School/Hybrid Learning

A Message from the Principal

Good evening, 

I hope this enews finds you well and enjoying the last few days before Spring Break.  We are feverishly working to prepare for students to return to campus on the 19th.  Staff have been on campus today and will continue to be on campus tomorrow and Friday, in an effort to prepare classrooms for students once again.  I have talked with several staff (with my mask on and from a safe distance ) and every one of them expressed their excitement to be back on campus and preparing for students.  We hope your students are as excited as our staff.

This week you should have received two communications, an email Monday evening with details of our reopening, and a letter regarding which Hybrid group your student(s) have been assigned to went out last night.  If you did not see either of these communications, please check your junk folder, as both contain information you will hopefully find valuable.  Also, in an effort to keep you informed, our KMS re-opening webpage is live and can be accessed from the quick link button on our KMS homepage.  You will find additional information as it becomes available, and we will update it throughout our re-opening this Spring.  

I do want to thank all of you for your understanding and well wishes as we get ready to welcome students back to campus, unlike we have ever done before.  I feel good about our transition plans, but also know that some adjustments may need to happen as we bring kids back and see things live.  Know that we are opening schools with a primary filter being how to keep our students and staff safe, and doing so in an equitable manner, and will continue to use these as the lenses we look through.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Go Colts!!!

Bryan Stutz
