The Katonah-Lewisboro Learning Commitment
In the KLSD, we will strive to create learning experiences for all students that are engaging, relevant, and take place in an active learning environment.
If a student tests positive, it is best to reach out to your school principal or school nurse as soon as you receive the test results. If this happens during the school day, please call. If it’s at night or on a weekend, email is best. The sooner we get the information, the better.
Rain Date is 6/22

A Message from Mrs. Hoffman, IM’s Library Media Specialist
June 11th will be the last day students can check our library books. All books are due back to the library by Friday, June 18th. Summer Reading Information will be shared in the near future!
We are excited to announce that we are hosting Field Day 2021 on Monday, June 21. The Field Day Committee, comprised of parents, teachers, and building administration, met to discuss the activities planned for this special day. We are planning to include many of the same activities as in the past along with new games that the physical education department created, adapted, and taught this year. Each activity also takes into account our current health and safety guidelines required by NY State DOH. Unfortunately, we will not be able to have volunteers help run each station, however, our staff at IM along with the leadership of our PE teachers are looking forward to making this a fun day for all our K-5 students.
We also would like to include any virtual learner who may be interested in attending. Please email your child’s remote teacher by Monday, June 14 if you would like to be included in the day. We will reach out to you the week of June 14 to confirm and provide additional details.
We also realize that the day may be very hot so we will be sure to provide many mask breaks, and we also ask that you pack your child a water bottle to stay hydrated. Additionally, please apply sunscreen on your child before they come to school. The children will also be assigned a color, purple or gray, our school colors, by their teacher so please look for that communication in the future.
If you ordered a yearbook, we anticipate them arriving on Thursday, June 17th. Yearbooks will be backpacked on Friday, June 18th. Remote families may pick up their yearbooks from the main entrance on Friday, June 18th or the following week.
On Friday, June 25th at the end of the day, the Infinite Campus Parent Portal may be accessed to review your child’s progress report for the last trimester. Additionally, special area progress reports will also be posted.
We would like to thank everyone for all their efforts in keeping our community healthy and safe. We will be in touch with additional reminders and details about the end of the year.
Kerry Ford & Michael Weschler
