    KMS Canned Food Drive

    Attention KMS parents, students and staff, there is a canned food drive currently until May 6th. Please bring in canned food to your 1st period teacher and join the competition. If you donate enough cans, you have the chance to win a KHS Pool party for the first place class, a Pizza Party for second place, or a Movie and Snack party for the third place class. For every 5 cans you donate, you earn a lion-pride card from your 1st period teacher. Our goal is 1,600 cans for the whole school, we know you CAN do it! You have until Friday, May 6th to achieve this goal. The cans will be donated to the Kerman Food pantry to help those in need in our community.

    Tardy Policy - please don't be late to school!

    Tardiness is disruptive to the educational process and deprives other students in the classroom of valuable instructional time. Disciplinary action will be taken on students with excessive tardies. (Refer to KUSD policy 5144.1). A tardy can only be excused due to illness, doctor's appointment, family funeral, or school activity. Any other reason is considered an unexcused tardy. If a student is reporting to school late, he/she will report to the Attendance Office with a parent/guardian call to the attendance secretary or a note from the parent/guardian. The student must sign in, and the attendance secretary will issue a tardy pass to the student. An excused tardy can only be issued by office attendance personnel.


    Dress Code Policy

    Please review the dress code in the handbook.  A "dress code cheat sheet" link can be found below in the related files.  Students who are not following the Kerman Unified Dress Code will be referred to the administration office.  They will need to fix their dress code violation before being allowed to return to class.
