Community Update

Hello KSS Families,

I hope this message finds you and your family safe and healthy.

The governor has closed schools through May 15. We expect more information about school closures this week.  You will be notified by the district via phone, email and text when Governor Cuomo provides further guidance.   

As of this notice, our school has loaned 145 Chromebooks to students.  The district has also worked to procure free Wi-Fi, giving access to those families in need and increasing our student participation rates in Distance learning.

Presently, I am working with the district administrators to develop a plan for a grading system and end-of-year student report card.  You will be informed when details are finalized. 

Very Important – We are still in need of pictures for our student yearbook.  We need more pictures of the Talent Show, the Winter Ball, the Veterans Day Ceremony, the Winter Concert, and at-home Distance Learning.  You can upload pictures at this link:  Use the user ID: 414603681

Lastly, we ask that you please notify the school if your child ill and unable to complete their assignments in google classroom.  You can email the nurse at

Stay safe and healthy,

Samuel Ortiz
