Lead Learner Highlights

What an amazing start to the school year! We have hit the ground running and students and staff are building relationships and immersing themselves into learning. It was wonderful to end our 2nd day at Gabriella's Scoop Night and see so many KP staff and families there supporting this great cause. I want to thank all of our families for your support in helping with the successful opening to the school year. From the Summer Blast Kick off (thank you KP PTO), to the staff opening days, the energy has been amazing.

Safety First

School Start Times:

The first bell rings at 7:40am. Due to a lack of supervision, students are not permitted in the building prior to this time unless they have a schedule meeting with a staff member or are participating in a morning intramural activity.

Morning Drop off:

Parent/Guardian drop-off happens in the back of the building in the circle at the Mohawk Drive entrance at the back of the school. There will be adults there to usher students to their appropriate team area.

For the safety of our students and to expedite bus arrivals, cars will not be allowed in the morning circle from 7:40am-8:05am. Cars with a special mobility pass for students will be permitted by security when the pass is presented. Such passes are distributed by the nurse or the Department of Motor Vehicles. Please call 860-929-5260 if you believe your child will require such a pass. Thank you.

Afternoon Dismissal:

Buses leave from the front and the back of the school. There is a complete listing of the bus locations posted around the building to assist students.
