General Information

  • Remote Learning Continues through January 28

    As announced on October 16, the Kent School District will remain in remote learning for the first semester of this year through January 28.

    We made this decision primarily based on the data that the COVID activity rates in the KSD community remain higher than King County overall and continue to stay above the maximum level the Department of Health has set for when schools may safely reopen for in-person learning.
