Klein On Campus Students

As we enter the second semester of the 20-21 school year we would like to remind our families that if your student is an On Campus student they may not login from home without a medical reason. As in years past, on campus students who are absent, will be marked absent in Skyward. Families, please call or send a note regarding your child's absence.

As you can imagine, it takes quite a lot of preparation for our teachers to prepare for instruction each day and students changing from on campus to online instruction can be difficult. We appreciate your understanding around this as we work together to navigate this school year. Please fell free to reach out if you have questions.


Valentine's Day Parties

We are excited to hold our annual Valentine's Day Parties this year even though they may look a little different. Students will be exchanging cards on February 10th during class. After they are exchanged, the cards will be kept in the classroom over the extended weekend in order to quarantine. Students will be bringing their cards home on February 16th after the extended weekend.

Families, we ask that you not send candy or food items with your cards and unfortunately, this year families will not be able to participate in our parties because visitors are still not allowed on campus due to safety procedures.


For Klein On-Campus Students and families

  • Face Masks: Please ensure that a face mask is worn by your student every day..

  • Water Bottles: For the purpose of safety, our water fountains are only used to refill water bottles. Please ensure that your student brings his/her own water bottle with them to school every day with his/her name written on it. It can be a disposable bottle or a reusable one.


GFE Procedures

We have three parking spaces available for curbside assistance. Please stay in your vehicle and call the numbers on the sign for assistance.

  • NO visitors in the building.
  • Conferences/ARD/Etc. will be virtual when possible.
  • NO deliveries for students or staff permitted.
