Update from your Assistant Princpals

LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!


We can't believe we are writing this. So many great things going on this week as we wrap up the year. Please make note of events happening and congrats to our soon to be FIRST Inaugural 8th grade class!


Just a heads up that as we enter this last week, school expectations are in place and students have been informed that losing the privilege of some of those events is possible with discipline reports especially at level 2 or 3. That decision will be made by assistant principals only.


Finally, we don't want to let this opportunity go to let you know that we had a busy week last week with reports of vaping and use at school or use in general. We appreciate students reporting as they are concerned for safety of friends and and wanting to create a more positive environment. At the same time, we also see this as a chance to support families who have questions about this whether this is your first experience with learning about vaping or you are looking for higher level of support. Always feel free to reach out to use or your counselor for more information.

We plan to have an info session for families this fall as part of a series of info nights.


SAVE THE DATE: August 27th will be our first Community Cares Day - Since we have landscapers for one more year, we hope to beautify the building on the inside and help the custodial team with the smaller fine touches that are challenging to get to from day to day.

Library Update

If your student has any library books out, remind them to return them on or before the last day of school. The KMS office will be open thru June 17 and available to receive library books. Thank you Kellogg families!

KELLOGG STUDENT CHROMEBOOK RETURN - Update

During this school year, your student has had access to a personally assigned Chromebook for use during the school day and at home. These devices are scheduled to be inventoried by the district and need to be returned to the school along with the charger, and case if one was issued.


For students in grade 6-7, the devices will be cleaned, updated, repaired and stored by IT ready for reissuing to students during September 2022.

All devices belonging to 8th graders Kellogg will be reissued to our new students next year. You will receive a new device from your next campus.


Inventory days for specific grades are:

8th is Monday June 6th

7th is Tuesday June 7th

6th is Wednesday June 8th


If you have recently left Kellogg or know that you are not returning next school year, please make arrangements to return your device to the office at your earliest convenience.

If your students' chromebook was lost or stolen you will need to contact khamilton@pps.net.


Note that lost or stolen chromebooks may incur a replacement fee.

A student Chromebook that is not returned will be locked down (not usable) and documented as missing or stolen in the student file.


Checking Out a Chromebook Over the Summer


If your student is interested in checking a device out over the summer, they will first need to return their device on the above dates. Then they will receive a Summer Check Out Permission Slip to be filled out with their guardian. Finally, the guardian and student can come to Kellogg on June 13th or 14th with the signed permission slip to check out a summer computer.

End of Year Activities:

Our grade level teams have been busy planning end of year activities. Here is a snapshot of what to expect.
