Due to the large number of students at Kenton Elementary School, it is important to include the following information on notes sent to the teachers regarding transportation changes:

  • Student’s full name
  • Teacher’s name
  • Name and address of the place where the student is going to (only if it is NOT their home address)

By providing this information, it will help to eliminate confusion for staff and students at the end of the day.

REMEMBER – PLEASE MAKE CALL TRANSPORTATION CHANGES BY 12:00 PM.

Thank you for your help!
