Lead Learner Highlights

This week we suffered the loss of an amazing teacher, friend, mentor and student champion. Words cannot express how appreciative we are of our KP Families for the caring and concern you have shown to our staff, students and the Ennis family during this time of grief. Many of you have asked about ways to support Wendy's children. I do know that a scholarship fund is being created and as we learn more, we will share the specifics.


This week's KP's Connection is short and sweet. Please see announcements regarding report card distribution, drop off expectations, our math Night, cafeteria staffing updates, and musical information.

Math Night January 25th at 6:30PM - Khan Academy

We are excited about our Math Night featuring the use of Khan Academy. Please meet us in the KP Commons for a brief overview and then we will move into classrooms for hands on sessions. Feel free to make it an opportunity to learn this program with your KP child.

Cafeteria Staffing Changes

On Friday, we bid farewell to Laurie Ferreira our KP Cafeteria Manager who served students and staff for 17+ years. She will be joining the staff at Conard High School as their Cafteria Manager. We wish her the best. While we will miss her, we are happy that she will continue to serve students and staff of West Hartford Public Schools.


Starting on Monday, Lisa Davis, from Conard, will start as KP's Cafeteria Manager.

Our report card distribution will be delayed one day and distrubuted on Wednesday, January 27th

Morning Drop-Off MUST happen in the back of the building

Parent/Guardians, as we have discussed, for the safety of our students and to expedite bus arrivals, we are reminding parents/guardians to please drop off students in the circle at the Mohawk entrance at the back of the school. There are adults there to usher students to their appropriate team area.


Starting on Monday, our security team will be directing any cars to the back for drop off between 7:40am-8:00am. I want to thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

For 8th Grade Families

The next important event related to the 8th to 9th transition process is:

  • Jan. 27 @ 7:00PM -- Grade 8 Parent/Guardian Night at Hall High School


Eighth grade students should have received a program of studies from Hall High School and a gold-colored elective course registration form. Please review this information with your child so that they are prepared to register for classes the first week of February. If your child did not receive these materials, please have them see their counselor.

Late Bus

If your child is taking the late bus for the first time, please have them come to the office for assistance in finding the right stop closest to your home.
