Kingsley Connection

A weekly newsletter from the Kingsley Administrative Team...

January 17, 2022

Dear Kingsley Families,

Brrr! We seem to have made it through the coldest point of the month. We are grateful for the sun that has been shining each day. Please continue to have your child dress accordingly with snowpants, boots, and gloves for recess. We will continue to go outside as long as the real feel temperature is above zero.

It was a busy week at Kingsley. We thank you for your patience as we shifted into the new Covid-19 guidance. You may visit the district website or call our health office with questions.

See you Tuesday,

Mel Hackett and Eleni Gajewski
