Welcome to the Kirtland Schools’ Key Communicator e-newsletter. We hope to use this tool as a two-way form of communication to share the good news going on in our classrooms, and also provide you with facts in the event of negative situations. We hope you will act as informal communications liaisons with the community and let us know what you’re hearing so we can proactively provide you with the facts of what’s happening in your schools. Thank you for your support!
KIRTLAND LOCAL SCHOOLS UPDATE 11/29/22
Superintendent Chad VanArnhem started the meeting with his report updating the school board and community on the following few topics.
A District Safety Committee Meeting took place with the administrators, Student Resource Officer (SRO), school nurse and the police and fire chiefs on November 18th. Upcoming drills for the staff and cybersecurity measures were two major areas of discussion. All the staff will be going through CPR, First Aide and Stop the Bleed Training as well.
The Board officially approved a resolution for the naming rights of the stadium for a ten year period at a total cost of $200,000 from John Wilson Jr. Mr. Wilson is a Kirtland graduate and the owner of AQUA DOC Lake and Pond Management. We are thankful for Mr. Wilson’s generosity! The Rogers Family (Rogers Field) supported the new stadium naming rights as it benefits our students.
