Keeping Up With The Kennedy

April 5, 2020- Issue 29


Good evening everyone,

I hope everyone is staying healthy and keeping busy. Hopefully you have developed routines that fit your family during this new "normal". It looks like the weather is going to be better this week enjoy some outside learning and some fresh air. Our teachers and staff remain committed to providing students with engaging learning opportunities and are always available if you have any questions.

Don't forget, we would love to see what you have been up to while at home. Send a picture and we will post it in the Weekly Update.

Notes from the Nurse

If you or your child uses an EpiPen 0.3mg, EpiPen Jr 0.15mg, or the authorized generic versions, please read the following alert from the FDA.

Hello JFK Families!

I hope this message finds everyone healthy and safe. I am having “virtual office hours” every day from 9-10am Monday- Friday. Please feel free to contact me at for health questions, consultations, or just to connect! During this hour, I will promptly respond to email correspondence and plan to answer all correspondence within 24 hours.

I miss the students very much. Please let them know I care about them and I am looking forward to seeing them when we get back to JFK! Tell them Nurse Stenmon is reminding them to wash their hands well, eat their rainbow of foods, drink lots of water and get some fresh air and exercise everyday, and above all else, stay well!

I am making every effort to extend continued support during this period and I look forward to helping in any way I can! Please know I am thinking of each and every one of our JFK families and wishing you all health and safety as we work together to get through these uncharted waters. Stay well and reach out to me as needed! Take care.
