Principal Kenny Upham reading to students in a classroom.An Open Letter to Parents, Guardians, and the Fort Riley Elementary Community;

As principals of Fort Riley Elementary, it is our pleasure to welcome all new and returning students to the FRE Family.  Our school was first established in 1952 and was located in the historic section of Fort Riley.  In 2015, a new school was opened for us as we continue to serve military students but in a different location.    Our school is part of the Fort Riley community that provides hopes and dreams for students.

The FRE staff understands that relationships are at the heart of everything we do.   Our staff puts people first and along with it comes the research based strategies and curriculum for engaging lessons.    We strive each day to challenge all students as they grow in their academic and emotional abilities.   We look forward to working with you and the members of the community to provide the high-quality education that all students deserve.

We are the Buffaloes, big and strong.

Kenny Upham, Principal
