Dear Kila School Parents,


On behalf of the Kila School teachers and support staff, I want to welcome you to the 2013-2014 school year.  Our school MISSION is: “Doing What’s Best for Students.”  We are looking forward to working with you to do whatever it takes to make a positive difference in the lives of all students!

Please take time to read the Kila school policy.  

Item Policy 2013-2014

There are many items that need to be communicated to you at the beginning of the year.  Many of these things are in the student handbook, but are important enough that I wanted to include them in a shorter version for your convenience.  Please read and note the following information.

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE:  School will be open at 7:00 A.M. each school morning for those students whose parents work in Kalispell or must meet the high school bus.  Before School Programs forms are available in the office.  There is no charge for this program.  This program is structured reading practice and/or homework study time.  Early students must stay in the area designated by the supervisor.

The driveway is one-way, with entrance off of Kila Road and exit on to Kila Hill Road .  Please pull over to one side and don’t block the drive as you drop off or pick up children.



This year at Kila we have a new student information system called Infinite Campus.  That means you will be able to access your child’s progress and assignment on-line or through your smart-phone in real time.  Also this program has a food service program that allows you to access you child’s account balance and pay your balance on-line. 


NOTICES AND BULLETINS:  A school newsletter will be sent home every Monday with students.  Please be on the watch for these notices.  There is a bulletin board just inside the gym, and in the hallway by the office for special notices. Notices may also be posted on the bulletin board at the Kila Post Office.

Parents/Community members wishing to put information into the newsletter must have information to school secretary by Wednesday at 3:30 PM


Cell Phones and Other Electronic Equipment:

Students may use cellular phones, pagers, and other electronic signaling devices on campus before school begins and after school ends.  These devices must be  kept out of sight and turned off during the instructional day.  Unauthorized use of such devices disrupts the instructional program and distracts from the learning  environment.  Therefore, unauthorized use is grounds for confiscation of the device by school officials, including classroom teachers.  Confiscated devices will be returned to the parent or  guardian.  Repeated unauthorized use of such devices will result in disciplinary action.



The policy of the Board of Trustees of the Kila School District #20 is to provide students with a school environment free from harassment, intimidation, and bullying.  The Kila District #20 will not tolerate this form of behavior.


Bullying is repeated exposure over time to negative actions.  Bullying means there is an imbalance of power so that the child being victimized has trouble defending himself or herself.  Bullying is aggression.  It can take many forms, including physical, verbal, or psychological.  Bullying is when one person repeatedly uses power in a willful manner with the aim of hurting another individual.  (Bully-Proofing Your School, A Comprehensive Approach for Elementary Schools, p. 9)



These are a few of the beginning-of-the year details.  I will share additional information and school events with you throughout the year as the need arises.

As your principal, I look forward to working with you to make Kila School a special school; a place we all share with pride.  This is your child’s school, but it is also your school.  My door is open to you at any time.  Please stop in and share your thoughts, concerns, or ideas with me.  I am looking forward to a very successful year.  Thank you for your support!
