Dear KMS Families,
Greeting to all! This week at KMS students and faculty will be very busy.
In order to be able to have a good understanding about what students have learned during distance learning, teachers will be giving assessments starting this week and through to the end of the month. While we always remind students to review their work, these assessments are a normal part of our days, and teachers will be clear about what they will be assessing. Students will be taking the Star Assessment for reading as well as 7th and 8th grade math. 6th graders will be taking the iReady assessment for math. In science and social studies, teachers have worked together to create common assessments.
On Wednesday, teachers will be working together during Professional Development day - so there will be no school for students.
On Friday is a Virtual Student Support Day, where many students will be invited to participate in small group or individual meetings. Teachers will email invited students and families to let all know who must attend.
Please take a look at your students progress in Aspen. If you are unable to access your students account, please email: email@example.com
Have a great week!
Be RESPECTFUL, Be RESPONSIBLE, Be READY TO LEARN
This weeks Schedule:
**A Robo call will go out daily if your student is marked absent in our system- meaning they missed their homeroom check in!
- DAILY: It is CRUCIAL that your child submits their attendance first thing -by 9AM so they can also then get right to their first class (and then not forget to do it later). If they do not check in they will be marked absent.
- Going to be ABSENT? If your student is going to be absent, please call the Attendance office: 245-2010 ext 1
- If your child has consecutive absences with no communication to our office staff then you will receive a check in call from our office staff. Phone calls will come in from a restricted phone number.

BWRSD Online Tech Support for Families
Please continue to email BWRSDTech@BWRSD.org for support during this time of Distance Learning. The email account is accessible 24 hours per day, and you can expect a response within 1 school day. The most common issue for not being able to access apps such as STEMscopes is that they may not be going in through CLEVER or that families need to have students login to the Chrome browser with their BWRSD credentials. Here are directions.
If you have a broken device please email BWRSDTech@bwrsd.org.
Important Info from Nurse Welchman
May is National Water Safety Month
CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO THE RIGHT FOR: FACTS ABOUT CHILDHOOD DROWNING
Between 2015 and 2018, 3,923 children and adolescents died from drowning. Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children ages 1-4 and a leading cause of death among teens. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found 60% of children under 5 were not expected to be in or around the pool when they drowned. Measures can be taken to prevent children from drowning. With children spending more time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the summer season upon us, promoting water safety is critically important. Learn more about water safety and drowning prevention from the resources below.
