SCOOP TWO

Teachers shared this PPT presentation Moving to DL with students on Thursday. Please review the information prior to Tuesday.


SCOOP THREE

Teachers shared this PPT presentation Ready for DL? with students on Friday. Please review the information prior to Tuesday.


SCOOP FOUR

During Distance Learning last year, we hosted a single Distance Learning Target class. We plan to do that again for the next two weeks. Target is essentially used as a study hall, so if kids know what they need to work on, they can just dig in. If they need help, we will have a live classroom they can hop in to for support. The Google Meet code is kelloggtarget (no spaces). We will not take attendance for Target.


SCOOP FIVE

Because Advisory and lunch split a 45 minute period, we were concerned about students not having time to make lunch, eat lunch and have a bit of a break before hopping back online. In fact, lots of parents reached out with the same concern! :) As a result, we will not host Advisory during DL, so students can have a nice break away from devices before the second half of their day starts.


SCOOP SIX

Our Cool Comet Store for the end of Q2 has been postponed. We will remind kids on Jan 31 and then host the store on Feb 1. tell them to gather up their Cool Comets and hang onto them!


SCOOP SEVEN

Most of our after school programs have moved online for the next two weeks! If your child has been participating in any of these classes, please have them watch for a Google Classroom invite to join their friends! Q3 programming will not start until we return 1/31.

Distance Learning for Elementary & Secondary

This is the district document that was sent to families earlier this week. It provides a general overview of the DL plan for elementary and secondary students.

A Message from Kellogg Counselors and Social Workers

We understand that the move to Distance Learning can create a lot of extra stress for your families and students. We want to help you with those concerns while we are learning online. We have a fantastic team that are here that can help with needs ranging from social emotional, academic, peer conflicts, wellbeing and more. If you believe your student could use a check-in at any time, I am adding a link for a form so we can touch base with them. This form will also be available in your students google classrooms!
