"Bloom Where You Are Planted"

Welcome Back!

Greetings Knight Families,

We are excited to welcome you to Kendall Elementary this year! I am Jennifer Escamilla and am proud to serve as the Kendall Principal. I have been in education for 18 years and an administrator for 13 of those years in Northside ISD. As a BISD parent, I understand the importance of a high quality education in a loving, family friendly environment. I am committed to keeping our students and staff safe as we venture into this new year. We are fortunate to have the best staff in Boerne ISD and are excited to welcome both new and familiar faces back to campus.

Our campus theme this year is "Bloom Where You Are Planted". As a staff, we intentionally chose this theme because we are committed to growing roots and blooming along with your child. We were fortunate to bring Capturing Kids' Hearts to our campus and had a great time building relationships with each other and setting our campus commitments for the year.

In efforts to keep everyone safe, as a district, we will not be having parents or visitors walking our students to their classrooms even on the first day. We will have plenty of staff available to walk our students and ensure that they all get to their classrooms safely. We know that this is not ideal, but please trust our process and understand our commitment to ensuring a safe and secure school.

This is going to be an AMAZING year and we are very excited to have you on our team. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help you as we begin the year.

In partnership,

Jennifer Escamilla- Kendall Principal

School Lunch Update

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year.

As a result, Boerne ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility.

Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, which is available here. Please return the completed form online or to any school office.

To view current lunch prices please view the graphic below.
