Dr. Reid will be answering questions submitted by seniors on Wednesday, April at 2:00 p.m.
Happy Friday KMS Families:
I hope this message finds you well. Hopefully, by now you have heard the great news, that NSD will “unpause” virtual learning with the second version of Distance learning, please see Dr. Reid’s email from March 26th for more details.
The KMS staff and I are excited to get back to learning. We have missed working with and supporting your kids as they learn and grow. This version of Distance Learning, will look different from previous Distance Learning and is by no means perfect. We are still asking for everyone to practice patience and not expect perfection. Students, starting Monday, March 30th will follow our new Distance Learning Schedule.
Starting Monday, students should expect an email from their teacher at the start of the day they are scheduled for instruction as to what to do (login to Google classroom, the Zoom information for the day, etc.). During the week of March 20 - April 3, all teachers will be adjusting to this new schedule. Our emphasis will be on making sure students understand the schedule, know how to access lessons, and be clear about the expectations for their virtual participation. Students should also hear about an assignment, tasks or projects they can work on until the next time each class period meets, which will be the week following Spring Break (April 6 - April 10). I have asked teachers to refrain from sending very many emails throughout the course of the week as to not overwhelm your students with too many communications. Teachers will still be responding to students, so please continue to have your student(s) email questions to teachers as they come up.
I know this is a very difficult time for many within our community and this email does not answer all the questions you have regarding Distance Learning. More information will come as answers to our questions become available.
Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students can attend free, live Advanced Placement (AP) review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country.
If you are renewing your membership (by completing community service and GPA requirements) or applying for Honor Society this year, please know that any previously published due dates have been extended. Not sure yet when they are extended to, but for now don't worry about a deadline for turning in materials.
While schools are closed during this regional health challenge, we are offering free meals for all children 18 and younger.
To support families during this challenging time amidst the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have compiled a list of resources to continue the process of home learning.
All upcoming events and activities have been cancelled until further notice.
We are prepared to transition from the classroom to the cloud. Our instructional staff have and will continue to develop their skills for providing instruction to our students within an online environment.
The safety of our students and staff is our priority. We will provide updates and resources in an effort to help families reduce the risk in their home and community.
