KSD News

Dear KSD Community,

Our District's Strategic Plan defines the KSD as a place that strives to inspire students to pursue their passions through teaching practices that are student-centered, inquiry based, and provide a culture of innovation. This definition aligns to the unique and inspiring enrichment programs we offer at both school sites. Through the generous support of our local foundation KIK (Kentfield Invests in Kids) and our collaborative KSPTA partners our engaging teachers are able to offer a vast array of options for our children that include, but are not limited to, music and chorus, visual and studio art, maker and start-up, coding and film making and much more. These opportunities allow our children to explore topics of interest that may excite them, while also motivating them to learn.

My sincere appreciation and gratitude to KIK, KSPTA and the KSD staff for opening doors of curiosity and wonder for our children as they learn and grow in a dynamic educational setting!

Take good care,

Superintendent Signature

Raquel Rose

Community Health Update

As of Monday, March 14, students and staff will have a choice to mask or not mask based on their individual preference or need. As a school community, we are committed to respecting individual choice with care, kindness and compassion.

Our Public Health partners released the updated 32-point plan Guiding Site Based Instruction on Friday afternoon and the KSD vaccination rates have recently been updated for community reference. Students and staff should continue to remain home when sick, and are encouraged to take a COVID-19 test if exhibiting symptoms and/or if they have a known exposure to COVID-19. The KSD will reinstate exposure notifications to families if/when there is a COVID positive in your child’s class, and Public Health is strongly recommending exposed students be masked 5 days following exposure during a COVID infectious period. For more information from Public Health please refer to the March 9th Public Health Update for the School Community (recording - slide deck).

If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please report it to our school nurse, Laurel Yrun at lyrun@kentfieldschools.org immediately.
