School will be closed on November 19th

Kankakee Valley School Corporation will be closing school on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. While this day was not part of our original school calendar, we hope we are providing you with enough notification to be able to make child-care arrangements for the day if needed.

Support Our Troops

In honor of our Veterans, we will collect items to send to our troops overseas from November 4 - 20.  Information on the ideal items we are collecting has been sent home with the students.

Parent Survey

Kankakee Valley School Corp. (KVSC) is surveying all parents to gauge interest and determine if we should offer before school care for students in grades K-5.  If you are interested please complete the survey below.  Note: We are gathering information and this does not mean that KVSC will offer this care in the future.  However, it is important for us to reach out to our parents to gauge interest.  This would be a paid hourly service with a yearly registration fee and must be a self-sufficient program.  There will be no transportation provided to or from before school programs.  Parents will be required to drop off at the school.  The survey can be found at this link:

Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful

Coats & Jackets - Please be sure to send your child to school with a coat or jacket so that he/she is dressed to go outside for recess.  If your child is already missing one that they wore to school, we already have several in the lost and found. 

Emergency School Closing - Winter weather is just around the corner, and that means we need to be prepared for delays, closings, and early dismissals!  During registration we gathered the information to send out phone calls via School Messenger if that is needed, but if any of your information has changed since then, please make sure that you go into the Skyward Parent Portal and update the pertinent information. Delays, closings, and early dismissals will also be posted on the school's website at www.kv.k12.in.us and on the following radio/TV stations: 

WAKE             Valparaiso 1500 AM          WLIE            Valparaiso 105.5 FM

WZVN             Lowell 107.1 FM                WXRD          Lowell 103.9 FM

School Hours

Kankakee Valley Intermediate School hours are 8:40 a.m. -  3:17 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 9:10 a.m. - 3:17 p.m. on Wednesday.  Children who do not ride the bus are not permitted on school grounds until 8:20 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and 8:50 a.m. on Wednesdays.  Students must remain in their cars in the drop-off/pick-up lane until the vehicle is parked in the designated area.  If you are dropping off after the doors are closed, you must come in through the front door and come to the office to sign your student in.

Transportation/Bus Changes

In order to provide an accurate drop-off location, changes in bus arrangements must be in our office prior to 1:00 p.m.  The best situation is for students to have a note to give to the office in the morning.  If arrangements change during the day, that change needs to be phoned in prior to 1:00 p.m.  Please do not send this information via email as email is not checked on a regular basis.
