Weekly updates from Mr. Brandon

A Note from Mr. Brandon:

KLA Families,

We are so excited to be starting the school year with all of our students in both our remote learning and in person learning environments. This is the moment we have all been waiting for since last March. We miss getting the opportunity to interact with our students on a daily basis, hearing their stories, seeing their smiles and watching them master that tough concept. We have spent hundreds of hours preparing for tomorrow and I feel very confident in our plans ability to meet the safety, health, wellness and academic needs of our learning community. Our plan is not perfect as we are preparing for uncharted territory, but it is the best we can prepare with the information we have at this point. As we get into the school year we ask for your patience, flexibility and on-going communication to allow us to be our best for students and community. We've got this and I can't wait to return to a school full of laughter, smiles and joy tomorrow.

Get ready for the best year yet!


David Brandon

New Dismissal Procedure for AK-5th Grade Students

Dismissal Procedure

New Information from KLA

Preparing for the First Day of School:

  • Students can start arriving at 8:30 and will wait on the playground in their assigned cohort. We will have staff available to help them find their location.
  • Students must wear a mask when walking on school grounds to get to their spot.
  • Students will enter the building at 8:40. Teachers will walk their students the first couple of days.
  • All students must be in their classrooms by 8:50.
  • Students dismissal starting at 2:05: Walkers at 2:05, car riders 2:10, bus riders 2:20.
  • All walkers and car riders dismiss out the front doors.

Friday Early Dismissals:

Every Friday will continue to be an early dismissal at 2:20.

Building Arrival and Dismissal Procedure:

Arrival- Students will be dropped off using the circle loop in the staff parking lot on the north side of the school. This week we will need to be careful to drive around the construction dumpers. Staff will be available to make sure kids get to their spots safely. Students may start arriving at 8:30. All students arriving at 8:49 or later must enter at the main entrance.

Dismissal- Watch the new dismissal procedure video above. Parents must stay in their cars when picking up their students to limit exposure to other students and staff. We ask for your patience as we refine this new procedure to keep everyone safe.

Building Visitors/Family Access:

Due to COVID19 and how hard we are working to limit potential exposure during a pandemic, we will not be allowing families or visitors into the building except on rare, individualized circumstances. Please call the main office or buzz the front door and a staff member will come to you.
