Kittredge Konnection – May 11, 2021

THANK YOU KPA!

Thanks to the Student Council for sharing their personal examples of skills they started as beginners, have continued to learn and practice to get better, and where they eventually want want to take their skills.

THIS WEEK’S NEWS

In-Person Wednesdays Have Been Added to Seventh and Eighth Grades

Beginning tomorrow, our 7th and 8th graders will come for in-person classes from Wednesday to Friday. We were able to add this extra day, thanks to some of the changes made in the Orange and Yellow Tiers. 

San Francisco is doing great and we are being rewarded with the chance to relax some restrictions. However, we are still in a pandemic and many restrictions remain in place. Thank you all for your help in keeping us all safe and healthy.

NEXT YEAR’S NEWS

Our First Day of School will be Monday, August 30

Attached is the school calendar for next year. As things in San Francisco continue to open up we hope to be able to offer some of our traditional activities. We will keep you updated with any changes or additions that we can schedule.

We’d also like to make sure that everyone knows we will not be offering remote classes next year. We will once again expect that students who miss school due to illness or travel, will be absent that day and that teachers will work with them to catch up with assignments they missed.

However, if guidelines and protocols change and we need to shut down, we will be ready.
