What about backpacks?
Backpacks will only be used to transport items between school and home, so any kind of backpack will be acceptable. Backpacks must fit in a student locker, where they will be stored during the day. Students may access their lockers at the beginning of the day, the period before lunch, after lunch, and at the end of the day.
What do I bring the first day of school? Only the basic supplies of a notebook and pencil are required for the first day.
How do I request homework if my child is absent more than one day? Please call Ms. Martinez at 594-2838 to request homework or you may email your child's teachers directly to request work. Students are given the total amount of days absent as a grace period to turn in missed work.
How do I find out if my child has any homework? Please ask your student to write homework assignments in his/her Agenda Page and you may also check the KLMS Staff Lesson Plans page.
How do I handle absences? Students have three school days to make up missing work. Extenuating circumstances apply. Parents/students may approach their teacher for missing work as well as email their teacher during their absence to gather the work.
How can I contact the teachers? You may call or email the teacher. All staff emails and phone numbers are listed on the Staff page. During instructional time, all calls normally go to voicemail.

If you do not receive a report at the appropriate time, please contact your child's teacher, assistant principal, or counselor.
