Dear KSD Community,
Today, Dr. Mark Gahly, California Health and Human Services Secretary, announced adjusting the masking mandate for all schools from mandatory to strongly recommended effective March 11 at 5 p.m. This means that masking indoors for students and staff will be “strongly recommended,” especially for those who are unvaccinated.
This announcement is a significant change to school operations – although as a community we are committed to aligning to local and state Public Health Guidance. Marin Public Health has not yet changed local school guidance. As we receive additional updates this week, the KSD will further inform the community of how we plan to address this adjustment.
Stay tuned for additional updates in the days ahead.
Thank you to all the parents/guardians for your participation in the KSD's Youth Truth Survey. We are pleased to report that we had 65% participation rate!

Overview of Comprehensive School Safety Plan - Newsletter
The KSD’s 2021-2022 Comprehensive School Safety Plan (CSSP) was approved by the Board of Trustees at their February 8th meeting. Required by CA Education Code and updated annually by March 1, CSSPs are designed to ensure school districts prepare for emergencies, address potential risks to campuses, and create safe, secure, and peaceful learning environments for students and school staff. The CSSP is the overarching safety plan for our district, and it includes 10 key components, including the Bacich and Kent emergency preparedness plans, along with other documents and policies that outline how we foster social, emotional, and physical safety for all members of our school communities. We are proud of how comprehensive and thorough our plan is in an effort to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff.
