Community Use of District Facilities

Kelso School District encourages the use of it's buildings for activities which enhance the lives of those in our community. District policy requires that all organized events occurring one or more hours before or after school, are requested and approved using our online facility use program.  If you are having difficulty, please contact the Community Use program coordinator.    The Facilities Use Calendar reflects all scheduled activities district wide.

Pest & Weed Management

Our detailed, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan aligns with our efforts of keeping the school environment safe and healthy for students, staff and visitors.

As much as possible, we rely on non-chemical controls such as student-adopted garden areas, good classroom housekeeping and the acceptance of weeds in lawns. We do spray for pests and weeds when necessary, but never when students are in school. Typically we spray during the winter, spring or summer breaks when children are absent. In the case of an infestation requiring immediate attention, we schedule treatment for a weekend in order to allow 48 hours before students return to the building. During the 48 hours a bright green notification is posted on the entrance door and in the area of treatment. If you wish to receive written notification when we spray within 48 hours of students being in the building, you must complete a notification form which is sent home at the beginning of the school year. These forms are also available by calling 501-1931.
