Welcome to KMS Orientation!
Greetings KMS Families,
We are thrilled to have you all join/continue with Kernan Middle School for the upcoming 2022/2023 school year. In preparation for the beginning of the year, we wanted to provide you with information about orientation early so that you can plan.
9:00 - 10:00—8th grade & CSS
10:00 - 11:00—7th grade
11:00 - 12:00—6th grade
There is no formal presentation at Orientation to free parents and students up to visit the stations below and get an opportunity to “walk your schedule.” You can drop off Homeroom school supplies in your child’s 3rd period teacher’s classroom. Below, you will find available stations and locations you can visit. You do not have to go in order or visit each one, just visit those with the information you need. Please help us stick to our time schedule. Teachers and Staff will not be available after 12:00 pm. Thank you and welcome to Kernan Middle School!
