Kendallvue Community Updates
April 16 - 30, 2023
All students are curious, creative, and confident learners!
It was so wonderful to see the warm weather this week. Of course, it would not be Colorado without a good snow storm after 80 degree weather! It was hard to have an inside recess day on Friday. As the weather warms up, please remember to send your student with a water bottle.
We have one more week of CMAS. This week 5th grade will test in Science T-Th at 10:00AM. Our 3rd graders will test in ELA T-Th at 10:50AM. Please make sure students are here this week. We always leave extra days for make-ups, but it helps when we do not have to do a lot of make up testing. Our testing continues with the Flex testing days in May. Teachers will be reaching out if they have not already.
We have lots of changes coming up. I will be continue to introduce new staff as we hire. We are excited to hire additional staff for the next school year. I will have more updates during our SAC and PTA meetings on May 3rd. Our construction begins on May 31 and they will be busy working on updating the front office and throughout the building. We are all excited to see the finished work in August.
As always, thank you for your support of our school. I look forward to seeing you all around the school now that it is warming up!

Front Office Updates
- The 2023/2024 school year is right around the corner. If your child needs medications, over-the-counter medications, herbals, homeopathic, ChapStick or even lotion, we need a signed Medication Agreement or Standing Order Form signed from your physician. All medication agreements expire June 30th. After, June 30th is a great time to visit your pediatrician to get your medication agreement signed for the upcoming school year! See the attachments if needed.
Mornings & Afternoons In the Parking Lot
- Thank you James (the stop sign guy) for being such a presence at our crosswalk every morning. Our morning routines would not be as safe without James helping families and kids at the crosswalk.
- Be on the look out for a video detailing the "dos and don'ts" of our traffic routines for morning drop off and afternoon pickup. A video will be presented on our website and this newsletter before we leave for summer vacation.
School Safety & Parking Lot Updates
- Our first lunch recess starts at 11:00 with our Kindergarten students. At noon our 2nd grade students are on the playground. Please keep younger children off the playground during the school day. We want to ensure the safety of these younger children and also make sure the paraprofessionals outside are only monitoring the Kendallvue students.

Jeffco Schools Updates
- In partnership with ENDCAN (The National Foundation to End Child Abuse and Neglect), Jeffco aims to bring awareness to National Child Abuse Prevention Month. ENDCAN is unique because it takes a multi-disciplinary approach to end child abuse and neglect. The foundation brings together experts from diverse fields, including psychology, social work, law enforcement, education, and healthcare. This approach ensures that every aspect of child abuse prevention and intervention is addressed, from identifying and reporting child abuse, to providing support and resources to survivors and their families.
