Barnes, Beacon Hill, Catlin, Huntington and some KHS buses are running a little late this afternoon (2/24/20). We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. They are on their way now.
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

Levy fact #10: Levy dollars are used to pay for staff, programs, services, and materials not fully funded by the state. #StrongSchoolsStrongerCommunity
The local replacement levy is used to restore, sustain, and enhance curriculum, technology, staffing, and other program costs that the state does not fund.
The replacement levy on the February ballot takes the place of the existing levy expiring this year, it is not a new tax. Even with the passage of the replacement levy, school funding tax rates will still be lower than they were in 2017 - 2019.
Access to Redpath Dr. in front of Huntington Middle will be closed today. Please plan on using an alternate route.
