Dear Parents of KVMS Students,


 

It is that time of year where it is chilly in the morning. This is a reminder to please dress your children in layers. Mornings are cold and students are complaining that they are cold. Please send your child with warm coats, appropriate footwear for this time of year and hats and mittens to keep them warm during Paw Fit and morning recess.

 

Also, it is that time of year when you need to start checking your child’s hair for lice. Discuss with your children the importance of not touching heads together as well as not sharing items such as brushes, hats or other hair related items.

 

Regards,

Jaime Foster-Stewart

Brett Black

Breakfast

Our breakfast program is operating five days a week, and we are serving 100 plus students.  Students are enjoying items such as toast, bagels, english muffins, fruit, and dairy.  Many thanks to our parents, community volunteers, staff and students who help make this program possible.  

We would also like to thank those who have donated financially, we would not be able to provide this service without your support.

We are always looking for volunteers to help not only with this amazing program but with other school initiatives as well! Just remember you will need Policy 701 and a Criminal Record Check to complete the volunteer process. If you would like more information please call the school at 363-4717.

ARRIVAL/PICK UP

Arrival time/drop off: 7:55 am. Please do not drop your child off before 7:55 am as there is no duty teacher until 7:55 am.

Pick up: Kindergarten to grade 2 - 2:00 pm.                Grades 3 to 8 - 2:15 pm

Parents that come to pick up their child, must go directly to the office, sign their child out in our binder, located on our counter, and let the office know you are there to pick up your child. As per safety protocol, the office will then notify homeroom teachers/duty teacher.  These teachers will then direct your child, with their personal things, to meet you in the lobby.

First period begins at 8:30 sharp. Attendance is taken at 8:25 am. Therefore a student is considered tardy (late) after 8:25 am.

Safe Arrival Program: If your child is going to be absent for a day, please contact the office at 363-4717 to let us know that he/she will be absent.

Important Message

 All communications from the office will go home through School Messenger. This is a system that is accessed through both home phone, email and cell phone. Mr. Black and Mrs. Stewart will begin sending home a semi-weekly “Week at a Glance” to keep parents informed of what is going on at KVMS as well as important dates, etc. If you want email, please provide the school your email address. Text messages are also available. You must download the School Messenger App. This is an easy download for both Android and Apple phone products.

Legal Custody

To the parents who have legal custody arrangements: In order to ensure your wishes will be respected, we need a copy of the custody order to keep on file at the school.

Chase the Ace

The Lion’s Club has partnered with our school to help raise funds to renovate our track and to update technology for our students. Every Tuesday night, starting Oct. 15th, there will be a Chase the Ace at the Lion’s Club. You can buy tickets at Bird’s Store or the Zealand Grab and Go starting the week prior to the 15th. You can also buy the night of at the Lion’s Club from 6:00 until 7:30. However, you do not need to be present at the Lion’s Club to win. The bigger the pot each week the more the winner receives each week. Staff members will also be selling tickets and there will also be a ticket drop off box at the school office. Students will not be selling tickets, but we encourage families to help us raise some much-needed funds. All money raised will be to help complete our track (we are almost there!!!!) as well as upgrading our technology to give all our students 21st century learning opportunities. The Lion’s Club will be using their raised money for various community initiatives. $2.00 for 1 ticket or $3.00 for 5 tickets.
