Principal’s Message 12/7/2020

I hope this was a great week for all of you! Friday, Dec. 4th marks the conclusion of the 16th day of the second marking period, and our students continue to work hard in the remote learning setting. A reminder, even though it is only December 4th, the second marking period ends of January 29th. In the blink of an eye, this date will be here, so it is important that your child engages in his or her classes.

Your support of your child in the remote learning setting is greatly appreciated, and I encourage all of your to continue to talk with your student about their academic performance during the second marking period.

Here are a few updates as we finish up the first week of December:

  1. Our KCSD Technology coaches have established office hours to support our students with their technology needs. Information regarding this offering is available here:
  2. Please be reminded that student attendance to class is taken every day in Skyward. When students are present in Microsoft Teams, they are marked as present for attendance in our system. Daily attendance to class is mandatory for students.
  3. Winter break for students is December 23rd through January 3rd. There will be no school for students on these dates. Remote Learning will resume for students on Monday, January 4th.
  4. Our next PTSO Meeting will take place on Thursday, January 7th at 6:00 and 7:00 PM. More information to come.
  5. Hybrid Learning at Kennett High School will begin on Monday, January 11th.
  6. There will be no school for students on Monday, January 18th.
  7. Kennett High School and the schools in the Ches-Mont League are currently developing a solution that will allow winter sports to occur safely. All voluntary workouts for all high school teams are suspended. Currently, the health and safety plans that will include protocols for each sport are being provided to the coaches to be followed by the teams once we are able to resume activities. More information will follow as decisions are made.
  8. Several teachers have communicated to students and families that there are materials available for pickup in our high school lobby. If you have not yet done so, please stop by to collect any supplies that you may have not yet retrieved for classes. If you are unsure as to whether or not to pick up materials, please reach out to your teachers and confirm with them.
  9. If you have not done so yet, please follow us on Instagram and Twitter @KCSDKennettHS.
