From the Principal

February 3, 2021

To our KES Families,

I hope this letter finds you all well and having enjoyed two extra precious days with your children. As you know all too well, our children have lost so much this year. From sports to playdates to being able to come to school five days a week, so much has changed for our littles. It makes me sad as their principal, and it pains me that so much is out of my control. To that end, I am going to do something that is in my control.

I am permitting children to bring in Valentines for their classmates. These can include cards as well as little Valentine sets (the ones with a pencil or pre-wrapped candy). Baked goods or items for class parties unfortunately cannot be allowed. Each classroom teacher will have their own method for handing out these treats. Items must be handed in as follows: Cohort A: Monday, February 8; Cohort B: Thursday, February 11. The items will be held overnight and sprayed by our custodians and then handed out the next day.

If you have any concerns, or if you do not want your child to participate, please let the classroom teacher know. Items will all be sent home so you can make the decision to let them sit for a few days before opening, or to permit your child to open them right away.

As always, thank you so much for your support, patience, and understanding. I hope that this brings some happiness and a bit of normalcy to our children and helps them to enjoy the small happy moments of childhood!
