Changes for the New Year!

As I am sure you are aware, starting next week we will begin a new hybrid model of learning in Eastmont. Your child will be attending school a full day, alternating days. If you are not sure which days your child will attend, please reach out to their teacher with questions. If you have an older child and you would like schedules to align, please work with the school your oldest child attends to make those changes.


Our pick-up and drop-off times will also change. Drop-off will be from 9:30-9:50. (No early drop-off will be allowed.) Pick-up is at 3:20.


The days your child is not on campus, there is remote learning that should be accessed. This is similar to what remote learning looks like currently with independent practice, specialists, technology and interventions.


We continue to value our partnership with you. It is with this tight connection and communication that Kenroy students thrive. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or suggestions. It is through this dialogue we get better.

For the kids,

Principal- Kristy Daley- daleyk@eastmont206.org

Assistant Principal- Erin Coyle- colyee@eastmont206.org

Kenroy Drop-Off and Pick-Up Reminders

Beginning January 19

Drop-Off- 9:30-9:50 AM (no early arrival)

Pick-Up- 3:20 PM


Getting students on and off campus safely and quickly is a priority for us. Due to this, please be aware we will continue Kenroy's "Circle the Block" drop-off and pick-up.
  • Kindergarten and First grade students- Front of school
  • Second and Third Grade Students- Kansas St.
  • Fourth Grade Students- Fence-line gate on Jonathan St.

We encourage students to walk to and from campus if you believe it is safe for them to do so. Our cross-walks continue to be staffed.

Attestations

Thank you for completing the bright, pink attestation forms each day. It continues to be Eastmont's policy to have those completed by all students. You will notice some changes to the form in the coming days with the additional questions of having a positive COVID test and needing to quarantine.

Lunch Information

New to our schedule is the addition of mid-day lunch. Here is what you need to know about meals at Kenroy:


  • Breakfast must be eaten at home.
  • Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge to all students who indicate; however, students may bring their own lunch from home.
  • While students eat lunch in classrooms, strict safety protocols, including ventilating, distancing and washing is required.
  • Students will be able to take home meals for the next day(s) at the end of the school day.

Don't Forget about Remote Instruction on January 19!

Just like currently, on the days your child is not on campus, he/she will access Kenroy's remote learning platform. This will include the following each day:
  • Specialists- P.E., Health, Music and Art (Fridays)
  • Independent Practice- This is work from the general education teacher for your child to complete.
  • Technology- On-line sites, including Lexia, Zearn, Khan Academy, etc.
  • Intervention- Some students will have intervention classes, including English Language Learning and Special Education, 1-2 times a day. If your child qualifies for this, you will be contacted.
  • Highly Capable- If your child is in this program, work is to be completed at this time.

Let's Stay Healthy with Mrs. Lutz!

Added to the remote part of your child's day is health instruction. Join Mrs. Lutz as she teaches students about healthy eating and living, including the following upcoming lessons:
  • The Top 10 Hazards in Your Home & How to Stay Safe
  • Bicycle, Pedestrian & Transportation Safety
  • Hungry? Learn how to make yummy and cute Banana Snowmen, Olive and Cream Cheese Penguins & Grinch Kabobs. Let's eat a healthy snack!

January's Character Trait is Responsibility

Staff is working hard to teach students what responsibility means and what it looks like in classrooms and around campus at Kenroy. At the end of the month our staff will recognize students from each class who exemplify this trait. We will spend some time celebrating his/her success with a shout out in class, a certificate and a new pencil.
