Orientation Day News

Kennedy Orientation Day is Monday, August 31st with class meetings at 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 and 12:00. You are required to attend a conference for each child because it is counted as a day of school, and attendance will be taken. This is a time to meet your child’s teacher, learn about grade level expectations, and bring in your child’s school supplies. The special education staff, specialists and school nurse will be available that day as well. Feel free to stop in to see them before or after your meeting with the classroom teacher. You will be receiving the Kennedy Handbook which reflects our policies and procedures and serves as a resource to parents throughout the year as questions arise.
