Dear Kentfield School District Community,

As we close out the first week of our full in-person and distance learning only pathway program I want to extend my absolute gratitude to the KSD community for making this happen. Through coming together as a collective force we were able to expand offerings for our students that exuberated joy and excitement, and our educators were able to teach in a way that felt more “normal.” Across both campuses we continue to tweak operations to get better and I am confident through enforcing guidance from our public health we can keep our schools open and close out this school year on a positive note.

The KSD will return to Full -In Person following the spring recess on April 12th.  The decision to resume our current program is based on maintaining continuity of teaching and learning for our students and staff.  In order to keep our schools as safe as possible following this break, we are reinforcing recommendations of Public Health and asking families to please quarantine if you have traveled out of state and/or engaged in high risk activity.  If you anticipate quarantining please complete THIS form by March 30th, so we may prepare your child/ren’s educational program.

As I have said in various communications we have a common goal of doing what is best for our school community and by working together and following this guidance from public health I am confident we will be able to keep our school campuses open and continue to see our children thrive in the safest environment possible.  

Be Well!
