Family Conferences are next week!

We are thrilled to be back together again! Family conferences are next week and we can't wait to see our Kegonsa students and families.

A few things you should know before coming to your student's welcome back family conferences (students and families)

  • Masks are required for all visitors (adults and children 2 and up)

  • School supplies. If you have been able to supply shop already, conferences are a great time to drop off materials with your child's classroom teacher

What to expect during your 20-minute conference.

During the 20-minute Meet and Greet time, you will have time to get to know your child's teacher and hear a bit about what we will be up to this year. While in your conference your student will also take part in a few brief assessments. When finished, please make sure to get your child's picture taken in the gym.

We look forward to meeting you and your student! - Erin and the Kegonsa Team

Arrival and Departure: No Parents/Family in the building during arrival/departure

While we had hoped to return to more business, as usual, we are again going to use last year's procedures with arrival and dismissal. Parents/Guardians will continue to drop off and wait for their children outside the building. Teachers and assistants will be in full force ready to help all students find their classrooms. We promise to take good care of them. Thank you for your continued trust.

Student Arrival

Please do not send your child(ren) early or arrive late.

BUS ARRIVAL: Students arriving by bus will enter the building at 7:35 a.m. All students will enter the building at 7:35 and proceed to their classroom. If you have any questions regarding transportation, please call 608-877-5062


Kindergarten and 1st-grade students should be dropped off at the west circle driveway (located near the K-2 wing of the building). Kindergartners will enter through door #3 which will have an orange sign and First graders will meet their teachers outside door #4.

2nd - 5th-grade students should be dropped off at the main entrance drive starting at 7:35 a.m. They will enter through door #1. Students MAY NOT be dropped off earlier than 7:35 a.m.

Notes about drop-off:

  • *If you have a k-1 student and a 3-5 student you can drop off all your students at the main entrance.

  • Staff members in both circle parking lots will greet your children at their car door to ensure their safe arrival into the building.

End-of-Day Procedures

  • All students will exit the building at 3:00

  • Students taking the bus will exit with assistance from staff members through the playground doors.

  • Students in K-1 will exit the building with their teachers through the West Entrance doors.

  • Students in 2-5 being picked up by car will leave through exit 1 and will stand by the sign that says “car pick up.” Staff will call them to cars when their pick-up pulls up in the circle.

  • Students being met by parents on foot will meet at the sign by exit 1 that says “walkers”.

*k/1 siblings may join 3-5 students in the main entrance. Please communicate the plan with the teacher of the youngest sibling.
