interest grows. Thank you for all you do for our school and our Koalas!
Building Koala-ty Kids, Mr. Cobb 
P.S. Don't forget to register your child for the 2021-22 school year!
