KG Student Belonging Distribution 5.27.20

Student Belonging Distribution - Last Call!

Dear Kent Gardens Families,

We are well into our second day of the student belongings distribution.  We still have many student items in the building.  If you have not signed up for a slot, please do so today.  Our final pick up day is tomorrow so please note the information below to sign up.

Note that some families may choose not to pick up the students’ belongings. If that is your decision, please complete the google form ONLY IF YOU ARE NOT PICKING UP the student belongings. This form will allow us to dispose of the belongings immediately.

In addition, we have held two sessions for medicine pick up.  If you still would like to pick up your medication, please email Pier McGrath at

We have also collected many students’ jackets left in the classrooms.  We will hang the clothing on the fence for your retrieval. Note that only one person per car may approach the fence to retrieve the item.  The items will be donated if left at the school.
