KSD Highlights

Dear KSD Community,

I hope you enjoyed the extended weekend and we’re able to take some time to honor and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This proclamation released by President Biden on January 14 spoke to Dr. King’s inspiration and call to action. As a school community we continue to prioritize justice and equality through our strategic plan that guides the instruction and the community building activities inside and outside of classrooms across our campuses. I thank our staff and parent community for cultivating this culture of inclusivity and I look forward to realizing “Dr. King’s dream of a freer, fairer, and more just society.”

With respect,

Superintendent Signature

Raquel Rose

KSD needs a Safe Routes to School Ambassador

We are lucky to be in a community where there are safe routes for our children to walk, ride, skate, roll, or bike to school. In order to keep our safe routes to school a priority for the County we need a community volunteer to step up and represent the KSD as a Safe Routes to School Ambassador. If you are interested please email admin@kentfieldschools.org to help be a part of the solution for getting our kids to school safely!
