In Case of Inclement Weather

Snow, ice and wind can impact our ability to conduct school activities as planned. Depending on the road conditions, the district may choose to cancel school or shorten the day. There are may ways that you can stay informed. Check out our Inclement Weather Plan  for more information.

Change in Parking Policy

Beginning on Monday, October 1st, 2018, parking at St. Mary’s church will not be permitted by staff and students during the school day.  The parking lot will also not be available for parent/students drop-off and pick-up before and after school.  Due to liability and insurance issues, the church is no longer able to provide their parking lot for use.  The school district will also need to lock the gate in the fence between St. Mary’s and Coweeman Middle School.  We appreciate your help in continuing to support a positive working relationship with our school neighbors.

The intent of Kelso High School’s health room is to provide emergency care until a student can be released to a parent/guardian or taken to a medical facility. There is very little space in the health room. The one available cot is for students who are truly ill, waiting to go home. The health room is not available to students for resting or sleeping. In order to be admitted temporarily to the health room, students must:

  1. Obtain a note from their classroom teacher.
  2. Check in with the nurse and sign in.
  3. Wait in the health room for release to parents/guardian or emergency contact.

If a student requires emergency aid, the above regulations will not be necessary. In this event, a student should report immediately to any Kelso High School staff member.


Washington State Law (RCW 28.A.210.260) prohibits staff members from distributing any kind of medication to a student without the appropriate procedure implemented. A current “Medication in School” form must be completed by the student’s medical practioner and parent/guardian, and must be on file in the KHS Health Room for medications that must be taken during school hours. The medication must be in its original container and properly labeled by the pharmacy with the student’s name and time and amount of dosage. Only the school nurse or designated secretary may dispense the medication to the student. No medication of any kind (including aspirin, Benadryl, Mylanta, etc.) are kept in Kelso High School’s health room for distribution to any student.
