SOCIAL MEDIA - Incidents

Kellogg Families,

We have seen an increase in incidents that stem from social media interactions whether they happen after school hours or during. This is part of our new reality and if any disagreements or conflict spills into the school day and is disruptive, we do work with kids and families.

Recently we have had incidents where students share their login information for whatever reason. As you can imagine, this is not the best thing to do.

Please make sure to review expectations around social media accounts and online activity. In a world of screenshots, group chats and more, this form of communication has become more complicated.


Spring SUN classes will run April 11-May 19th.

SUN class selection sheets will be available to students through their homerooms and in the main office beginning on Friday March 10th.

SUN class selection sheets are due March 20th.

**Late class selection sheets will result in an automatic WaitList position

Kellogg SUN will be partnering with StreetSoccerUSA in the Spring term to form a Middle School Soccer League with Reynolds Middle School. Students enrolled in Soccer during Spring SUN will be invited to participate in 2 weekend tournaments. Students will enroll in Soccer through the Spring SUN class selection sheet to participate in this opportunity.
