Dear KMS Families


Thank you for all you have done to support your students’ education this year! We express this with the greatest sincerity. What families have done - and will continue to do as we move forward through this landscape with many unknowns still ahead, has taken and continues to take courage, strength and love beyond measure. The school and district are working hard to develop safe and educationally strong programs for the summer for students who need extra support, into the fall and throughout the 2020-2021 school year.


I would like to personally thank you. I am retiring at the end of this month. I cannot begin to tell you how much I have loved helping to lead KMS this year, and to work with extraordinary staff and faculty who have dedicated so much blood, sweat and tears. Most especially, it was a hoot getting to know your children. Their thoughts, solutions, stories, and sense of humor are profound, endearing, and hilarious. They have so much to offer now and into the future. I have loved each one of them, and I would therefore appreciate your giving your’ a big hug for me. I will miss you all.


Please take a look at the important announcement below. Melissa Benevides, secretary extraordinaire, has transformed family communications this year, and helped make us all (especially me) look really good.


Have an awesome summer.


Remember: be safe, be well - and Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Ready to Learn

B E R E L E N T L E S S

As always, with love,


Dr. Burns

Any personal items not collected during this week will be donated to local charities. We ask all families to respect social distancing (6ft space) and to wear face masks.
