    Parents and Guardians,
     
     
    I would like to take this opportunity to let you know of some of the safeguards that we have in place for your child's safety. KGBSD has a School Resource Officer from the Ketchikan Police Department available to all the schools in the District. KCS has procedures for checking into the school and the playground during school hours. KCS staff know and follow these procedures. KCS has fire drills once a month and teachers review code red and lockdown procedures periodicaly throughout the year. KCS also has procedures in place for recess emergencies. Staff practice these with students throughout the year.
     
    If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at 225-8568. Student safety is a matter that we take seriously.
     
    Thank you,
     
    Julie McFarland

    STUDENT DRESS CODE

    Parents are asked to monitor clothing ensuring that the clothing is appropriate for the weather and the activities of the day. Students will be asked to remove, cover-up, or turn inside out any inappropriate clothing worn to school. Any logos on clothing are to be school appropriate. No hoods or hats are to be worn indoors. Students wearing shoes that may be a safety hazard will be asked to change their shoes or limit their activities. Please mark all coats, sweaters, gloves, and hats with the student's name.
