Morning drop off is NO EARLIER than 7:55 am and pick up is at 1:32 pm.

First Day of School

As a reminder, in level 3 hybrid, students are not be be dropped off before 7:55 am. They are to remain in or near your car until someone requests them to come to the door. If riding bike, they are to arrive no earlier than 7:55 am and socially distance. When the bell rings at 7:55, we will allow only a few students to enter at a time. Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade will enter the main door (door #6). 3rd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade will enter the gym door (door #7). Breakfast will be served in their classroom. The playground will be closed before and after school until 4:00 pm. As we move forward, we will adjust the procedures as needed.

Parents are to drop off in the SOUTH LOOP only. (The north loop is ONLY for bus and daycare drop off and pick up.) Parents who arrive first will be asked to park in the south parking lot to wait for the 7:55 bell and an adult to ask you to come in to the building. When the parking lot is full, we will allow parents to park in the drop off loop. Do NOT block 42nd Street. If need be, park near the tennis courts. Children whose parents are parked in the parking lot will be allowed to enter the building first, next will be the drop off loop, and finally, the tennis court.

We will have staff out there to assist with the process. Please demonstrate courtesy and patience toward our Kennedy staff and families.

Thank your for your patience and support. We look forward to a FANTASTIC 2020-21 school year!
