Welcome to Katherine G. Johnson Elementary

  • Katherine G Johnson Elementary School

Principal's Message

  • Good evening, Katherine G. Johnson Elementary families.

    As was communicated earlier this week, Katherine G. Johnson students in grades 2, 3, and 4 will temporarily attend Naches Trail Elementary to start the school year. Students in grades K, 1, and 5 will temporarily attend Clover Creek Elementary. Students in our ILC/Structure programs will temporarily attend Thompson Elementary.

     Transportation Information:

    • Siblings, regardless of what school they are temporarily attending, will have the same bus stop. They will be picked up at the same time and ride the bus together. The first stop will be Naches Trail followed by Clover Creek.
    • Katherine G. Johnson students in all three schools will follow the same schedule. Our school day will start at 9:20 a.m. and end at 3:50 p.m.
    • Your student’s bus stop location and time will be shared in the next couple of weeks.
    • We encourage families to use bus transportation during this temporary transition.
    • Students in our ILC/Structure programs at Thompson will have their transportation arranged through the Special Services Department.

     I also want to clarify some specific aspects to all families impacted by this temporary transition.

    • When KGJ opens, students will stay with their assigned KGJ teacher and classmates.
    • Our Open House will be virtual this year. Parents will hear more about the day-to-day structure at each school during the transition, as well as have an opportunity to meet your student’s teacher and ask questions.
      • September 1st at 5:30 p.m.: Grades 2, 3 and 4
      • September 2nd at 5:30 p.m.: Grades K, 1, 5 and ILC/Structure
      • Zoom links will be shared in the coming weeks.

     Our staff is excited to meet all students and their families. Thank you for your patience as we go through this temporary transition together.

     Go Voyagers!
