Press Release - January 21, 2021 - Kellogg Jt. School District 391

Kellogg School District to Return to a 5-Day Schedule

Last evening the Kellogg School District Board of Trustees approved a plan for K - 12 students to return to a 5-day school week. Based upon current data and community conditions, the KSD Leadership Team proposed the plan. This plan recognizes the importance of continued, correct mask usage to keep staff and students from being exposed. The plan incorporates information provided by Governor Little and the Idaho State Board of Education about transmission in schools and amongst students and staff.

The plan utilizes daily absenteeism data from each school and community data provided by the Panhandle Health District and local medical professionals. Both local and regional information will be used in making decisions regarding a possible school closure in the future. If this occurs, we will inform you quickly so you can make adjustments to schedules.

In the Kellogg School District we have been preventing the spread of the virus by a commitment to wearing masks, social distancing when possible, enhanced cleaning, and contact tracing. We will continue to be diligent with these precautions.

Thank you to our staff, students, parents and community members for supporting us and fighting to keep kids in school by taking the same precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.

Message from Superintendent Larsen


Dear Families and Staff of the Kellogg School District:


We are ready to go back to school tomorrow using the schedule we were on prior to the storm. All of our power is back on and repairs are being made. I hope that your power is back on and your family is comfortable. If you don't have power and it causes your children to be late for school, please let us know. We will accommodate them and their tardies.


Thank you for your patience during this uncommon time.

Nancy J. Larsen, Superintendent

KSD

Hello families and staff:

This is superintendent Larsen from the Kellogg School District. It's been a challenging day for all of us. Hopefully you have power restored and are safe and warm. At this point we know that the power may be temporary in some places while others are still without service. Therefore, we will not have school tomorrow which is Friday the 15th.

Our buildings have sustained some damage and we’re working on repairs. We have staff dealing with unusual circumstances, as well. We are also supporting our community in cooperation with Shoshone County and Avista by offering our Kellogg Middle School Building as a warming shelter tonight. If you know of someone who needs to get warm send them our way. Please bring your own blankets and belongings.

We have many people who have stepped up to help out and we are so thankful for each of them.

Sincerely,

Nancy Larsen

Press Release - December 10, 2020 - Kellogg Jt. School District 391

KHS will Move to a Remote-only Learning Schedule

Today the administrative leadership team met once again to discuss current situations in our schools surrounding covid-19 cases. Cases in our schools, Shoshone County, the Panhandle, and the state of Idaho are increasing at an alarming rate. Governor Little’s message today was one of compliance “to do the right thing to get the incident rate down.” We know that he and many people share our concerns about the well-being and education of our students and staff. Therefore, we must measure the two very carefully.

In response, we are announcing a change in our schedule at Kellogg High School only. Beginning on Monday, December 14, Kellogg High School Students will go to a remote only learning schedule due to 40% and rising absenteeism of students there. Attendance will be taken as usual during remote learning. Please watch for additional information with specifics on the remote learning schedules for next week.

We are monitoring the other schools on an hour to hour basis. Presently, Kellogg Middle, Pinehurst Elementary, and Canyon Elementary Schools will remain on the current routines. If this changes, we will inform you quickly so you can make adjustments to schedules.

In the Kellogg School District we have been preventing the spread of the virus by a commitment to wearing masks, social distancing when possible, enhanced cleaning, and contact tracing. We will continue to be diligent with these precautions and will constantly re-evaluate our school plans.

Thank you to our staff, students, parents and community members for supporting us and fighting to keep kids in school by taking the same precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.

Dr. Nancy J. Larsen, Superintendent

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.

Sincerely,

Nancy Larsen, KSD Superintendent


11-5-20:

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.

Sincerely,

Nancy Larsen

KSD Superintendent

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.
