Class of 2018 Senior Letter

Senior parents: Your child's senior year is one that is full of activities and opportunities. Please review the Senior Letter so you won't miss any of them. 


Changes to Senior Project Requirements

In order to earn a diploma and participate in graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2018 and beyond, students MUST fulfill all coursework and complete a community service project as part of their American Government class. Kelso High will no longer require a presentation component of the Senior Project.

Students must complete 20 hours of community service. Students will need to complete the appropriate paperwork to verify the work and complete the High School and Beyond Plan form. STUDENTS FAILING TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT WILL NOT EARN A DIPLOMA.

For more information on the changes to the Senior Project read Principal Gummel's letter.

School Nurse Information

Nicole Nickel
(360) 501-1853 

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.
