  • Bullying: Recognize it... Report it..... Refuse it

    We take bullying very seriously at Kent Elementary. Please report bullying to a teacher, any trusted staff member, the counselor or the administrators. We recently acquired the Second Step Bullying Prevention Curriculum designed by the Committee for Children and our counselor has been teaching lessons in all classrooms throughout the school. The lessons teach students how to recognize, report and refuse bullying behavior. The school district’s policy is Kent Elementary’s policy. To review the district-wide policies on bullying and harassment and to file a report please go to the following link:

  • Early Release at Kent Elementary

    The last 20 minutes of the school day (2:48 to 3:08): to reduce interruptions and to protect the academic environment in classrooms, the office WILL NOT CALL into the classrooms, during the last 20 minutes of the school day for early release. If your child needs to be released from class early for an appointment, please pre-arrange early release by sending a note to the office in the morning. Thank you for your cooperation.
