A Message from the Principal

Good evening, Kenmore Families!

It is hard to believe we are just a week and half away from Winter Break.  I hope your plans are coming together to enjoy some time at home with your kids.  As you help your students prepare for their transition away from school, it is important to set the expectation of some sort of academic work during the two weeks.  Help your student pick out a book to read or some other type of activity that will engage their academic thinking.  Your students have worked hard to build their skills in this area and will need some support to keep those skills strong.  

Please make sure to check ParentVue before the end of this week, so you know if you need to reach out to teachers, if your student is struggling.  Breaks are a wonderful time to get caught up with missing work or assignments, if need be.  There is still time, before the end of this semester, to get caught up if your student has fallen behind.  If you have questions, please contact your student’s teachers directly or let us know in the KMS Office how we can help.  

As always, we appreciate your partnership in educating your students.  Please give us a call or send us an email with any questions, concerns or celebrations you want to share.  

I wish you all a very Happy Holiday season, however you and your family celebrate this time of year.  

Go Colts!!

Bryan Stutz
Principal

From the Nurse  

Immunizations for School

You might have received a "pre-exclusion letter" saying that your student is missing immunizations and will not be allowed to attend school after a certain date.

PLEASE TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!

Because of a come-back of some contagious diseases like measles or whooping cough, immunization records rules have been tightened. Schools now need MEDICALLY documented immunizations, we cannot accept parent provided records anymore. Your student's record must be entered in the WA state immunization registry (WAIIS) by their doctor. 
If you have not received a letter, your child’s record is complete.
Please call the nurse, Manuele Mayer, for any question at 425-408-6406.
