PARENT - TEACHER CONFERENCES NEXT WEEK:
Due to extenuating circumstances, KHS will not be holding our evening parent/teacher conferences. We will have a "drop in hour" from 12-1 each day. If a parent comes to the school we will all call the teachers of that student to report to the main office area. Teachers will provide a brief snapshot of the student status and the meeting should be no more than a 5 minute standing meeting with the parent. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to contact KHS teachers to request recent updates on grades, behavior, and attendance of their students to individual teachers. We will continue to have scheduled conferences on Monday and Tuesday next week running 8-11:30/1-4:00 for selected students.
Message to Parents and Families:
Governor Little held a Press Conference today to announce he is putting the state back into a modified Stage II due to increasing numbers of Covid cases and the limitations placed upon hospital capacity. He sounded concerned. Part of his conditions are limitations of gatherings to 10 people or fewer, but it doesn't pertain to businesses, churches, or schools. He stated: Schools are controlled environments and they remain safe places to work and learn, when protocols are followed.
We will continue to monitor our situation on a daily basis. At this time we will continue with our current schedule. It is likely that regulations around sporting events may be altered. The Governor stressed the importance of mask wearing and keeping social distances.
This information will be of great concern to many. Our health and well-being is important and I believe we are safer in our schools than in other public places.
Please continue to wear masks, keep safe distances when possible, and wash your hands. There is now evidence that masks protect both the wearer and those around the wearer. I thank my staff for being role models for wearing masks. And, YOU are appreciated for supporting us.

KHS has a positive Covid case at this time. We are in the process of doing contact tracing and our quarantine protocols. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we go through the process to keep our students and staff safe. If you have not been contacted by school personnel then your child/school personnel has not been deemed a close contact.
NOTICE: 10/29/20 - PM
Dear Staff, Students and Families,
Due to the extreme conditions in Shoshone County surrounding the Coronavirus, the Kellogg School District is going to revise our in-school schedule for students. The change will occur next Wednesday November 4th. Until then continue to send your students as you have this week. Please check your school's web pages or media pages for specific details.
As of this evening the board has approved an addendum to our Back-to-School Plan which incorporates this new schedule. You will find that plan on my webpage at supt.kelloggschools.org
I will make a plea to everyone in our community to please be diligent about wearing masks, washing hands and sanitizing often. It is your way to vote for more kids in school more often. It is our only defense.
Thank you for your patience and diligence.
Use this link to view our Back To School Plan as well as other information from our Superintendent. You can also view information from Panhandle Health District on expedited COVID testing for students and staff.

NOTICE TO PARENTS/STUDENTS ABOUT ACADEMIC SUPPORT TIME:
In order to provide additional time and opportunity for our students to learn and be more successful, when a student has a D or F average or in the event a teacher requests a student to revise, complete or improve below proficient work, a teacher/staff member may assign Academic Support. A student will be required to complete the assignment and/ or alternative assignments provided by teachers and/or staff at proficient level. Academic support may be assigned before or after school or during lunch time. Failure to attend academic support and/or complete work to the teacher/staff member’s expectations may result in the student’s receiving in-school suspension, additional time with the teacher or lunch detention.
Sponsored by the Idaho State Board of Education, and paid for by a College Access Challenge Grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Next Steps Idaho is a statewide initiative designed to get Idaho’s students ready for life after high school, and in the process, help to meet the state’s goal of having 60% of Idahoans ages 25-34 possessing a degree or certificate by 2020. It is a good website for KHS students and parents to explore.
KHS Library Media Center
KHS Media Center has an online catalog. This is a great change for the way we can offer services to our patrons. Through our new website you can search for library materials at home on your home computer, laptop or smartphone. Our automated card catalog is located on all KHS Media Center computer stations, and is readily available by opening the Google Chrome feature. Because the website and catalog all work from the same source, looking for materials and status is as easy as can be. Included in this new program are many different sources for a reader to look through our Media Center collection. The URL for this new and advanced feature of the Media Center is as follows: khs.ksd.kari.opalsinfo.net/bin/home.
