Return to School Information Update

Kankakee Valley Schools are excited to welcome students back to school on Wednesday, August 12th

As we prepare to return to school, we have put together a video to help families understand some of the adjustments that students will experience at school this year.  We hope this answers a few questions you may have.  Return to School video for parents and students can be found here:

Please note that this is a regular start day and not a late start Wednesday.  The first late start day will be the following Wednesday, August 19th

Student schedules and teacher assignments are now available through Skyward Family Access.  These are still subject to change. 

We are requesting transportation information from you.  When you log in to your Skyward Family Access account, please choose ONLINE FORMS and then locate the Transportation Form.  Here, you will find your assigned bus driver and their information.  You may contact your drivers to find out their estimated pick up and drop off times.  We would also ask you to indicate how you plan to have your child transported to school.  This will help us anticipate how many children will be on the bus and how to best manage our parent drop off/pick up lines. 

Elementary parents, please be aware that on Wednesday, August 12th, we will not be able to allow visitors into the school buildings.  Parents will be asked to stay in cars during student drop off and allow your students to enter the building on their own.  Parents who do walk students to the doors will be asked to remain outside of the school as the students enter. 

Students that will be attending virtually will receive communication from the schools.  K-5 students will have the opportunity to exchange their Chromebooks and pick up new devices, along with learning materials, on August 11th.  Families will hear from their schools with more details.  Students in grades 6-12 will receive email communication on August 11th to share their access information for the PLATO program. 

We look forward to welcoming all of our KVSC Kougars back to school on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.  Let’s make this a great school year!!
