Inclusivity:


At KLSD, we want each and every student and their family to feel comfortable, important and accepted for who they are.   
Please let us know how your child wishes to be identified by use of pronoun as well as any costuming preferences
(example would prefer a masculine-presenting style of costume versus a feminine-presenting style).
It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to let us know what is preferred. 
If you are unsure of which dance attire requirements (see below) apply to your child and their preferences, please inquire.
