Welcome to Keller-Harvel Elementary
The doors open at 7:25 a.m. Staff will be outside every morning between 7:35-7:55 a.m. to help your child get out of the car. You may use either lane to drop off your child. For the safety of everyone, we ask that you not change lanes. Staff will direct all students to enter through the cafeteria foyer doors at the front of the school. During dismissal at 3:10 p.m. , K-1st grade car riders will use the inside lane and 2nd-4th grade car riders will use the outside lane. Parents who are picking up students from the gym, will park then enter the gym near the bike racks. Carpools of 3+ KHES students are welcome to use the bus loop off Johnson Rd to drop off and pick up students. All parents/guardians must have their pick-up sign. For the safety of our students, all visitors without a sign will be asked to go to our main office to show proper identification. Traffic flow will be the same as in previous years. Traffic is typically busier during the first weeks of school and we appreciate your patience.
Beginning the second day of school all students and teachers will start in the cafeteria with a schoolwide morning assembly at 7:55am. This assembly will include the pledges, a moment of silence, birthday wishes, and daily announcements. This is a time for the entire school to be together to create a strong community, share celebrations, learn about important topics, and gain an awareness of events on campus. Students who arrive 7:25-7:55 will be directed to enter at the front of the school through the cafeteria foyer doors (closest to the cafeteria) and proceed directly to the cafeteria for morning assembly. Students who arrive after 7:55 will need to check-in at the office for a tardy pass. Parents are invited to attend morning assembly all year, after first going to the office for a visitor's badge.
Parents/guardians are always welcome to eat with their child. Due to limited seating and safety concerns, friends are not allowed to join other students at the guest tables. We encourage guests to put away cell phones to enjoy quality time with their child.
Procedures for visitors will apply throughout the entire school day. All visitors will be required to enter through the office, provide picture identification, and obtain a visitor sticker/badge before proceeding to any other part of the building. This procedure ensures we know who is in the building at all times. Office staff will verify the visitor is a parent, guardian, or approved contact for the student. Guests are required to exit the building through the front doors during school hours.
