Kiski Area Upper Elementary School Learning Has No Boundaries - Every Child. Every Classroom. Every Day.

Welcome Back!

Dear KAUE Families, 


On behalf of the staff at Kiski Area Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! We are excited to begin a productive school year with you and your child/children, and we are eagerly anticipating the start of the new year.  


I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that the first day of school will take place tomorrow, Thursday, August 26, 2021.  If you have not already done so, please visit our district website for bus assignments and estimated pickup/drop off times.  For parents that plan to drive their child/children to school, drop-off is in front of the building’s main entrance, and students should not be dropped off any earlier than 8:38 am.  Pick-up can occur any time after 3:20 pm.  Please remember that although masks are optional within the school building, they are required for all on the school bus. 

Schedules were mailed to families on Friday, August 6, 2021, and these assignments are also available through Skyward Student or Skyward Family Access. 

All students attending school in-person will receive Google Classroom codes from their classroom teachers over the next two days; however, if you would like your child to have access to these classrooms ahead of time, click here for a list of content codes.  Please be sure to select the code that corresponds with your child’s current grade level and subject, as there is a set of codes for 5th graders that is different from 6th graders. (Any student attending school virtually through our Distance Learning model should refer to the classroom codes sent earlier this week)

If you were unable to participate in yesterday’s Meet the Teacher virtual event, a recording of each teacher’s presentation is now available for you to view.  The video links have replaced the meeting codes in our original document, and can be accessed by clicking here

As always, if you have any questions regarding the start of school tomorrow, please contact our main office at 724-727-3421.  Again, welcome back for a new year at Kiski Area Upper Elementary.  Our staff is looking forward to working with you to ensure that your children can achieve their highest potential.
