KP Attendance Policy
If your child is absent or tardy, please call the KP Attendance line at 860-233-8236 , press 1. Leave your child's full name and grade along with the reason for the tardy or absence.
Step 2 - Written requirement.
In order to comply with State of Connecticut Statute for attendance, all absences will be unexcused until a written note is received by the school. Please note: a parent/guardian note will be accepted for absences which meet the criteria.
In the event of an early closing, it is best for your child(ren) to have a safe and secure place to go. Review the plan you have put in place that identifies where your child needs to go if school closes early. Take the time to write this plan in your child's agenda for a quick and easy reference. Please note the section in the Student/Family Handbook titled "Emergency Closing" on page 11. Additionally, the district uses the ConnectEd phone system to notify families of school closings and early dismissals due to inclement weather.
As we are into the winter months, it's a good time to remember to take extra care in the mornings and afternoons dropping off/picking up kids from KP and neighborhoods. Snowbanks limit visibility and often constrict roads and walkways. Please remember to leave a little extra time to make sure that all of our students are safe.
