Letter From the Principal

Posted March 15, 2020

Hello KCAA Community. With our extended school closure, I wanted to make sure that you had all of the access and information that we have to date. Our extended break starts Monday 3/16 and will run through Monday, April 7. On Monday 3/16 and Tuesday 3/17, the building will be open only for information and access. There will be no teachers, no classes and no meals. Meals will be available at nearby Lincoln HS per district communication and schedule (breakfast 8-9 a.m. and lunch 12-1 p.m.). KCAA will close down on Wednesday with no access to the building at that time for our crews to begin the disinfecting work. Students will return on Tuesday, April 7th. I wish everyone a healthy break!
