INFO to know...

Classroom teacher assignment/Middle School schedule/Middle School locker number & combination/Bus info communication–Thurs., Aug. 9, after 4 PM
As begun last year, KCSD96 will use email to send this info. These emails will be sent to both parent email addresses that were provided by registering parents through online registration. Check for these emails on Aug. 9 after 4 PM. 

If you do not receive this info by email on Aug. 9, one or more of the following might be the reason:
– The school nurse does not have your student's required health info
– Required registration payment has not yet been received for families who selected "check" as their method of payment
