KSD Highlights

Dear KSD Community,

It has been an absolute pleasure to see our students, staff and parent community have such a positive start to the new school year. As the weather turns to a more brisk and fall-like temperature I look forward to what lays ahead!

The Board of Trustees convened on September 13, 2022 for a Regular Meeting of the Board and engaged in a process to address the provisional appointment required due to a Trustee vacancy this past July. The Board interviewed and unanimously voted to provisionally appoint Benny Joseph into the open seat effective immediately. A public notice has been posted in our community to formally announce Mr. Joseph in this position. To learn a bit more about Mr. Joseph read here, please join me in welcoming Mr. Joseph into this new position with the Kentfield School District.

Take good care,

Superintendent Signature

The Marin County Public Health continues to enforce the Marin County SMARTER Schools Plan for the 2022-2023 school year, this is the same plan that was implemented at the conclusion of the 2021-2022 school year.

Marin County Public Health is urging COVID testing for symptomatic individuals, exposure and/or high risk activity. Here is guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) specifying situations in which to test. Families are urged to have test kits in the home, which can be obtained from the school offices during regular school hours or at local pharmacies.

If you test positive please report to Laurel Yrun at lyrun@kentfieldschools.org, no need to report negative test results. The KSD will continue to reference Marin County’s Public Health’s Isolation, Quarantine, and Travel Guidance for TK-12 Schools to address COVID exposure.
