First Day of School

Please Confirm Your Seat!
A detailed bus list with children’s names are available in each school office for confirmation as needed. Be sure to inform the school secretary if you have moved since the last school year.
All students are notified of their assigned bus at registration or by direct mail. Parents are asked to escort Kindergarten students to and from the bus stops during the first two weeks or until the students learn the routine. Kindergarten students will be provided with a tag bearing their name, address, phone number, bus number, and teacher name. Special note for elementary families — your child’s safety is our priority. It will take a few days for students to become confident with our bus dismissal procedures. During the first few days of school our bus dismissal takes longer because we are checking the bus lists and ensuring that students are on the correct bus. Please anticipate a 15 – 20 minute delay in the arrival of your children at home during the first week of school.
All students are expected to be at the bus stop five minutes in advance of the assigned time. King’s Academy cannot provide irregular service to multiple locations. Irregular service dramatically increases the possibility of errors. We will attempt to satisfy requests for pick up or drop off of your children at different locations if the locations are consistent: that is, always one location for pick up and always one location for drop off. Please help by limiting changes and eliminating requests for a friend to ride.
Located on Milwaukee’s Northwest side, an area under-served by quality elementary school options, King’s Academy helps fill an important niche in its community. It offers a nurturing environment in which students and parents are held to high standards and supported by a dynamic, growing and engaged “extended family” of teachers, volunteers and community members.
