Thanksgiving Break 

We are thankful to every parent and student here at Kittredge. You are the reason we have such a strong and resilient community committed to supporting our mission of Strong Academics in a Warm and Nurturing Environment. 

We wish every one of you a healthy and happy break and look forward to seeing everyone on Monday, November 29.

Planning a trip?

We hope that you will take this opportunity to enjoy the week of Thanksgiving with family. Please remember that unvaccinated air travel requires a 7 day quarantine and a negative covid test before returning to school.  Unvaccinated international travel also requires a 7 day quarantine and negative covid test before returning to school.  

Whether you travel or stay local, we hope you will be safe.  Please update us with your most recent vaccine information.  We are looking for student and parent vaccine cards.  A full vaccination is effective 2 weeks after the second dose is administered.

DECEMBER NEWS

Parent Teacher Conferences, December 9 and 10

We are holding Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday and Friday, December 9th and 10th. School will be dismissed at noon and conferences will be from 12:30 to 5 on both days. 

A google dismissal form will be emailed after Thanksgiving so you can let us know where to dismiss your child at noon on those days. You will be able to register your child in to Extended Day for the afternoon or you can drop off your child, for no charge, while you attend your conference.

In order to best accommodate sibling conferences and help with special circumstances, each teacher is sending out conference requests to parents this week. Sending back your preferences early will help teachers coordinate sibling appointments, so please don’t delay if you need a couple scheduled together.

In order to attend a conference in person, we need to have your vaccination card on file. Please upload it here: https://forms.gle/GerebG93jBQ4z2LB6 

Zoom conferences can also be arranged on the teacher’s sign up request. After you choose your preferences, please let them know that you prefer the conference to be virtual instead of in person.
