Building Minds and Memories

KES has approximately 450 students enrolled in grades Pre-K through 5th grade.  We encourage parents and other stakeholders to become involved in our school!  The KES PTO is always looking for parent volunteers to help with school fundraisers and other projects.  If you would like to become involved in PTO, please call Dr. Karon Ellis, Principal, at 729-5246 or e-mail her at [email protected] .

The KES School Council meets the last Monday of every month at 11:30 a.m. except in November and December when the council meets on the last Friday prior to student holidays.  All meetings are open to the public.  KES also has a very active partnership with the Trident Refit Facility at the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base.


Kingsland Elementary School’s mission is to provide all students a challenging academic program in a nurturing environment that equips them with fundamental skills for lifelong success.


Kingsland Elementary School will prepare all students to achieve academic excellence and become life-long learners.


We Believe…..
A safe and secure school environment is essential to academic achievement.
A strong partnership of teachers, parents and community is necessary for the success of our students.
Teachers will utilize a collection of achievement data when planning academic instructions.
Literacy is the foundation of a child’s education and will be integrated in all curricular areas, as well as encouraged at home.
Academic instruction includes the effective use of technology to enhance student learning.
Instructional activities will embrace individual differences and learning styles.
Students should be provided with opportunities to explore, recognize, and develop individual talents.
Rigorous math and science instruction enables students to succeed in today’s competitive world.

Important Notices



While there is no mask requirement in place for our schools at this time, students and staff are encouraged to wear face coverings while on school campus and while riding on our school buses.  Masks are an additional step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with everyday preventative actions and social distancing in public settings.

To ensure that our students have minimal risk of exposure, the following is requested:

  • Please send your child to school each day with a clean mask. The school system will provide face coverings for students who are unable to provide one on their own, but we do have a limited supply.
  • Identify each child’s mask as uniquely theirs (mark with name) as many masks looks the same. Please keep in mind that we provide each child with the same identical mask, please label these masks with your child’s name to avoid any potential cross contamination.
  • Keep Multiple masks in the child’s backpack, one to wear and one as a spare. This is especially helpful with the morning rush and mask are forgotten at home.
  • Encouraged students to wash hands when applying and removing the mask.
  • Encourage students to keep masks in their possession as many masks look exactly alike.

We are grateful for the cooperation of our students, staff, and visitors as we work together to keep our schools and community safe.
