Zones of Regulation

You may hear your student talking about what zone they are in to describe how they are feeling. We are using this language building wide this year. Help us by talking about it at home with your student. of the zones are natural to experience, but the framework focuses on teaching students how to recognize and manage their zone based on the demands of their environment and the people around them.


The Red Zone is used to describe extremely heightened states of alertness and intense emotions. A person may be elated, euphoric, or experiencing anger, rage, explosive behavior, devastation, or terror when in the Red Zone.


The Yellow Zone is also used to describe a heightened state of alertness and elevated emotions, however individuals have more control when they are in the Yellow Zone. A person may be experiencing stress, frustration, anxiety, excitement, silliness, the wiggles, or nervousness when in the Yellow Zone.


The Green Zone is used to describe a calm state of alertness. A person may be described as happy, focused, content, or ready to learn when in the Green Zone. This is the zone where optimal learning occurs.


The Blue Zone is used to describe low states of alertness and down feelings such as when one feels sad, tired, sick, or bored.

Our Character Trait for September is RESPECT!

Arrival and Dismissal

For arrival in the morning we are asking that all students who are being dropped off, be dropped off in the back of the building (on the Justice side) Doors in the back will open at 7:20 to allow kids to come in and eat breakfast. We want to keep the front clear for Preschool drop off.


At dismissal, car riders load at the back of the building. This allows for preschool to dismiss with less confusion. Please be here to pick up your student (s) on time. We stop entering numbers into the system at 2:30, so please pull around to the front as those students will be moved to the office if you are not already in the line.

Kendall Pledge

We believe that by working #together every Kendall Elementary student will achieve personal success and become a responsible and productive citizen. One way that you can join us in this mission is by practicing the Kendall Pledge with your student. This is something that your child says every morning as we prepare for our day.


Kendall Pledge

I will respect myself and others

Today I will do my best

I am here to learn
