In September 2019 there was an outbreak of mumps in Pender, NE. The school system in the town had students who contracted the disease. Kingsley-Pierson has a very high vaccination rate amongst our students- almost 100%! Thank you parents for helping to keep your child(ren) and their classmates safe by keeping their vaccinations current. To read more about mumps, symptoms, and side effects of the disease please click the link here. If you notice a family member or child with symptoms of mumps please contact your doctor and let the school.
If your student has had a bathroom accident while at school, please consider putting a change of clothing in their backpack in case of a future accident. Back-up clothing in the health office, especially pants and leggings, can get low when none have been returned. Donations of new underwear and new or used leggings or other stretchy pants are always welcomed. Thank you!
