Kellond Elementary

September 2020

Kellond Families,

It is hard to believe we have only been in session for four weeks. So much has changed in that time. As we work together to provide the best learning experience for our students, we know that remote learning is hard on our families and teachers. The district is evolving expectations as quickly as possible to support best practices for our children. Below, you will find an updated time chart that was provided last week Wednesday. Please know, that whatever is best for your family to manage during these times, we are here to find supports and provide flexible opportunities. Your child's well-being and your family needs are most important to us.


We are excited to congratulate the August 2020 Cougar of the Month recipients. Please see the list below. These students will also receive a certificate in the mail.


Parent-Teacher Conferences are coming up next week. If you have not already received a time slot for your conference, you may reach out to your teacher. Due to the conference schedule, classes will end at 12:25PM Wednesday, September 16th through Friday, September 18th. Also, please see the information for Grab-n-Go Meals below for this week.


Technology Support has been a challenge as we moved to a remote-learning district. Devices and T-Mobile hotspots were purchased and sent out as fast as we could obtain them from the venders. To assist your child online, please make sure you are reading communication from your teacher through the formats they have set up with you. During instruction, teachers will not be able to assist you immediately. If you need immediate assistance, you may reach out to our offices at 520-584-5100.


Finally, check out the opportunities to support our PTO through takeout food venders listed in the PTO section. Take a night, or more, off from cooking and part of the proceeds will benefit the work our PTO does for our Cougars.


Be safe and take care,


Ms. Meneguin


We are here to assist in any way we can this school year. Visit our Kellond Website http://tusd1.org/kellond/ for school information and links to district information.

Grab and Go Meals

Meals are now available for all children under 18 across the district for free regardless of enrollment status. These are the stops closest to our campus.


Due to early out days next week, 9/16-9/18 our Grab-n-Go Meal bus routes cannot run those days as buses will not be available during the meal route times. To adjust for this, we will be providing double meals (two days worth of meals) on the bus routes starting tomorrow, Friday, 9/11, Monday, 9/14 and Tuesday, 9/15.
