Dear KCAA Families, 


Please read this newsletter that contains important information and updates. 



Please note that if you are calling for your child's early release, students will not be pulled out of class via a phone call. Parents will need to come to the main office with a valid ID before students will be called down and released. There will be no exceptions so please plan your time accordingly. Also there will be no early release after 3:00pm as it is extremely disruptive to the end of day procedures. Thank You!


Tenga en cuenta que si solicita la salida temprana de su hijo, no se sacará a los estudiantes de clase mediante una llamada telefónica. Los padres deberán venir a la oficina principal con una identificación válida antes de que los estudiantes sean llamados y liberados. No habrá excepciones, así que planifique su tiempo. Además, no habrá salida temprana después de las 3:00 p. m., ya que es extremadamente perturbador para los procedimientos del final del día. ¡Gracias!
