Final Grade Entry dates - FYI from IT department - IMPORTANT

IT has changed the final grade entry dates to reflect the new end of school year date.

FYI - B4 grades can be entered 6/15 - 6/16 (it was 6/9 - 6/10 before IT changed it today).

If any assignments are due in that time frame, they will show up in both B4 and Q4. The only way around that is for the teacher to manually override the B4 grade.


Any questions or problems you may have with your Teacher GradeBook should be directed to the IT department by emaling or calling the HELPDESK.

The three teachers designated to help you with GradeBook in our building are Carey Poetzsch, Donna Burton and Laura Nichols.

Summer Renovation at KP

Please read the attached document that will apply to the entire school this summer in conjunction with our summer roof replacement project. In addition, there will be dumpsters located near the building and parking restrictions in different locations as the project progresses. If you have any questions, please email Rocco.
