Did You Know? Taking vacations during the school year can be convenient and fun for the family, however these lost days can cause children to miss valuable learning. Trips for pleasure are not considered to be a valid reason to miss school. Here’s How You Can Help Keep a copy of the school calendar and make sure that you schedule your vacations during the year in a way to make sure children miss as little school as possible. Winter Break (December), Mid-Winter Break (February) and Spring Break (April) are all great times to take trips during the school year. If you must take your child out early or bring them back late please contact your child’s teacher BEFORE you leave on the trip. Ask if there is work your child can complete before they leave for the trip. After the trip contact the teacher again to inquire what work needs to be made up. Please realize this may mean your child will have to stay after school to make up a test or lab experiment.
Our parent & community volunteers are vital to making Kent Elementary a wonderful and successful school. We encourage you to stop by our office to have your fingerprints done with Mr. Nicolas. Please keep in mind that the questionnaire needs to be filled out yearly and that the whole process can take 3 -4 weeks for completion. Please keep this in mind if you want to attend an upcoming field trip. Mr. Nicolas is available for fingerprinting, Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:15am - 11:00am. Please bring your picture ID with you.
