All Kent Schools, along with the central admin office, will be closed on Tuesday, Feb. 12 due to inclement weather, the district announced Monday afternoon, Feb. 11:

All Elementary Conferences will be rescheduled for a later date. As another winter storm moves through our region, we must continue to prioritize the safety of students, staff and our entire KSD community.

Conditions will continue to be assessed for Wednesday, February 13 and we will continue to communicate all school closures and delays as early as possible.

We recognize that school closures create schedule changes that are challenging for students, staff and families and appreciate your patience. Make up days are determined though a bargaining process with our labor partner, Kent Education Association. All options will be considered. We will also explore alternative instructional hours with the state Superintendent’s Office of Public Instruction (OSPI). No decisions will be made this week as we continue to manage inclement weather that could result in school delays and closures.
