TWO SCOOPS!

SCOOP ONE

Mask requirements change for mandatory to strongly recommended. This means each child and family may make the choice that is best for their family and loved ones when it comes to masking. Please remind your child that their mask use is a personal choice and should not be influenced by peers. Students should not be making comments or questioning others about their choice to mask or not to mask. If your child receives comments or teasing about their decision, I would ask that you notify my right away so we can ensure we are keeping Kellogg safe and respectful for all students. Additionally, we ask that you monitor your child carefully for COVID symptoms and keep them home when they are not well. Our ability to keep masks "recommended" is directly tied to our ability to keep staff and students healthy.


SCOOP TWO

Secondly, we will be modifying our lunch and advisory schedule to help ensure more comprehensive and effective supervision. Students will have the opportunity to eat in 4 locations beginning tomorrow (stage, cafeteria, quiet space, outdoors). The stage will continue to be spaced at 3 feet, as will the quiet space. Outdoor spacing is unlimited. The floor of the cafeteria will be reduced to 2 feet of spacing. Students will be able to select the location that works best for their circumstances. If your child is interested in eating in the quiet space, please have them reach out to a counselor or social worker for directions.

A Comet Community Celebration of Kellogg’s Teachers/Staff!

Spring is just around the corner and so is an opportunity to celebrate the hard-working, dedicated Kellogg teachers and staff! During the first week of May, join with others in our Comet Community of students, parents, and caregivers to create an “out of this world” week for our wonderful Comet teachers and staff!

There will be opportunities of all types (helping hands, artistic projects, and donation of goods) for all of us to join together to make this a very special celebration in early May. There will be gift card Bingo, popcorn and treat day, and even a special Friday raffle with prizes, among other special plans in the works. Our goal is to provide a week full of special experiences for all 130 Comet teachers and staff members.

A Sign Up Genius link will be sent out to you following Spring break via the Comet Connection, which will list opportunities for our Comet Community to participate in Appreciation Week, as well as the link being posted on Kellogg’s Facebook page. We will have all of April to collect your donations of appreciation items and to find helping hands to assist with tasks during this special week in May. Please join in this celebration and know that any gift you are able to contribute (whether it is a donation of requested items or helping hands) is appreciated and will make this a wonderful week for the Kellogg teachers and staff.

Be on the lookout for the Sign Up Genius link in early April (let’s “make it rain” with sign ups)!
