Kellogg Family Newsletter | March 22, 2021
We are trying to get lots of things tackled this week, so things look a bit different than other weeks. Here's the plan.
- Monday - regular day, no DL+ supports
- Tuesday - regular day for grades 7-8, orientation day for grade 6 and new-to-Kellogg 7th & 8th graders
- Wednesday - NO SCHOOL, grading day (teachers finalize Q3 report cards)
- Thursday - NO SCHOOL, planning day for our learning model change
- Friday - NO SCHOOL, planning day for our learning model change
Also, keep these things in mind.
- Next week is spring break. There is no school all week.
- The following week, our learning model change takes place. Classes start at 7:40am (online and in-person). Don't be late!

Student Mental Health Resource
Rochester Public Schools recognizes that we are all experiencing increased stress and worry during this time. In response, RPS is now partnering with community agencies to provide free virtual consultations to help address worries you might have about your child's mental wellness. These sessions will typically be with a community provider, not with an RPS staff member. Visit https://rochestermnschedule.as.me/ to schedule a 45 minute appointment with a trained mental health provider to discuss your concerns. These consultations can help you clarify what help your child might need and think about next steps. The mental health provider you meet with can connect you with resources for help. What is discussed during the consultation is confidential.
