Happy Friday and Lunar New Year! Today we enter into the year of the Ox, which symbolizes prosperity, hard work, and a slow and steady pace; and, leave the year of the Rat symbolizing change. With that being said, we have some important updates to share, please read below carefully.
We are excited to be able to welcome all students who chose in person, as indicated in your Student Portal, to come for in person learning on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Therefore, if you are in the A or B group, you may now come to school to learn in person on all four in person days. This begins on 2/18. If you chose in person but plan to stay remote, please email me at Tiffany_almon@dpsk12.org so that I can update our records.
Our staff will be vaccinated on 2/22/21; therefore we will have a fully remote and asynchronous day on 2/22/21. Your teacher will provide you with more information regarding expectations for your independent learning on 2/22/21. To preempt staff experiencing side effects from the vaccine, we will have a fully remote day on 2/23/21 and we will follow the regular schedule. See the image below for a visual of this schedule:
We are also proud to announce that we are one of six schools in DPS that are partnering with COVIDCheck CO to provide FREE saliva test COVID testing to our JFK students twice a week. Read the information below to learn more about how to sign up to receive a free COVID test here at Kennedy.
