TRAFFIC FLOW PLAN

King Parents-

We are excited to offer you a new morning student drop off option. Due to parent feedback concerning traffic issues on Ivey Ranch Road near, the front of the school, King will be emending its traffic plan with the city.

Starting Januarys 4th, we will be opening the gate on Mesa drive near the edge of the tennis courts. Parents will be able to park along the west side of Mesa drive, and students may enter at the “tennis court gate”. There will be a Security guard manning this gate from 7am until 730am Monday through Friday.

The West side of Mesa drive provides ample pull-in and pull-out space so please avoid the traffic on Ivey Ranch at the front of school by dropping your student at the new entry gate starting January 4th.

 

Best,

Greg Smedley

monthly newsletter.jpg

Principal Smedley is very excited to provide the monthly Middle Years News Letter for parents.

The purpose of the newsletter is to show parents how to improve their children's school success- and behavior-during the middle years. 

Middle grade children go through dramatic changes and desperately need their parents’ support. Many parents want to help, but aren’t sure what to do. With Middle Years, this will provide you with articles that will help:

  • understand their middle graders’ behavior
  • build respect, responsibility, empathy, and more
  • support homework and study skills
  • stay involved—middle-school style
  • set age-appropriate rules and expectations
  • promote health and safety
  • emphasize the importance of education
