Order Form for Bobcats Against Bullies Shirt

Order by September 22, 2023. KES will join schools nationwide, pledging our support against bullying by wearing orange on October 19th.

Welcome back! We are so excited about the 2023-24 school year. At KES, we believe that every kid can learn, and every kid can grow. We are excited to announce that we have a highly qualified staff to work with your students. All staff members are returning for the 2023-24 school year. Carol Dweck makes a good point, test scores and measures of achievement tell you where a student is, but they don't tell you where a student could end up. At Kerens Elementary, we never give up on kids. Children blossom academically, socially, and emotionally at different times. We will meet them where they are and help them grow. Our team looks forward to working with the community and families to ensure growth for every student. "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." --Helen Keller

Absence Procedures


Regular school attendance is essential. Absences from class may result in serious disruption of a student’s education. The student and parent should avoid unnecessary absences. State law requires that a student who is at least six years of age, or who is younger than six years of age and has previously been enrolled in first grade, and who has not yet reached their 19th birthday, shall attend school, as well as any applicable accelerated instruction program, extended-year program, or tutorial session, unless the student is otherwise excused from attendance or legally exempt.

90% Attendance Rule in Texas:

To receive credit for class, a student is required to attend school for at least 90% of the days the class is offered (Section 25.092, TEC). Students will excessive absences may restore credit through after school instructional opportunities schedule by the Elementary School.

For more detailed information, access the student handbook from the KISD website.

If you have questions regarding your students attendance, you may contact KES Truancy Prevention Facilitator, Mr. Monte Huggins.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Safety

Thank you so much for helping us maintain a safe environment. We appreciate your patience as new families learn the procedure and as new teachers learn student and family names. Following a few simple guidelines will help us out. 1) Have your car tag clearly displayed in the front window for identification. 2) Please stay in your car at all times. 3) Keep your student in the car at drop-off until an adult can assist them. 4) When you pull into the horseshoe area, form one line during drop-off and two lines during pick-up. 5) Pull all the way up to the designated area so we can load multiple cars. 6) If you need to visit with school personnel, please park and come inside the building. You must enter through the main entrance.
