This Week’s News

Covid Protocol – Where We Are Now

A quick reminder – this year we are no longer requesting that parents fill out a health screening on TeacherEase for students. Please keep your child at home if they are unwell, and contact our office if you have any questions.

We are also no longer sending community-wide notifications when a community member test positive. We will continue to notify you if your child has been exposed. We appreciate your understanding as we make this communication transition.

Lastly, beginning Monday, September 12, 2022, Kittredge will be returning to a mask-optional policy. Because everyone has experienced the pandemic differently, and has been impacted by it in different ways, everyone feels differently about mask wearing.

Please encourage your children to respect and accept the choices of their classmates and teachers.

We encourage everyone to get vaccinated and upload your status for our records. You can update your child’s vaccine status here
