Student Drop off/Pick up

When dropping off or picking up your student in the Riesling Rd. drop off area, please remember a couple of important safety procedures. First, only have students get in or out of your vehicle in the clearly designated area in front of the office (the curb is painted yellow). Second, please pull all the way forward. This is necessary for the safety of all and to keep a clear fire lane as mandated by law. Thank you for your help in keeping Kenilworth safe!

Contacting your child's teacher

The best way to get in touch with your child’s teacher is via email. A directory of email addresses is available on the website and is a much better option than calling given the limitations of the voicemail system.

Safeway (Leghorn Marketplace)

The community of proprietors at the Safeway shopping center is requesting your/our support in educating students about appropriate consumer behaviors. Unfortunately, some students have not been respectful to employees when they have been asked to clean up after themselves and to use appropriate language while in their establishments or just outside. Some have even gone so far as to cause some minor property damage. At Kenilworth, through our life skills lessons, we will review appropriate public behaviors, but students will also need reminders from home as well. If your student frequents the Safeway shopping center, please talk with them about proper consumer behaviors. Thank you for your support!

Petaluma City Schools Discipline Matrix

Dear Kenilworth students and families,

Welcome to another school year! We look forward to seeing you on our campus.

Please know that student well-being and safety is our priority and we maintain high expectations and hopes for all of our students. At the start of each year, we also like to make stakeholders aware of possible consequences for inappropriate behaviors, should they occur. Attached you will find our current discipline matrix, which serves as a guideline for many disciplinary situations, although it is not an exhaustive list.

While we will use this matrix to guide our decisions around student disciplinary infractions, site and district stakeholders will concurrently engage in continued review and revision of various guidelines to best meet the needs of our school community; increase our offerings of counseling and educational services around tough issues that face our community, such as vaping; and explore effective restorative practices.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about student safety and wellness on our campus this year.
