Parents have professional, working relationships with the teachers and the administrator of the school. Parent representatives actively participate on the KHA Board of Trustees as well as other school committees, such as the School Improvement Team (SIT), Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), and the Local Advisory Committee (LAC) for families of special needs students. KHA is continually working to include families in volunteer opportunities.
KHA relies on families for ideas, feedback, volunteer opportunities, and community support. Please feel free to contact us if there is information you would like to see posted on this page.
Student progress is reported each quarter via a Progress Report (Quarters 1 and 3) or a Report Card (Quarters 2 and 4). The Report Card is standards-based meaning that the topics in the Report Card are directly based on the Common Core Standards and the numerical value reflects where they are in progress towards standard achievement.
What the Numerical Values Mean:
A grade of 1 means that the child is not making adequate progress towards the end of the year standard.
A grade of 2 means that the child is making progress towards the end of the year standard.
A grade of 3 means that the child is meeting the end of the year expectations for the standard.
A grade of 4 means that the child is above end of grade level expectations for the standard.
Children should have homework that extends proficiency in effective study habits and skills; increases the use of knowledge; develops insight and stimulates creativity. Homework should be given at each grade level for the following time/frequency:
Snow has a way of sneaking up on us. Be sure to sign up for RI Broadcasters Association Alerts.

Before School: 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM
After School: 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM
The mission of these Programs is not only to provide childcare, but to also provide a safe, enjoyable atmosphere to students at the end of the school day. On a daily basis, students are provided with a healthy snack, a block of time to play (indoors/outdoors, as the weather permits), and a block of time to focus on homework, if applicable.
The KHA KARES Club is a monthly prepaid program. All students must be signed up for the full month and payment is due in full when the signup sheet is returned.
Childcare assistance is available to qualified students.
If you have any questions regarding childcare, please contact the Office Manager.

KHA receives Federal funds to help support Title I eligible students that attend KHA.
A student qualifies for Title I support if she/he is below the benchmark in reading, writing, or arithmetic. KHA uses Title I funds for after-school tutoring throughout the school year as well as for a summer school program. The after-school tutoring usually takes place once a week, and lasts from ½ hour to 1 hour after school. The summer school program lasts for 2 weeks, 5 days a week, 2 – 4 hours a day.
Both the after school tutoring and summer school programs are taught by KHA certified staff. All instruction using Title I funds is aligned with the KHA curriculum and designed to help students meet state and school-wide standards in all academic areas.
Title I programs are free of charge.
