THREE SCOOPS!

SCOOP ONE

As you learned Friday, our COVID mitigation efforts are changing. Here are important things you should know about our recent round of changes:

  • We will no longer be contact tracing.
  • Anyone that was in quarantine on Friday will be permitted to return Monday, assuming they are symptom free.
  • Students who are positive or who have positive household members while unvaccinated will still be required to quarantine.
  • Zoom-enabled saliva tests are available from the health office.
  • If your child is sent home with symptoms, we would be happy to provide you with a rapid test. If negative, your child may return as soon as symptoms resolve.
The Safe and Open Schools Plan can be viewed here.


SCOOP TWO

Kellogg is part of a Safe Routes to School grant. We NEED your help to share perspective on routes students and families are taking to school each day. Would you please sped a few minutes providing your feedback in two ways?

  1. Show us your route or your child's route using an interactive map.
  2. Complete a brief survey to give us your perspective!

From Student Council

Thursday, February 17th is National Random Acts of Kindness Day, and to celebrate at Kellogg, student council members will be hosting Get a HUG; Give a HUG. Students will be able to get a Hershey’s chocolate HUG candy and write a note to another student or staff member, and student council members will deliver the note and give the student or staff member a Hershey’s chocolate HUG candy. On the notecard, students can write a compliment, words of encouragement, a knock-knock joke or any kind words they would like to share. We are asking students for 50 cents to Get a HUG; Give a HUG. The money will be donated to The Landing MN, a non-profit organization fighting homelessness in our area. Get a HUG; Give a HUG will happen during all three lunch periods in the lobby on Tuesday, February 15th and HUGS and notes will be delivered on Thursday, February 17th.
