I’d like to offer a warm welcome to all of our KEYS Academy families for the 2023-2024 School Year!

For the 2023-2024 school year, in-person learning for students and staff will be conducted Monday through Friday. Our school day starts a little earlier this year at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. Virtual learning is still available, as needed, due to quarantine or health conditions.

We ask that you continue to monitor your child for any cold like, flu like, stomach distress, body aches, fevers, and headache symptoms. If your child is displaying any symptoms, please do not send them to school and contact us immediately. Please be aware of the multiple viruses circulating in our community (Flu, COVID, R.S.V, Noravirus, etc.) at any given time and help us to keep contagion at a minimum in our schools.

KEYS Academy has a dedicated staff supporting our students and school, and we are committed to partnering with parents to help your children grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Please feel free to reach out any time.

We are going to have a fantastic year at KEYS! On behalf of our entire staff, we look forward to working with you and your children and thank you for your cooperation and support to keep our school and families safe!
