From the Principal

The holiday season is upon us, and there are many activities going on at school.  November was quite busy with the Scholastic Book Fair and Senior Citizen Luncheon. Thank you to our PTO for volunteering and running the book fair.   Also our gratitude goes to those who helped with our luncheon.  Your generosity and thoughtfulness put a smile on the faces of our guests.
In December, we look forward to other activities and events such as our sing-along, parent teacher conferences and Gingerbread Festival.

For school closings and early dismissals due to inclement weather, the Carmel Central School District will notify local radio stations to alert our community of these changes.  In addition, our District website, CCSD app and our phone messaging system will also provide the same information.  In the event we must dismiss early or cancel school prior to the students arriving, please have an emergency plan in effect.  If there is a delayed opening, AM kindergarten will be cancelled.  If we dismiss early, PM kindergarten will be cancelled.

On behalf of the students and staff here at Kent Primary School, I would like to wish everyone a safe and joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Best Regards,
Tarkan T. Ceng, Principal
