IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR STUDENTS WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS:  Parents/Guardians are reminded that they need to pick up any EPIPENS or other medication from the school office on the last day of school, Thursday, June 28.

REQUEST FROM KEATING HOME & SCHOOL ASSOCIATION (KHASA) FOR CALL BACK/SAFE ARRIVAL ‘COORDINATOR’ FOR 2018-19:  KHASA is looking for a parent volunteer to coordinate a team of parents for the Call Back/Safe Arrival Program at Keating for the 2018-19 school year.  This would involve creating a monthly schedule for parent volunteers and monitoring the program.   What do parent volunteers do?  Parent volunteers are asked to be present at the school for up to 1 hour to telephone homes of students who have not arrived and have not contacted the safe arrival line or sent an absence email.  Volunteers may sign up for once a month or once a week or anything in between.  Preschool siblings are welcome to join you during your shift.  This program’s success depends on the help of many parents.  If you are interested in being the Safe Arrival Call Back Coordinator, please email khasa63@gmail.com.
