Announcements and Important Events
Ready, Set, Go!
It's hard to believe that tomorrow is a school night! As we finish up the last couple days of summer and preseason sports, I thought I would pass along some helpful information for parents about back to school sports and other important KMS information:
Pre-season Practice Schedules can be found at the bottom of this page.
GoKMS.com texts, emails and Alerts: Please be sure to update your settings, teams and grades so that you receive the text messages and emails for updates such as this and game changes or cancelations. If you received this email/alert in error or your child has graduated from Kennett Middle School, disregard or update/cancel your account. (This was sent to all sports to ensure we reached as many parents at KMS as possible.)
Game/Meet Schedules will be posted by the first of the week. I am currently working on a few adjustments and trying to secure buses for all away games. There are several games that our teams did not have transportation for. Our Districts are in desperate need of bus drivers - we may not have enough to cover our athletic events and field trips this school year. If you are interested in becoming a school bus driver, or would like more information, please contact Me, Gredel Shaw at 447-3626 or email@example.com.
Pick ups, Drop offs & Parking: Once school starts, parents and students should not be dropped off or picked up in front of the gymnasium/cafeteria during before or after school hours. This is for buses only. Instead, parents should wait for their athletes in the DO/PU Lanes by the football tower. NOTE: spectators cannot park there during football games. And, please do not wait by the walkway between the buildings near the SAU9 doors. It creates a bottleneck and traffic congestion. Lastly, the rear parking lot behind Conway Elementary was recently rehabbed and paved and it looks great! Please utilize parking out back and take in the beautiful scenery as you walk to our games and events! There are limited spots in front of the cafeteria and should be saved for the elderly and or handicapped drivers. If you need assistance getting a grandparent or loved one to a game/field/event, please contact me and I will help you out.
Practices & Supervision: Practices will take place after school from 2:35 to 4:30 each day unless otherwise indicated by their coach. This will alow 15 minutes for the athletes to change and catch the late bus or a ride at 4:45. There will be no supervision after 4:45pm. Students must be chaperoned by a coach or faculty member or adult if they are watching a home game or event at KMS. Students should not be dropped off unattended. A note must be provided to the coach if a student-athlete is going home with someone other than their parent from a game.
Kennett Fan Gear: Barn Door Screen Printers will soon be featuring Kennett Apparel - Sweatshirts, T-shirts, hats, etc through their online store. Launch date TBA - Please check back at GoKMS and or their WEBSITE and look for the KENNETT link.
I am looking forward to an exciting school year! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Go Eagles!
Gredel Shaw, Kennett Middle School Athletic Coordinator
