From the President’s Pen

Dear KML Family,

As we approach exam week next week, our students continue to work diligently while enjoying their time together as a KML family. Each morning as I welcome the students, I can see their resilience in finishing the year strong. Please pray for all our students and, in particular, our seniors as they go through the many emotions the end of a school year can bring. Pray they take the time to enjoy their last days and events and that they continue to encourage one another. God has blessed us in so many ways in what has been a very trying year for many. For that we are so thankful! God’s continued blessings to our entire KML family as we transition to summer soon.

In Jesus,

President Luehring

All students are expected to arrive at school at the regular time each day. Students who have study hall/commons for the first period of each day (periods 1, 4, 7) are NOT allowed to miss those periods.

Those who have study hall/commons for the last period of each day (periods 3, 6, 8) are allowed to leave early as long as their parent has emailed with an excuse by at least the day before. Parents should email office@kmlhs.org to excuse their student for this circumstance. This applies to students who have multiple study halls/commons after Chapel (periods 2 & 3 or periods 5 & 6) as well. Students will NOT be allowed to call home on the day of their study hall/commons to request last minute permission. Students who are excused from the last period study hall/commons are required to leave campus and are not allowed to return until after school is dismissed. All classes, with the exception of study hall/commons, will have a test or a meaningful learning experience planned for that period.

*Please note: If your student has Learning Center for their last period, they need parental permission as well as permission from Mrs. Krause in order to be excused.

Due to the shortened school day, there will be no hot lunch or cafeteria service on any of the exam days.
