Commander Communicator

A Message From Principal Almon

Dear Commander Family,

I want to take a moment to celebrate our students. Not only are they resilient and empathetic, but they also look out for one another and advocate for each other even in times of great adversity and trauma. We care deeply about the safety of our students and want to work together with our students and families to keep all of our students  healthy and thriving; therefore, I encourage families and students to take time together to carefully read this one-pager that contains information regarding the dangers of Fentanyl. Additionally, we will be providing in person experiences to educate our students and families on Fentanyl use and overdose prevention. 

We have increased supervision in our student parking lot and are prohibiting students from hanging out in their cars while on school grounds. If your car is not registered through our Treasurer, you must bring your license, proof of insurance, and proof of registration to Marylou Diaz in the main office. Parking permits are free of charge.

I received permission from the family of the student involved in the incident that led to a medical transport on the morning of 12/1/22 to share that the student is in stable condition.  If any students need an extra layer of support or someone to talk to as they process the incident that took place on Thursday please connect with a trusted Kennedy staff member who will be able to connect you with a member of our mental health team. 

If you know of anyone who may be using or distributing fentanyl, please report to Safe 2 Tell or to a trusted Kennedy staff member. We are stronger together!

  • The Midterm Finals schedule

  • Love Sick Fall Play is canceled due to an unforeseen staff leave of absence

  • Information on Cocoa and Cram

  • Opportunity to join and lead our PTSA, Commander Connection

We are here for you, Commanders!

Have a Commander Kind of Day,

Tiffany Almon, Proud Principal

She, her, hers, and why they matter
