From the Principal’s Desk

Kloefkorn Families,

I want you to know that I am bursting with pride as I think about how our students and staff are adapting and accepting our new normal!  EVERYONE is on board while wearing face coverings and taking social distancing seriously.  Thank you, parents, for being so supportive as you’ve followed our new guidelines.  We know this is not easy but having a positive and a can-do attitude truly makes a difference for everyone in our Kloefkorn community. 

Our theme this year is “Grit”.  You’ll hear our students and staff saying “I have grit and I won’t quit.” I hope you will use this language at home. I am positive it is going to be a very unique and awesome school year!

Mrs. Bowhay

Proud Principal

Attendance

An important part of school success is regular, on‐time attendance. This includes attendance through the end of the day. Please contact the office if your child(ren) will be absent from school. You can contact us at 402-436-1148 before 8:30 am and leave a voicemail or email Carin at csandma@lps.org and Rene at rholz@lps.org. Attendance can also be submitted on the ParentVue Portal. 

MAP Testing:

Lincoln Public Schools teachers will soon be administering the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) to our kindergarten through 5th grade students. 

During these testing periods, we encourage you to make sure your children are in school unless

they are ill. The best preparation for these tests is to come to school well rested with a positive

attitude toward taking the tests. It is important your child do their best on these tests so that

LPS teachers and administrators have accurate information about your child’s knowledge and

skills for instructional planning.
