Any balance accrued before the application is approved, is the families responsibility.

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.
