KAES To Worship In Song At Keene Spanish Church

This Saturday the 3rd through 6th grade choirs, handbells and marimbas will use their talents praising God at the Keene Spanish Church. Please join us for this beautiful Sabbath.

Let's Keep KAES Well

We have had a very healthy year. However over the last week we have had an uptick in the number of students going home with a temperature over 100 degrees. We are having the school disinfected each night to help kill lingering germs. Teachers are disinfecting their classrooms daily along with designating times (in two hour increments) to remind students to wash hands . We need your help at home too. If your child does not feel well, please keep them home. Remember if your child has a fever, school policy is that students should stay home until they have been 24 hours without a fever. Thank you for helping us all stay healthy.


Steps to staying healthy

1. Wash hands often for 20 seconds.

2. Keep hands away from face.

3. Stay home if you have a fever.

4. Get a good night's sleep.

5. Drink lots of water.

Dismissal Changes

We definitely ended the week better than we started. We were out of the routine but it got better. Let's continue to show compassion, love and kindness to each other in our KAES family.


We will continue to dismiss students in the elementary building at 2:55pm and students in the middle school building at 3:05pm. If you have children in both buildings we ask that you pick up at 3:05pm, the designated dismissal time for the middle school. The same pattern of dismissal will be observed on Fridays with the time being 1:55pm for our elementary building and 2:05pm for our middle school building.
