  • safety Our staff outside are working everyday as quickly as possible to help children get safely to their waiting vehicles. If your child is a pick up in the drive through lane, please remind them to go directly outside to your car and not dilly dally. We are trying to keep the pick up lane flowing. Thank you Parents for your patience! As the weather is changing and it is getting darker we are asking our pick up parents to please use caution and drive slowly. Also, please use the crosswalk in front of the building anytime you are crossing the street. The crosswalk is a huge safety feature put in place to keep everyone safe. Thank You!

     

    Remember - PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE UPPER LOT anywhere at the end of the day UNLESS you use the front handicap spots. Not even for a couple minutes.

    This is a HUGE safety issue for kiddos!

  • tardy Excessive Tardiness

    Hello Parents: We are noticing more and more students arriving to school tardy. Please plan accordingly the night before so that you are all ready for the morning chaos. With that being said, students should not arrive to school before 8:35am. ALL STUDENTS go to either breakfast or the playground at 8:35am. There is no hanging out in the front foyer waiting for the bell to ring. Teachers are getting their rooms ready for the day so kids may not go to the classroom unless plans have been made prior.

  • Hello Houghtaling Parents!
    Our teachers at Houghtaling strive to give as much instructional time to our students as possible. For this reason, we are asking for your help with keeping classroom interruptions limited. If you need to bring something to school for you child, please leave items at the front office and our staff will see that it gets to your child's classroom.  If you are wanting to visit your child, we ask that you come during their lunch/recess time only. Please sign in at the office and have a visitor sticker visible at all times.
     
    If you need to speak to your child's teacher... no problem! Just call our front office at 225-4128, and we will transfer you over to your child's teacher's voicemail and they will call you back to set up an appointment. You may also email your child's teacher at firstname.lastname@k21schools.org

  • KGBSD Text Alerts

    Text Alerts, Announcements, and Reminders

    Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District is excited to announce that this year we will be activating texting capabilities through, SchoolMessenger, the same system that sends out the district’s automated phone calls and emails.  This service is not intended to replace our existing means of communication- rather it will enhance them.


    The district will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant.


    In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.


    Simply text any one of the following words to the number 67587: subscribe, optin, yes


    You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message:
You are registered 4 SchoolMessenger notifications. Reply STOP to quit, HELP for help.


    In addition to performing the opt-in process above you’ll want to insure that the district has your wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven’t already provided that information to your school, do so.
