Updates from Dr. R

Kulp Families- 

I hope that everybody is doing well and enjoying the last few days of summer break. I have a few reminders and updated information for you below. 

Kindergarten Orientation - Monday, August 29 - 9:00 AM-10:30 AM. This event is designed for kindergarten students to attend with one or two adults, where you will have the chance to learn more about kindergarten at Kulp Elementary. 
New Family Orientation - Monday, August 29th from 12:00-12:45 PM. Please RSVP by completing this Google Form, due by August 25th. This event is designed for all of our new families where we will cover the basics of Kulp Elementary.  

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 30th. Students need to arrive at school by 9:00am; they will be dismissed beginning at 3:30pm. The exact arrival/dismissal plans can be found here. Every student is either listed as a "bus rider" or a "walker."  How each student is classified happens automatically by our student management software, based upon the addresses that we have in our system.  In other words, there is no need to sign up for a bus, as this is done for you!  Bus information will be available for parents to view on Monday, August 22nd in HAC. 

If your student has before/after care and you have questions, please contact Marjie Scott at 215-853-1038

Student schedules will be available in HAC on August 22nd. If you have any issues signing into HAC, please email our Tech department, [email protected]

Students will need their ID, distributed on the first day of school, for breakfast, lunch and the bus. Students will all receive free breakfast; lunch is free for students who currently receive free/reduced lunch. Lunch is for purchase for all other students. If you need to complete the free/reduced lunch paperwork, it can be found on our district website. 

I know this is a lot of information, so if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. Please expect weekly communication moving forward throughout the remainder of the school year. 

I look forward to working with all of you this year and am very excited for your child(ren)!
