Unfortunately we are experiencing issues district wide with our phones. We are working diligently to fix the issue. We are sorry for the inconvenience. If you must get a hold of your child's school, please send an email to the secretary. Thank you for your patience.
So thankful for the tremendous support for our schools, staff, and, most importantly, for Kelso kids. Voters approved the levy that will restore, sustain, and enhance essential educational programs, maintenance, and more. Thank you! #StrongSchoolsStrongerCommunity
Health care specialists, safety officers, advisors, and coaches are an important part of your child's educational experience. These are almost entirely funded by the local levy. Please vote by February 11. #StrongSchoolsStongerCommunity
