Kneeland Elementary School will be reopening campus to full, on site instruction resuming on August 31st, 2020. Instruction will be Monday-Friday 8:30-2:45, with school bus service to and from Freshwater in the morning and afternoon.

Kneeland Elementary School is committed to offering each child (grades Tk-8th) a quality education founded on the values exemplified in rural schools: a close bond among staff, students, parents, and community; and an individualized program meeting the varying needs of the students. Kneeland Elementary School continues to provide an excellent educational opportunity which enables all students to achieve academic success and realize their full potential.

“While we are planning for a safe reopening and taking COVID-19 very seriously, we also take the emotional and social well-being as well as academics of our students seriously.” Says Lauren Sizemore, Board of Trustees president. Sizemore goes on to say “We are fortunate to have a small student body population, large classrooms and 2 acres of outdoor space. We feel confident in our ability to keep our staff and students safe.”

Kneeland Elementary School is dedicated to providing an exceptional educational experience for our TK thru 8th grade students. Kneeland School continues to promote academic rigor, foster an environment where students are engaged in learning, work in close partnership with families and community and provide a safe and welcoming environment, while ensuring emotional and social needs are met.
