TWO SCOOPS!

SCOOP ONE

We are beginning to talk about high school registration with 8th graders. In the coming days, we will send a Google Classroom code to parents and also some timelines for the registration process. Don't worry! You aren't behind, we are just giving students a preview so they are prepared for the process that lies ahead!

SCOOP TWO

All yearbooks should be out for delivery! If your child does not have theirs soon, please let the office know!

  2. TEACHER APPRECIATION: Please help show appreciation for our amazing teachers and help spread some holiday cheer. Donations of holiday goodies, assorted beverages, fruit, or other snacks can be brought to the school by this Friday, 12/17. The more, the merrier!

Boundary Change Updates

Generally speaking, here are some guidelines you should expect for the upcoming boundary changes.

  • 6th graders will be sent to their neighborhood schools for 7th grade.
  • 7th graders have the option to stay at Kellogg for their 8th grade year, but parents will need to provide transportation.
  • 8th graders will be sent to their neighborhood schools for 9th grade.

As with every programming change, there are exceptions.

  • If a 7th grader has a 6th grade sibling and the 7th grader decides to stay at Kellogg for 8th grade, the 6th grade will be allowed to stay for 7th grade. At the end of the 22-23 school year, all students will move to their neighborhood school.
  • Students that are currently on an exception to attendance will need to re-apply.
  • Students that are open-enrolled will have some flexibility, assuming district transportation is not used.
Please stay alert to communication about boundary changes!
