Dear Kent Families,
We hope you are enjoying your spring break and finding time to be with your family. We are currently experiencing a unique challenge as we come together to minimize the potential effect of the COVID-19 pandemic in our country. I am so proud of how our faculty, staff, and families are coming together in this environment that is changing hourly.
Per direction from our Governor, and in an effort to curb the spread of COVID19 across the state, there will be NO SCHOOL for Kent Academy students March 23 through March 26. Staff will spend March 23rd preparing distant learning lessons and assignments for students. Materials and assignments will be available to pick up Monday, March 23rd during an extended normally scheduled afternoon pick-up time from 2:00-4:00. In respect of distancing ourselves, and creating the choice of an environment safe form harm, I will be on campus to distribute materials as needed and request that ONE parent or family member come into Kent to pick up materials. We continue to sanitize the campus and follow safety precautions for any staff or parent that will be on site.
Students are expected to complete assignments according to their teacher’s instructions. Attendance and grades will be dependent upon completion of such assignments. It is encouraged that you create a designated work space for your student to focus and complete their work.Teachers will be available for questions and assistance during the normal 9:00-3:00 instructional hours. Please maintain normal guidelines for communicating with teachers outside of these school hours. We are fortunate to be a small school with a great communication system already in place.
Please know that our leadership team continues to cover our families and community in prayer for health and well being during this time.
