  • Bringing items from Home

    If your child is going to be riding their bike to school, please have them bring a bike lock to lock it up during the day. We have a bike rack on the playground for them.

    Students should refrain from bringing baseballs or softballs to school. While we understand the season is here, hard balls are not allowed on the playground. Umbrellas are not to be taken on the playgroundby students either. Students are running around during recess and umbrellas tend to be a hazard.

    We ask that your child not bring their special treasures from home unless they are doing a special show and tell in their classroom. Treausres rarely have names on them and sometimes get misplaced or lost. It is best to keep special items like that home.

    Thank you.

  • Houghtaling PE Update

    from Mr. Johnson

    3-21-18

    Hello All, 
     
    Over the next couple weeks our Dolphins will be working on various football skills outside.  In grades 4-6, we will be playing Flag Football and learning the positions and rules that govern the sport.  In grades K-2, we spend the majority of time on basic fundamentals such as catching and throwing and introducing basic rules.  In grades K-2, I really try to help them identify basic vocabulary that is used in the specific sport.
     
    Also, we are in search of volunteers to help facilitate our upcoming Spring Fling and Field Event between Fawn Mountain and Houghtaling Elementary 5th and 6th grades.  This event is to take place at the Fawn Mountain Track on May 18th from 10:00-12:30pm.  We could surely use some help with running events and I promise that nothing is overly extensive.  
     
    If you have any questions please contact me at kevin.johnson@k21schools.org or Zach Trudeau at zachery.trudeau@k21schools.org.

  • 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.

  • 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.
