At Kay Carl, we are committed to your child's success. Here is some general information that explains how our school works. If you don't find what you're looking for here, give us a call.
What is it like to go to school at Kay Carl?
Office Hours: 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
School Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 3:26 p.m.
Gates Open: 8:55a.m.

It is the responsibility of parents to ensure student attendance. On the first day of return after an absence, a student should bring a written note explaining the absence. The note must be signed by a parent or guardian.
When picking up students, parents should wait until the teacher has officially dismissed the class from the designated areas. Students should walk safely to and from school, crossing streets only at the corner. It always best to walk with someone else. Students should immediately report a suspicious stranger or unusual incident to the office.
When there is an emergency on campus we place a high priority on protecting the safety of our students and employees. In emergency situations, if everyone knows what to do, all involved can Stay Calm and Stay Safe.

Visitors & Volunteers
Visitors are required to check in at the front office when entering the building. In order not to interrupt the educational process, arrangements need to be made in advance to visit a classroom. At Kay Carl Elementary School, we truly appreciate having parents, guardians, grandparents, community and business volunteers.
SB 287 now requires all volunteers to be fingerprinted if they have unsupervised OR regular contact with students. Regular is defined as at least four times a month.
If you are a volunteer who has unsupervised or regular contact with students, you can read more here:
Volunteers can start the online application process here.

On campus, the Las Vegas Parks and Recreation Department offers a Safekey Program before and after school hours. It is suggested that parents & guardians sign children up at the beginning of the school year, so that if an emergency should arise, a child can be safely placed in Safekey. Morning Safekey hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 8:50 a.m. After school hours are from 3:26 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Children can be enrolled by visiting www.lasvegasnevada.gov/safekey.
Health Services/ Medication
Students who become ill at school will be sent to the office to see the First Aide Safety Assistant (FASA). If the illness or possible injury is of such a nature that the student needs to go home a parent will be notified immediately. A school nurse is available on a limited weekly basis. If a student needs to take prescription medication during the school day, a medical release form must be completed.
Parent Volunteer Committee
While we don't have a PTA or PTO, we have a parent volunteer committee. Indeed, we're always looking for parents and guardians to help our school. There are events to be planned and efforts like sight word testing. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Library books are loaned to students free of charge. Students are financially responsible for lost or damaged books. Fines are determined by Mrs. Haddad.
It is essential for the school to have your home, work and emergency telephone numbers. Any changes need to be given to the office as soon as possible. Your cooperation in this matter is of vital importance.
Parent Teacher Conferences
Parents will be asked to attend one formal parent-teacher conference during the school year. Other conferences may be requested by a parent or teacher as needed.
Progress reports will be issued between regular grading periods. All progress reports require a parent signature and should be returned to the teacher.
Important news from the KCES Specialist expectations.
Textbooks are loaned to students free of charge. Students are financially responsible, however, for lost or damaged books.
Toys and Other Items
Students are not to bring toys, stuffed or live animals, electronic games or other non-academic items to school.
Students are allowed to use the telephone in cases of necessity and emergency. Permission must be given by office personnel in order to use the office telephone. Students cannot, however, be called from class to receive a telephone call.
Student Check-Out Policy
Parents who need to remove children from school must report to the office and sign the student out. Students will not be released directly from the classroom. Students will only be released to individuals listed on the student card, so updates are essential when changes occur.
