Box Tops for Education

Just a reminder that KMS is collecting Box Tops for Education.  Please bring your Box Tops to the Main Office.  This program helps support the KMS Math Carnival and the KMS Musical. Thank you.

Bus Passes

This is a reminder that due to the number of students assigned to each bus, the school is not able to grant bus passes.  This policy has been posted on our webpage for the past few years. In the event of extenuating circumstances, parents are requested to call transportation to arrange for their child’s permission to ride another bus.  The KCSD transportation department’s number is 610-444-6618.

Latex and Nut Allergies

Due to students with allergies to latex, latex balloons, gloves or other latex items are not permitted at Kennett Middle School. Due to food allergies, do not send items containing any type of nuts or peanut butter when sending snacks for a classroom, sports, dance or other events at KMS.

Message from the KMS Nurse

Sick Child - If your child needs to go home from school due to illness, you will be contacted directly by the school nurse.  If you receive a call or text from your child stating they are sick and need to be picked up from school, please contact the school nurse at 610 268 5874

Absence, Early Dismissal, Late Arrival procedures

The following is the procedure for absences, early dismissals and late arrivals at KMS.

If your child is absent on a given day, please call the school, (610) 268 5878, to notify us. Additionally, a note MUST be sent in upon your child’s return to school; without the note, your child’s absence will be considered unexcused.

Early Dismissals
If you know you will be picking your child up during school hours, please send a note in with your child on that day stating the time they are to be dismissed from class. The school will issue your child a pass to come to the office at that time. You must come into the Main Office to sign your child out.

Late Arrivals - In the event your child will be late to school, your child MUST sign in with the Attendance Secretary, located in the Guidance Office.  Please send your child in with a note stating the reason for their tardiness. Pick ups AFTER the school day - If you choose to pick your child up after the school day, the arrangement is between you and your child.  KMS does not need a note for after school pick ups.

For more details on the above items, please refer to the Student Handbook that was sent home with your child.
