Eagle Parents:

On Monday, August 31st, 2020, all KISD campuses will return to offering in-person instruction for all students who choose to attend in person. Students who choose to continue working remotely via Schoology may continue to do so.

Here are a few important points to remember for the first day of in-person instruction:

*See campus bell schedule for class, lunch, and dismissal times.

*All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask while on campus, and to self-screen for fever or any COVID symptoms before reporting to campus.

*All students, staff, and visitors should maintain social distancing to the extent possible in every activity.

*All students should enter campus and report to their 1st period class to receive their student ID, and for further instructions about campus procedures.
