Dear Kelly Families,

Starting on Tuesday the 8th, we are asking families to say goodbye to your children when they enter the building at 8:35. We understand this is a big change from previous school years at Kelly. Your child’s learning day starts at 8:40am. Our staff is focused on making the most of every moment at school to unlock your child’s potential. Your child will get their breakfast and be greeted at their classroom door by their teachers and educational assistants. Your support and partnership in this new routine is critical to our intentional teaching and our ability to keep your child safe.

If you have an urgent message you need your child’s teacher to receive, the school office will be open at 8:30. If you need to connect with your child’s teacher in the morning you will need to check in and get a badge and can visit the classroom from 8:35-8:40. The instructional day still begins at 8:40 so we will ask that parents leave classrooms at that time so all students can begin their learning day on time.


At 8:40am, a bell will signal the start of our learning day.

Thank you so much for your support as we work to maximize the safety and learning for all students at Kelly!
