  • Tuesday Weather Update

    Snow 11-29-2022 (Tuesday)! Currently, the plan is to be OPEN for classes tonight.

    The snow has shifted, for the time being, to more rain and made driving conditions bearable. Please use your own judgement on your own situation. Classes can be made up and we don’t want anyone doing anything they feel is unsafe. There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect, but it seems to target mostly areas outside of Kent. Tomorrow may be a different situation, however. Reminder that we tend to follow Kent School District on whether to stay open. Please check back then.

    Special Note: Currently Testing is still scheduled for this Friday Dec. 2. This may change depending on what happens the next couple of days. Thanks for your understanding.
