Car Drop-Off and Pick-Up Information

Hello KES Parents!

Thank you for all your help as we strive to make this year a success! Please see a few reminders below that will help us achieve success as we Build Koala-ty Kids!

Reminders:

  • AM drop-off for PK-2 is at the back loop (3-5 allowed if they have younger siblings)
  • AM drop-off for 3-5 is at the front of the school
  • PM pick-up for Pk-3 is at the back loop (4th-5th graders allowed if they have younger siblings)
  • PM pick-up for 4-5 is on Buttone St.
  • Please make sure your child has his/her lunchbox, bookbag, and mask on to help move the car rider line along faster in the mornings. 
  • Please consider writing your child's name on 8.5x11 size paper for ease of PM pick-up
  • The front gates and back car-rider-loop gate opens at 7:10AM each morning. Gates close promptly at 7:35AM as this is when the late bell rings. Students will need to be brought to the front office to sign in as tardy at this time.
  • Outer car-rider lane (lane nearest the fence) is for grades Pk-2 students. Inner car-rider lane is for grades 3-5 students 
  • Thank you for all you do to support our school and our Koalas! You all are simply the best!!

Principal's Message

Dear Kensington Students and Parents,

WELCOME BACK! It is hard to believe that our summer vacation is over, and it is time to begin another wonderful school year! I hope that you and your family enjoyed precious times together as you made new memories over the summer. Despite the challenges of last year, we are looking forward to making new memories with you and your koala(s) as the 2022-23 school year gets underway.

Please note that there will be many opportunities and invitations sent to you throughout the school year to participate as valued members of our team. We believe that family connections help make our koalas successful! As we partner with you, our goal is to ensure the safety of all children and to support the individual academic growth and progress of each student at Kensington Elementary School. We will continue to work hard as we prepare our koalas for college and career opportunities.

Our theme this year is “A Rainbow of Possibilities.” We believe that learning, coupled with hard work, makes the impossible possible. I ask that you help support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

· Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s experiences

· Completes all assigned homework and classwork

· Reads daily to develop a love for reading and literacy

· Informs you if he/she needs additional support

· Display respect, responsibility, and a readiness to learn each day

I appreciate your support as we strive to educate our students to be the best and excel in life. I look forward to collaborating with you for the benefit of our children. I hope to see you all soon in the Kensington House! Let’s have a great 2022-23 school year! Go Koalas!

Building Koala-ty Kids,
Maurice L. Cobb
Principal
