    ASB cards are $30 and yearbooks are $80. Purchase them together for $100 and save $10. Students involved in Kentridge athletics and clubs are required to purchase an ASB card.

    There are three options for making a payment for an ASB card and a yearbook.

    The Kentridge PTSA plays a key role in making KR a wonderful place. Your membership and purchase of KR spirit wear are great ways to support the PTSA. Spirit wear and membership information will be readily available at KR’s Open House on September 14.


    Please check the school website for more information on parking passes in mid-August. From August 26 through September 3, juniors and seniors may park at Kentridge on a first-come, first serve basis. Once the lot is full, students will need to find alternate parking. Please be aware that The City of Kent has implemented a Residential Parking Zone in the Jason Lane, Shadow Run and Glencarin Div. 1 neighborhoods to the south of 208th. To avoid being ticketed or towed, please observe the zoning restrictions in these neighborhoods. As always, students are encouraged to carpool starting on the first day of school.

    Again, this School Year, ALL school fines must be paid in order to be approved for a sport during the 2022-23 school year and beyond. Families can check online to determine if the student-athletes have a fine and what the amount is.
