Lead Learner Highlights
Dear KP Families,
Thank You for an amazing start to the school year! From the Summer Blast Kick off (thank you KP PTO), to the staff opening days, the energy has been outstanding. I want to thank all of our families for your support in helping with the successful opening of the school year.
We have hit the ground running, and students and staff are building relationships and immersing themselves into learning.
Below are a few announcements/updates/reminders. Our after school club offerings will be posting soon.
Enjoy the long weekend,
2017-2018 School Theme
Our school theme for this year is Be The One! I met with all grades to talk with students about how they could Be The One at King Philip and beyond this year and invite you to talk about this as a family. Below are links to the grade level slide show. I hope you will take some time to review the presentation and talk about our theme as a family.
Arrival Time to School
Morning Drop Off: For the safety of our students and to expedite bus arrivals, we are reminding parents/caregivers to please drop off students in the circle at the Mohawk entrance at the back of the school. There will be adults there to usher them to their appropriate team area. Thank you.

"Public Act 16-189
We believe that it is vital for all students in West Hartford Public Schools to be able to efficiently and effectively use digital tools that empower them in all phases of the learning process, including research, problem solving, content creation, communication, and collaboration. We also believe that we must be committed at all times to protecting students' privacy and providing them with a powerful and safe educational experience. To that end, the West Hartford Public Schools follow the legal requirements of Public Act 16-189 to promote the safety and security of all students and staff.
In compliance with Connecticut State Law, we update online programs used within the district that house student data. The programs may be used district-wide, in a very small number of classrooms, or with individual students. The list will be updated each time the district enters into a new contract where student data is housed. For more information on the specifics of Public Act 16-189 and updates of vendor agreements, visit www.whps.org/pa189."
