Kentfield School District News

Dear KSD Community,

As the days get longer and we head into the spring we are looking forward to a new beginning with the launch of KSD’s full In-Person Instructional program on Monday, March 22nd.

The KSD staff is working diligently to address all the fine details in preparing our school sites and the students for this significant shift. Please be sure to read this week’s newsletters from both Bacich and Kent principals as they each provide pertinent details about this transition.

On Thursday, March 18th at 5 p.m. KSD will host a Community Office Hour with our school nurse and other local physicians to review the updated Site Specific Safety Protection Plan (SSSPP) for our schools. This presentation will highlight the specific changes to the SSSPPs and address required quarantining, spring break and respond to questions from attendees.

We thank you for your ongoing support and confidence in our KSD team as we work together through this next transition for the 2020-21 school year!

Take good care,

Superintendent Signature

Raquel Rose
