We would like for you to nominate any teacher whom you consider to be an outstanding and effective educator and whom you or your child has had as a teacher. This person must have completed 5 years of teaching with at least 2 of them having been in USD 232. If there is a USD 232 educator whom you believe to be outstanding and deserving of special recognition, please fill out the nomination form at www.usd232.org/ktoy . This form needs to be completed by 4:00 PM on January 13, 2023.
Planning on attending the holiday party?
We want to make you aware of some safety procedures
we are putting into place to keep everyone safe!
While meeting with Rob Moser, Coordinator of Safety and Transportation for De Soto Unified School District #232, we created a safety plan to help us navigate days when we have a high number of parents entering and exiting the building during school hours.
Moving forward we will:
Maintain a single point of entry and exit for all parents/guardians in the front entry.
No classroom doors, or doors near a classroom, are used for the entry and exit of parents during events.
We will use a Google Form to create an RSVP list for parents/guardians attending parties.
We will also only allow parents/guardians to enter during this time since space is limited.
Reminder: siblings are not allowed to attend party days with their parents.
If the party ends at a time of the day were you would like to check your student(s) out for the day, you will do that in the front entry as you leave. We also ask that you get your student(s) from their classrooms instead of having them called down through the office. Just be sure you connect with your child’s teacher so they know they have left with you.
Kindergarten-2nd Grade: 9:00-9:30
3rd Grade-5th Grade: 11:00-11:30

Lunch Reservations: UPDATE! Please Read!
We look forward to welcoming parents and guardians to our Parent Cafe Space now that the weather is getting cooler. Please use the link below to sign up.
Due to limited space, we have to limit the number of sign-ups! But, just like before, you are always welcome to take your students outside to our picnic tables in the courtyard, sit at one of our benches or tailgate at your car if there isn't space inside or if it happens to be a day we don't have indoor seating!
Since it has been awhile, we ask that if you are making reservations, that you bring lunch with you. We order lunch foods based on typical numbers for hot lunch and don't usually have enough to serve extra lunches to incoming parents.
Even if you are bringing more than one person with you to eat with your student, you only need to sign up for one spot! We have room to at our tables for 4 per student sign up.
