If your student eats breakfast at school, they may arrive 1/2 hour early. Please do not let your child arrive earlier as we do not have proper supervision to ensure your child's safety.
Do you know that you need to

SKSD Highly Capable Services Program Overview
Highly capable service options at SKSD include a variety of options per grade level. All services emphasize higher order thinking skills. A wide range of instructional strategies are utilized to ensure that the diverse learning needs/styles are met for all students.
The highly capable program was developed in order to address the special needs of highly capable students. The program focuses on academic rigor, social and emotional needs, creative and critical thinking. We strive to provide students challenging and stimulating curriculum along with the opportunity to be among their intellectual peers. We also create a positive environment where individual ideas and risk-taking are valued. Nominated students are tested each spring for services the following year.
