    For the security of our students and staff, all visitors must enter and exit our building at the front office. We ask you also visibly display a visitor sticker for all staff to see.
    We are strictly enforcing this new safety measure and ask for your cooperation. 
    Please do not be offended if you are not following this policy and get stopped by a staff member. We have been trained to stop people on premise not wearing a sticker. This is for ALL student and staff safety.
    Thank You.

  • 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.

  • 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
