SEASONAL REMINDER

Please be sure your child comes to school in clothing that is appropriate for outdoor play. Open toe shoes and flip-flops are inappropriate shoe attire for our playground area; students may be asked to refrain from certain activities. (see page 12 of the 2014-2015 Family Handbook)

WALK TO SCHOOL FRIDAYS

In celebration of good exercise and our wonderful KES community, we’d like to encourage KES students to walk  (or ride their bike) to school on Fridays (weather permitting).

If students can’t walk or ride their bike, please have them take their regular bus route so that there are fewer cars dropping off at KES and, therefore, increased safety for our walkers and riders

As in the past, there should be extra police presence on Fridays — so there should be a crossing guard at New Street and Valley Road on Fridays.

As a reminder, there is always a crossing guard at: Huntville & Cherry; Huntville & Glen Ridge; Huntville & South; and Huntville & New Street.  We hope to see many KES students walking to school on Fridays from now until the end of the school year!!

PS – We’d love students to walk/ride to school as often as possible at this time of year – it doesn’t just have to be on Fridays.
