Returning Students

Welcome back KPS Families! 

Returning Student Registration for the 2020/2021 school year will be very simple for you.  If your child was enrolled in KPS for the 2019/2020 school year they will automatically be enrolled/registered for the 2020/2021 school year.  If any of your contact information has changed (address, phone number, parent email, etc.) OR you are not planning on your child returning to Kentwood Public Schools in the fall, please contact your school directly.  Our school offices will open on August 4, 2020.

Kentwood Public Schools is excited to offer parents and students a new service known as SchoolMessenger. SchoolMessenger is a notification system which will be used to communicate important information to KPS families. This system is capable of communicating via phone, email and text messages. SchoolMessenger will be used to broadcast school closings, delays and emergency situations. SchoolMessenger will also be used to communicate non-emergency information such as attendance information and important event reminders.

SchoolMessenger operates off the data contained in our Synergy Student Information System. It is important that parents keep their contact information up to date. Any changes to address, phone numbers and email need to be made through the office at the child’s school.

Text Message Opt-in Procedure
To opt-in to receive important information via text message, you must first opt-in to this service. To do so, text “YES” or “Y” to 67587. Please note: KPS is not responsible for any text message charges you may incur.
