From the President’s Pen
Dear KML Family,
We are excited to welcome our largest enrollment in history once again, and we look forward to serving you as a part of this KML family. Please pray for our families, students, faculty, and staff as we begin another year focused on the foundation of our school, Jesus Christ. We can’t wait to have our students on campus every day. What a blessing it will be to gather our Christian community together!
2023-24 School Pictures
School pictures will be taken on the first day of school, Thursday, August 17, for all students. If you wish to order photos of your student, you may pre-order and pay online at kmlhs.org/schoolpics. Deadline to place order: August 21 (ordering link is removed after this date). Picture retake day is the morning of Thursday, September 21.
Assigned parking will not begin until sometime during the week of August 21. Students will be notified of the exact date when assigned parking goes into effect.
To ensure a safe school environment, KML has partnered with a third-party company to screen all visitors prior to their admittance to the school building when school is in session. Visitors who plan to go beyond the Main Office should make sure they have a state-issued photo ID along with them prior to entering the building. If you are picking up SCRIP or dropping off an item for your student, this does not apply. It is only applicable if you plan to go beyond the Main Office. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Reporting a Student Absence
In cases where a student is absent, the parent/guardian should follow this procedure:
If an email is not sent, the parent/guardian should send a signed, written explanation (including the above required information) on the first day the student returns to school. The written excuse should be turned in to the Main Office. Failure to turn in a written excuse will result in an unexcused absence on the student’s permanent record.
Senior Picture Guidelines & Deadline
It’s time for senior pictures for students in the class of 2024! Having your senior pictures taken can be a time consuming process, so we recommend choosing a photographer and contacting him/her right away. All senior pictures must be submitted by January 15, 2024.
Because the yearbook represents Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School, we want to maintain a consistent style and format throughout the book. We do limit the pictures seniors may place in the senior portrait section of the yearbook. The yearbook staff asks that one picture be taken and submitted digitally which meets the guidelines found at kmlhs.org/seniorpics.
Senior pictures are due January 15, 2024. If we do not receive a picture by this date, the student’s ID picture will be placed in the yearbook instead. Please do not wait until the last minute.
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Rebecca Meyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns.
