A Message from our Principal

Dear KMS Parent/Guardians

We are thrilled to continue to work with you and your children this school year at KMS. Please be at school, “Miss a day, miss a lot!” We need your child here each day on time at 7:55 a.m. Breakfast is served before. Please plan around having your child here every day and make appointments outside of school hours if possible. KMS will be very strict on attendance/tardies and will make calls and home visits if problems occur. In fact, if your child is not in school and you haven’t notified us, you’ll get a phone message and e-mail by 10:15 a.m. School is like a job; a child might not love it each day but is expected to tolerate it. However, it is the school’s responsibility to make sure we have a safe and academically-stimulating environment where students want to come and learn.
