Aeries Email Delivery Issues?

If you think you haven't been receiving emails you should have received, please be aware that many email vendors mis-identify legitimate mass-mailed communications as "spam" or "junk" mail. Here is a set of instructions to "whitelist" Aeries/SignalKit as a "safe sender" with some of the most common email providers.

Keep in mind that you can always view ALL messages that have been sent to you on your Aeries Communications Feed, either online or in the Aeries Mobile App - available for free download for Apple or Android.

November 3, 2020 School Board Elections

Marin County School Board elections are scheduled to be held on November 3, 2020 as part of the general election. The terms of School Board members Quoc Tran and David Riedel end in November. David has committed to run and Quoc remains undecided. Parties interested in learning more about running for one of the seats will find information on the Marin County Elections website. Note that there are county registration deadlines in the summer (July 13 - August 7) so it is not too early to start considering this option if you are interested.
If you want to learn more about the role of a School Board Trustee, please review the documents in the overview packet linked below that Superintendent Liz Schott and Board President Heather McPhail Sridharan presented during the May 19th Prospective Board Member Orientation. Please feel free to reach out to any current KSD Trustee or Superintendent Schott anytime with questions. We welcome all interest and involvement.

If your TK-7th grade student will not be returning to Kentfield schools next year: please let Lisa Sandberg (Kent) at lsandberg@kentfieldschools.org or Lynn Bartha (Bacich) at lbartha@kentfieldschools.org know as soon as possible to help us with scheduling and staffing for the 2020-2021 school year.

If your student is currently enrolled in Kentfield schools and will be returning in the fall: you do not have to do anything to facilitate that automatic continuation process unless you have been contacted directly by your school. You will receive information about the data confirmation process in August.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, all school tours have been cancelled for the remainder of this school year.
