KSD Highlights

Dear KSD Community,

On Monday, February 27 Kent Middle School experienced a power outage shortly after the start of the school day and a decision was made to keep school open using protocols designed to respond to a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). This was the District’s first attempt at using these practices in a real situation and the experience taught us quickly that additional considerations are needed when determining how to respond to a power outage.

Building trust and ongoing dialogue are two essential strategies needed to ensure we are working in partnership with our community. We take pride in cultivating strong, thoughtful relationships with our students, staff, families, and the broader Kentfield community.

In service of those principles, today, I shared this letter with our Kent parent/guardian community soliciting additional feedback to help further inform our response in emergency circumstances. We are continuing to gather information from all stakeholder groups in an effort to comprehensively review and refine our protocols in the best interest of students, staff, and parents/guardians. Once feedback has been received we will re-engage with our District Safety Committee to make additional adjustments and will update our school community accordingly.

We are learning quite a bit from how the day unfolded at Kent Middle School on February 27 and we are committed to doing better moving forward. Our community’s confidence in our district is invaluable and we are committed to maintaining a strong and healthy partnership.

With great respect,

Superintendent Signature

Raquel Rose

When to Stay Home

California Department of Public Health encourages all students and staff to test for COVID-19 IF they feel sick; AFTER exposure, travel, or large gatherings; and BEFORE events or visiting high-risk people.

Please know that our school offices have COVID tests available if needed. Thank you for your support.

Please reference this exposure notice for information on symptoms, communicability, and prevention. (English I Spanish).

Important Medi-Cal Information

State Launches Campaign to Help Californians Keep Medi-Cal Coverage

During the COVID-19 pandemic, federal rules prohibited states from disenrolling anyone from Medicaid. This “continuous coverage” requirement allowed millions of Californians to keep Medi-Cal coverage during an unprecedented health crisis.

However, new federal legislation ends the continuous coverage requirement in March. Starting in April, California will have 14 months to resume normal renewal processes for all Medi-Cal enrollees. The Department of Health Care Services has launched a statewide campaign with a new landing page,

Enrollees who have moved or changed their phone number or email since 2020 need to update their contact information with Medi-Cal so they don’t miss alerts or notices about their renewal. Medi-Cal beneficiaries should update their information today by contacting Marin HHS Public Assistance at: 1-877-410-8817 or visit

Learn more about the DHCS campaign and the end of the continuous coverage requirement.

Bacich Bears News

Maria Martin

Dear Bacich Community,

What a fantastic week we just had! The 2023 Bacich Talent Show was a huge success. Our third and fourth grade participants were incredibly inspiring and quite talented. The third grade chorus concert was fantastic. The students were smiling, singing, and dancing. What a fun show to get to watch. Thank you to our students for their hard work and dedication. Thanks also to our parent community for supporting our enrichment programs.

2023 Field Trips

Bacich field trips are back in full swing! This year, the KIK foundation has volunteered to support field trips by covering some of the costs associated with some of these special experiential learning opportunities. We are grateful for this support, especially since we were unable to go on field trips during the COVID-19 pandemic and many of our students have never been on a school-sponsored trip. Some of our field trips do not have a cost associated with them, but we rely on and appreciate parent chaperones and drivers who help make these special days possible.

Please read on to learn about some of the special field trips happening this month!

First Grade Creekside Marsh Project-Based Learning Unit

Several years ago, two Bacich teachers created and developed a first grade science unit that utilizes the Creekside Marsh as the “classroom” to learn about animal and plant life. The “Creekside Marsh Unit” includes walking field trips to the marsh to learn about the plants and animals that live and thrive in the marsh. These walking field trips began this past week and will continue throughout the duration of the unit.

In addition to the walking field trips, WildCare will be visiting first grade classrooms to teach students more about the plants and animals that live in the marsh. This WildCare visit is fully funded by KIK!

Second Grade - Marin Headlands Field Trip

Our second graders visited the Marin Headlands this past week. The current second grade science unit is all about our changing earth. During this field trip, second grade students became geologists who were exploring the landforms present in the Marin Headlands that have been shaped over time. They lucked out on a beautiful sunny and warm day to participate in this real-life experience.

Second Grade - Farm Day

Second graders are also going to travel to the Marin County Farmers Market on “Farm Day.” This trip connects to their social studies unit on producers and consumers. KIK has supported this trip by providing each student with some spending money so that they can become consumers and shop at the market.

Fourth Grade - Marin Symphony

Bacich fourth graders will join fourth graders from all over Marin County when they attend the Marin Symphony day on March 20. Students will experience the thrill of a live orchestral performance!

All of our Bacich Bears are scheduled to participate in a field trip experiential learning opportunity prior to the end of the school year. Some grades have already been on a field trip earlier this year. The above list is meant to highlight some of the special opportunities happening during the month of March!

With gratitude,

Maria Martin

Baseball Field Construction

Ross Valley Little League (RVLL), is funding and managing an improvement project of the majors' baseball field at the northwest corner of the Bacich field. The project includes the construction of two new enclosed dugouts with entry gates. The project also includes increasing the height of the baseball fence to prevent foul balls from being hit onto Sir Francis Drake Blvd. A new concrete pad for the bleachers and shed will be installed. RVLL has plans for similar improvements to the minors' field (the field closest to the main parking lot). The timing of the minors' project has not been finalized. Over the February mid-winter break (February 20 -24), the baseball field grass will be replaced.

All of the work is being completed by licensed and insured contractors and all workers have received clearance to work on-site during the school day. We do not anticipate much of an impact on our students during the course of this project. The route of the track has been slightly altered due to the temporary construction fencing. All construction vehicle traffic will occur outside of the school day. The project will be completed by March 10 at the latest, with RVLL opening day taking place on March 11.

These improvements, especially the new grass, will benefit all of our students. We appreciate the partnership with Ross Valley Little League and all they provide for our community.

Kent Falcons News

Kent Principal Grant Althouse

Dear Kent Middle School Families,

Recent Power Outage at Kent - After the start of school on Monday, February 27 we experienced an unexpected power outage at Kent due to complications from rain and wind that morning. We were hopeful that power would swiftly be restored at our school, as it had been following another outage the night before. Unfortunately, power was not able to be restored until close to the end of the school day, at 3:10 p.m.

Due to previous district planning for Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), we have a protocol to employ to keep school open without power, yet these strategies had not yet been implemented in real time. The decision was made to keep school open through the conclusion of the school day, and we attempted to run our typical school schedule following the procedures finalized through the PSPS planning. We quickly learned that these protocols lacked critical considerations. You have our commitment to address these gaps and to refine our safety plans going forward. The experience of working through this challenging day plus valuable community feedback provides us with crucial lessons to integrate into our Safety Plan.

  • Weather Conditions - When determining if to keep school open without power, the district must consider weather conditions. Operating a school without heat during cold weather creates uncomfortable conditions for our students and staff.
  • Communication Tools - When the power is out, communication tools like school clocks, the school bell, classroom telephones, the school loudspeaker, and teacher email do not function. We utilized walkie-talkies to communicate transition times to each classroom, yet learned these tools are insufficient for our communication needs during an uncertain time.
  • Communication to Families - We neglected to provide timely communication to students’ families about the conditions at school. The lack of timely communications about the outage and irregular release of students created understandable confusion and concern amongst our community.
  • Use of Personal Devices - Many students chose to contact families with their personal devices from school, asking to be checked out of school. This contributed to the communication challenges and the haphazard conditions around the school office in the afternoon.

At Kent, we take pride in the safe, orderly, and predictable school environment that we work to create for our students each day. On Monday, February 27 we were unable to meet the standards we have set for ourselves, and the expectations that our students and community hold for us. Our school and district administration sincerely apologize for the missteps that led to confusion and concern last Monday. We are committed to learning from this situation and adapting our safety protocols for improved communications and release procedures. Kent parents should use this link to provide feedback and recommendations related to the February 27 incident. We will engage in conversation and reflection with our students about their experiences at school this day as a part of our advisory class this Wednesday.

Judy Heumann - Many of you will recall the Kent All School Read text Rolling Warrior from our school-wide read and author visit with Judy Heumann in October 2022. Sadly, on Saturday we learned that ability rights advocate Judy Heumann passed away at age 75 due to complications with her breathing. Those of us that got to know and love Judy Heumann through reading her book and through her author visit to Kent in October are devastated by this news, and we know that many of you will be saddened as well. We are so thankful to have read her book together and to have experienced a wonderful day of learning and reflection by her side earlier this school year. Thank you, Judy Heumann, for your lasting legacy at our school and in our world.

Readathon - We are thrilled to announce our upcoming KSPTA Readathon, and the many ways we will be celebrating reading and our PTA at Kent! During the week of March 20th, we will run a special schedule that supports daily reading for pleasure for all students and staff. On Wednesday, March 22 we welcome world-renowned author Matt de la Pena for two author visits at our school. Many Kent Falcons have read his books, and many have participated in reading challenges last month and this month to read even more! Our Readathon schedule will include daily activities in the library including bookmark designing, book trivia, book chats, trivia Kahoot, and much much more! Thank you for your participation in the Kent Readathon and our KSPTA through your donation through 99Pledges. More information about how to get involved can be found on the Kentfield Schools Readathon Website. Much appreciation goes to our KSPTA for organizing this fun week of reading at our school!

Let’s have a positive and productive week ahead at Kent!

Kent Library Refresh

Library Refresh!

During the February break our beloved library got a bit of a facelift thanks to an extremely generous KIK fund-a-need donation! Since I began working in the library, it has been my dream to open up our space to make it even more useful for our students and staff. Kent parents Ryan Barr, Sean Canon, and Laura Harrison generously donated their time and design expertise to bring this dream to life along with an incredible committee of students, staff, and parents. The result... well, come and see for yourself (or check out the pictures below) and let us know what you think! We have new paint, fresh carpet, and a fresh, open and more modern-looking space for our Falcons to enjoy with their classes and during break times. Many thanks to EVERYONE who helped this project come to life!!

Scholastic Book Fair Ahead!!

In preparation for the Kentfield Schools Readathon, we will be holding our first-ever Kent Scholastic Book Fair in the library during the week of March 13. The book fair will feature affordable paperback and hardcover books including titles by beloved authors such as Raina Telgemeier, Jeff Kinney, and Alan Gratz. There will also be fun school supplies and posters for sale. During this week, students can visit the book fair before school, during recess and lunch as well as after school on Wednesday. Students can pay using cash, Apple Pay, credit card, or you can use the convenient E-wallet feature to load money into your child's account. Details can be found here.
