School To Home Communication

The Waterloo Region District School Board is moving to on line communication.  The 2014-2015 “School Year Information” package will be available on the KCI website in an effort to reduce costs and save paper. The package will contain information regarding school year start up such as: the school year calendar, safe schools protocol, and other information that may be helpful for a successful year in school; however, paper copies of this information will still be available to those parents who prefer it to be sent home.

A form to request paper copies of the school year start up package will be sent home with the summer mail out. Please complete and return this form to the school if you would prefer to receive a paper copy of the start up package.

Completed forms are to be returned by September 2.

Welcome Back Raiders!
