Welcome Eleanor Riker to the Opal Team and the KP Community!
Attention all parents of students who walk to KP:
Please encourage your child to be safe and responsible when walking to school by using the crosswalk. We have received reports from drivers of unsafe behaviors that include crossing in the middle of the road right in front of cars, which creates an unsafe situation for the pedestrian and the driver. Thank you for encouraging students to be responsible.
