School Picture Retakes
School Pictures along with student ID cards are in and will be sent home on Monday. Retakes are Monday, October 28. If you receive, pictures that you do not like send the picture packet back with your student to give to the photographer. If your student missed pictures, the first time now is the opportunity for your student to get their picture taken. You can purchase pictures online at Lifetouch.com or picture packets are available in the office.
LTD is currently working with local school districts to finalize the Student Transit Pass program to work in conjunction with the TouchPass electronic fare system.
Additional information about the Student Transit Pass tap card and mobile app will be available later this fall. Free student transit fares are made available through a grant to LTD from the State of Oregon’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF) approved through House Bill 2017.
We hold our annual Fall Fest Social for students who have behaved in a safe, responsible, and respectful manner during October. The event runs from 2:35-3:20 PM and features a variety of fun activities and a dance.
Fall Fest Reminders
- Costumes must not violate Kelly’s dress code and must not be culturally or ethnically insensitive.
- No masks or objects depicting weapons.
- Face paint is NOT allowed as it often needs to be reapplied during the school day (=distraction).
- Clown Costumes are prohibited.
- Due to the rhetoric and negativity created from politicals, no political costumes.
- No cameras or phone cameras allowed.
- Candy should not be brought to school and distributed on either the day of Halloween or the weeks following.
Students, who do not follow the above guidelines, will be asked to change and parents notified.
Through the help of generous community and parent, volunteers the past few years we have been able to open the library at lunchtime for students to check out books. This year we are still in need of a volunteer on Wednesday and Thursday from 12-1:35 PM to open the library. If you can help please call the Kelly office (541-790-4740) and let us know, it easy and fun. Alternatively, if you know of a community member that might be interested please pass the info on to them.
