Message from Mrs. Carey!

Dear KES families,


Happy Thursday! Our second week back has gone just as well as the first week! Students are in their routines and rocking their "back in person" learning!


Fall is upon us and with that comes "fun" germs, colds, and allergies. Please ensure that you are checking your child for signs and symptoms each morning, prior to sending them to KES. We want to keep all of our students healthy and happy this school year. If your child has seasonal allergies, please acquire a doctor's note so that we are aware of this and can address it accordingly. Based on the information made available to us, it will assist our school nurse in determining next steps with our QACPS quarantine protocol.


Along the same lines of health topics...if you are interested in having your child participate in the Flu Mist, please complete the "fillable" forms below and return to our KES office. Paper copies were also sent home with all students. Please note that these are due, no later than September 17th, 2021. We will confirm the date the Flu Mist will be administered once we have a date scheduled with the local Health Department.


We have a ton of upcoming events! Special shout-out to our amazing PTA for planning and organizing some of the events! We couldn't do it without their support! Additionally, there is a Q&A flyer on the upcoming MCAP fall testing. Specific dates for your student/grade are listed below:
