Thank you KPA!

Holiday Happening, Happened!

Thank you KPA and especially Kathleen Byrne and Catherine Kelley who demonstrated both persistence and flexibility to pull off an amazing Holiday Happening.  We were so pleased to be able to come together again. Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who filled our bellies with brownies, played games with us, and joined us in a few holiday songs.  It was a wonderful way to start our winter break.  Thank you for your help in making this event a success!

To see what you missed, or to relive the fun, here are links to some pictures:

Keeping Kittredge Safe – Weekly testing in January

With the spread of Omicron comes our additional effort to stay safe. In order to help mitigate transmission, we are following the SFDPH recommendations and asking for weekly tests throughout the month of January. Both PCR and rapid tests are accepted.

Please submit test results to this google form by midnight on every Tuesday of this month beginning January 11th.

We ask that you plan ahead in scheduling tests for January 11, 17, and 25. If you have difficulty booking a test, please contact the office to discuss available resources.  Thank you for participating in our effort to keep our kids healthy and in school.

Basketball Postponed

Due to Omicron, this week’s basketball games are postponed until the end of the season.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Thank you for your understanding.

Also Coming… Re-enrollment for Next Year

From February 1 until February 15 TADS online enrollment will be open for current families. If your child will be returning to Kittredge next year, you will need to complete this form online by February 15th. There will be a $1000.00 deposit needed at that time to hold a space for your child. 

We’re looking forward to another great year!
