2023 – 2024


Dear Incoming KPMS 7th Grade Families, 


Welcome to King Philip Middle School! We look forward to getting to know your children and learning about their interests and learning styles. We hope this letter will be able to answer some common questions about the school counseling department and how we are able to help your children make the most of their middle school years. 

Students at KPMS stay with the same school guidance counselor for two years through grades 7-8. We work together with students and their families on a number of levels and spend time getting to know our students. Counselors work with all teams of teachers and meet regularly to discuss team activities, assignments and important student information. In addition, your child’s guidance counselor is a liaison between teachers and home. We work in partnership to support all of our students and families.


Here are some of the regular services provided by the school guidance counselor:

– Supports all students in their assigned grade

– Provides individual and group counseling, as well as mediation between students

– Assists with social, emotional, academic and scheduling needs

– Meets regularly with teams of teachers to work in supporting students

– Team participant for IEP and 504 meetings

– Facilitates the referral process for the Student Success Team (a team process to help support students in need)

– Assists with transitions from elementary school to KPMS and from KPMS to high school

– Makes referrals to and consults with community resources (e.g., tutors, outside community agencies, therapists, etc).


We look forward to getting to know your child and to two years of positive partnerships with you. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

The King Philip Regional School District, in compliance with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, requires the following documents before a student enters 7th grade.

  • Updated immunizations which include:
    • Varivax, 2nd dose;

    • Tdap (Note: this is not the same as DTaP); and

    • MenACWY (1 dose).

  • Students must also provide a copy of the most recent physical examination signed by their doctor.

Physical examination and immunization requirements are due by the first day of school. Forms can be faxed to 508-298-0203 or emailed to msnurse@kingphilip.org.


If there are medical reasons why your child has not been immunized, a certificate must be obtained from your physician and forwarded to the school nurse; this letter should be provided each year. For religious exemption, a letter must be provided annually, that states that the immunization(s) are against one’s sincere religious beliefs.

If you have questions, please email msnurse@kingphilip.org or call the nurse’s office at 508-541-3457.
