Registration-Back to School-Parent Survey-Immunizations

Hello Kanab Middle School Parents and Students,

This is Mr. Bateman, principal of Kanab Middle School.  Welcome to KMS-Home of the Regulators.  I hope each of you are having a wonderful summer!  We look forward to starting the new school year and have some key dates/information as we get closer to starting.

Parent Survey-Reopening
Kane County School District is looking forward to reopening schools for the 2020-2021 school year in just a few short weeks.  Below is a parent/guardian survey to determine the number of students in our schools who choose to participate with in-person attendance wearing masks (See video message from local physician Dr. Hollingshead about masks and precautions), partial in person attendance (blended learning), or all online attendance.  We appreciate your help in completing this survey.    If the all online or blended learning option is selected, we will setup a meeting with you and our school team in the near future.

Parent Survey

Online Registration (Both registrations are required)
Online registration is open and located on Aspire/SIS at https://kane.sedck12.org/Students/Register/Start

All parents with KMS students will need to re-register and verify information to ensure accuracy of phone numbers, addresses and to fill out the necessary forms. It is very important we are updated this includes new addresses and emergency contacts. Our district will also be changing to a new parent notification program, Remind.  As student information is updated, please make sure to put a cell phone as the primary phone number if possible.  Text notifications for notification and emergency purposes can be used with this new system, but an identified cell phone number will need to be listed as the primary phone number.

Walk-in Registration (Both registrations are required)
Everyone will also need to come to our school to get the necessary lockers, pay school fees, and have a tour around to the different classrooms (7th Grade and new students).

Dates/Times: 8th grade registration will be on August 5th and our 7th grade registration will be on August 6th.  Times for both days will go from 8:30am-3:00pm.

Registration Signups (Walk-in Registration signups are to reduce the amount of people in the building):

Immunizations:
All students coming into the 7th grade this year will need to have all their immunizations up to date and current before they can register for 7th grade or fill out a record of exemption from immunizations.  The requirements for immunizations for the 7th grade are both varicella shots, Tdap booster and meningococcal.  Our local health department, clinic and local pharmacies have these immunizations available.  This year we will not have the vaccinations available at registration.  Please do not put this off until the last minute, as sometimes the vaccine may not be available.   The number of the health department is 644-2537.  Christa Werlinger or Shana Chavez will be happy to help you with any questions or information you may need.

Lunch Applications 
We encourage everyone to fill out the online lunch application forms. Please be sure to do this!  Forms need to be completed on a yearly basis and only one application is needed per family within the school district.  The link to the forms is found in your Aspire/SIS portal under your child’s profile.

Fee Waivers
Please note, there is a new process for all Fee Waivers.  Those who qualify for waivers will need to meet with administration, bringing in proof of income (W-2/Tax forms) for this verification process in order to be approved.  Fee waiver forms will be available at registration.

Back to School Night
Back to School Night will be held virtually or outside depending on guidelines.  Please be sure to save the date of August 25 on your calendars.  More info will be sent out as we get closer to this event.

School Website
Check out our updated school website for more information at http://kms.kanek12.org.  It is mobile-friendly and contains many resources such as our new school schedules, the school calendar, lunch menus, educational links to websites, plus many more items.

Thanks and Go Regulators!
-Mr. Bateman
