Student Bag Pick Up

Teachers have spent this past week packing up individual student bags. They have clearly labeled each bag with the teacher’s name and the student’s name. These will be lined up along the sidewalk of the main parking lot (in front of the school) from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. on the following days and organized by teacher’s name this coming week. Teachers used protective gloves to pack their students’ belongings. We ask that you are mindful of social distancing when picking up your child’s bag.

Nov 3, 2020 School Board Election

Marin County School Board elections are scheduled to be held on November 3, 2020 as part of the general election. The terms of School Board members Quoc Tran and David Riedel end in November. David has committed to run and Quoc remains undecided. Parties interested in learning more about running for one of the seats will find information on the Marin County Elections website. Note that there are county registration deadlines in the summer (July 13 - August 7) so it is not too early to start considering this option if you are interested.
If you want to learn more about the role of a School Board Trustee, please review the documents in the overview packet linked below that Superintendent Liz Schott and Board President Heather McPhail Sridharan presented during the May 19th Prospective Board Member Orientation. Please feel free to reach out to any current KSD Trustee or Superintendent Schott anytime with questions. We welcome all interest and involvement.
