Dear Walls Family,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! 

We are thrilled to have your child as a part of our Walls Family.  Soon, our routines will be well established.  It is so exciting to see the learning that is already taking place!  By now you have received information from your child’s teacher in the form of REMIND, Class Dojo, or a home/school newsletter.  Please remember to check
OFTEN for updates and reminders about daily activities, homework, and special events. 

Many times, kids are exhausted when they arrive home from school (especially at the beginning).  Giving them some down time before “diving in” to homework is
always a great idea.  Additionally, rather than asking, “How was school?” I encourage you to ask more specific questions and engage them in reflecting on their day.  This is a great way to jog their memory and help them recall new things they may have learned!

As parents, there are a few things you need to know about the “to and from school” process. 


ARRIVAL TIME IS 8:30 for car riders and walkers.  At this time, supervision is available.

DISMISSAL TIME IS 3:22 for car riders and walkers, and 3:25 for bus riders.  PLEASE BE PROMPT IF YOU ARE PICKING UP YOUR CHILD FROM SCHOOL.

CHANGES TO YOUR DAILY ARRIVAL/DISMISSAL ROUTINE SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE SCHOOL SECRETARY BY 2:45.  It is difficult to make changes once students are being dismissed from classrooms, and we want to make sure everyone gets home safely and to a supervised location. 

As a parent, I understand how expensive back-to-school time can be.  Please let us know if your child is in need of any items such as a backpack, lunchbox, school supplies, or clothing items.  Along the same line, our lost and found is QUICKLY filling up with new items.  We suggest that you
LABEL EVERYTHING including coats, hats, bags, etc. with your child’s name so that we can help you (and the kids) keep track of things.  Thank you for your help with this!

Thank you for sharing your child with our school family.  I look forward to getting to know you all, and celebrating your child’s success, within our “WALLS.” 

Have a great year!

Principal, Walls Elementary School

The safety of our students is of utmost importance, and keeping you informed is critical when an emergency arises.  Kent City Schools has upgraded to a forms system that allows parents to sign all school forms including emergency medical information on-line.  The District requires that ALL
families utilize this on-line system. If you do not have access to a computer or do not have an email
account, please call the office at 330-676-8300.

This system will allow you to update your child’s information every year without having to fill out new forms or retype everything. If you have more than one student, you can update them all at once.

To access the site, please visit and create a parent account. If you have any problems or questions, please call the office. Currently 50 percent of our families have completed this process.
