Kelly Newsletter

December 2020

Greetings from Kelly Elementary School!

As our 1st trimester comes to a close, we are in a time of transition as our students and staff make the temporary switch to Remote Learning through December 22nd . Teachers and staff will continue to work from our building while connecting with students through Zoom, Google Classroom and Seesaw.

Collaboration efforts between students, teachers and families are important during this time. Please reach out for support when it is needed because we are here to help. Working together we have the best opportunity to make this a positive learning experience for our students. Grace and flexibility will be important as we go through these times.

We ask that you contact your child’s teacher for support with login information, assignments, Zoom, Google Classroom or Seesaw questions. If you are experiencing other technology issues use the Tech Support Line at 787-4318 or

Please take advantage of the meal opportunities that are provided from 11:30-12:30pm at school or through the bus delivery program in the Kelly neighborhoods. Specific details and stops are included in the newsletter.

We eagerly await our students’ return on January 4, 2021! Be safe and stay well!

LuAnn Schmidt

Associate Principal

Zoom Troubleshooting Tips

If your child is in the waiting room and not being admitted after a few minutes, please have your child restart their computer and try to join again.

If screens go black please have your child restart their computer and join the zoom again.

Influential Factors

One of the most influential factors during a child’s adolescence are maintaining a strong, open relationship with a parent/guardian. When we each create supportive and nurturing environments, children make better decisions. Though it may not always seem like it, children hear concerns, which is why it’s important that parents/guardians discuss the risks of using alcohol and other drugs.
