Keeping Up With The Kennedy

April 19, 2020- Issue 31

Good Evening

I hope you are able to enjoy some of the warmer sunny weather this weekend. Today was beautiful. I was able to do some gardening, work on building my greenhouse, and finish the chicken coop for my new hens. It is always nice to get out and soak up the fresh air.

As a friendly reminder, Monday, April 20 is Patriots Day and is a day off for students and staff.

The Canton School Committee voted to continue with remote learning next week, Tuesday, April 21 through Friday, April 24 which would have been April Vacation. With this change, our last day of school this year will be June 23, 2020.

Please be sure to read the News from the Nurse that contains important information.
