Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

August 3, 2021

Dear Kenston Intermediate School Families:

The KIS staff and I are excited to welcome you for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. A special welcome to our incoming fourth grade students and all the new families to the Kenston School District. Of course we are happy to welcome back our incoming fifth grade students as they begin their final year at KIS. We look forward to welcoming all our students on the first day of school, Thursday, August 19th.

While the students have been away from the building, plenty of activity has taken place to prepare for the new school year. The custodial and maintenance teams in the district have done a wonderful job cleaning, repairing, and making enhancements to the campus as well as our building. Our teachers are busy preparing for student arrival. As the final days of summer wind down, please take a moment to review a few important items of information listed below.
