Dear Kennedy Parents,
We ask that you review the following procedures to be sure your child can be safe before, during, and after school:
Kennedy’s School Day is 8:30AM-3:05PM. Please have your child in the building by 8:15AM. If your child is going to be absent for any reason, please call the attendance line at 214-6681.
Drop-off and Pick-up Policy:
During scheduled school days, drop-off and pick-up of students is not allowed on 7th Street, as to avoid the incoming and outgoing bus traffic.
Please use the 8th street access to pick-up or drop-off your child(ren).
Kennedy’s supervision begins at 8:00AM. Students arriving before the school day begins will report to their assigned stations until their classroom teachers picks them up at 8:15AM. Students arriving after 8:20AM need to report to their classroom. Students arriving after 8:20AM are checked into the office as tardy. Please be sure your child(ren) arrive on time.
During School Hours:
If a child needs to be picked up during the school day, parents must do the following:
1. Sign in at the office
2. If visiting the school, visitor’s must receive a visitor’s badge.
3. The secretary must verify if person is listed on the student’s
verification form when picking up a student before leaving
End of the School Day:
Kennedy’s dismissal times are at 3:03 and 3:05PM.
1. Students who do not ride the bus are dismissed at 3:03.
2. Students who do ride the bus are dismissed at 3:05.
*This is to prevent congestion in the hallways at the end of the school day.
Parent Pick-up of 1st-5th graders: Due to the large number of students exiting the building, we are asking parents to wait in the lower lobby of the main entrance for your child(ren) and make your way out of the building as soon as possible to allow the next groups of students to make their way to the bus lines. If you need to go to the classroom to pick up your child for a specific reason, please sign in and receive a visitor’s badge before going to the classroom.
3:05PM-Bus dismissal (teachers will dismiss students to the bus lines)
"No Shots, No School" Policy
Minnesota Law requires written proof that students receive all vaccinations-or parents must file a legal exemption saying they object to the vaccinations - before students can attend class. All students, including transfer students can not attend class until their immunization status has been verified.
