Keeping Up With The Kennedy

March 22, 2020- Issue 27


Good evening,

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Please stay up to date with information from the district by reading the notices sent via Blackboard. I understand they are lengthy and numerous, however, they are meant to keep families as informed as possible as we navigate through this situation.

Teachers should be reconnecting with students and families if they have not done so already. They will also be sharing resources to support students with meaningful online learning opportunities. Please make teachers your first contact with any questions or concerns, although you are always welcome to email me with anything you need.

Please see the links below:

We know the last week has been difficult finding a new "normal". As a result, we thought we would brighten your day and share some pictures of what we have been doing while at home. If you would like to share pictures of what your family has been doing, please forward with a caption and I will include them in future Updates. We would love to see what you have been up to.
