Kit Carson Elementary School

Dear Kit Carson Families,   

            As we end this school year, I would like to say thank you!  We are blessed to have had the opportunity to serve you and your children at Kit Carson. I know this pandemic has been difficult, but I feel next year we will be better prepared for what comes our way. We will continue our safe practices by keeping high touch areas wiped down and having parents keep students home if they are not feeling well. I am looking forward to having events where families are allowed on campus and can enjoy student performances, academic evenings and Cafecito with the principal.

            As you may have noticed, we have new fencing up around campus. This project started 2 years ago with the initiative to keeping campuses safe from predators and any unwanted visitors. We are here to keep our students safe. Next year the gates will be open for staff and students, but they will be locked by 8am, and then re-opened by 2pm.  Any students coming to school late will have to be taken to the front office.

            We are designated to be an ELTP school next year (JUST the extra 10 days). The results of the votes were for extended school year. The ELTP calendar is up on the APS website.  Students will start school next school year on August 4th, teachers will start on July 28th.

          Please register for school if you have not done so yet; if you need assistance, please let us know. Also, our dual language classes are filling up quickly. The school supply list for next year will be sent home with your child’s final report card. It will also be put on our website.

Thank you for a wonderful school year, I am looking forward to serving you next school year. Have a restful summer.
