The Knightly News
Special Edition Parent Newsletter - June 12, 2020
Hello Knight Families,
We have done it! In partnership with you, we have navigated a school year none of us could have predicted. I want to again take this opportunity to thank you for your support at home, as the job of educating our students is too big for one to take on alone, especially during a pandemic. You have certainly made my first year as the principal of Kellam High School a memorable one. I hope that your summer break will be full of fun, relaxation, and reflection of all we have accomplished and you are able to recharge for the work that lies ahead. To our seniors, we wish you much success in your new endeavors and for those returning Knights, we cannot wait to see you again in person. Know that with the recently released Governor’s plan for reopening schools, we have already begun working hard on the 2020-2021 school year.
Please see the announcements below regarding graduation, yearbooks, and refunds. Have a great summer break, and congratulations to the Class of 2020!

Request for Immunization Records
Graduating seniors who need a copy of their immunization records should request a copy using this link: Request for Immunization Record. If the request is made prior to Tuesday, June 16, 2020, a copy of the record will be placed in the student's diploma folder and will be available at graduation. If the student does not plan to attend graduation, arrangements to pick up the record can be made by contacting Ms. Ellis at Veronica.Ellis@VBschools.com.
