Kelly Middle School Families,

We will be opening our doors to students for hybrid in-person learning on April 12. Some key details are listed below. We are looking forward to having students return. With safety as our top priority, we will have certain entranceways for Arrival and Departure. Your student will be reminded about which door to enter based on Period 1 and Period 4 classroom locations.

For students returning to the building, please refer to the printed students schedule and other documents in this mailing to verify your on-site attendance days. On the schedule, you will see a “Section ID” listed for each class. The section ID for each class will end with “CO” or “OC” or “O.”

CO means students will be in the building on Monday and Tuesday (Blue Days)

OC means students will be in the building on Thursday and Friday (Green Days)

O means students will NOT be in the building–On-line ONLY.

Lunch available OUTSIDE 12:20

Building Doors OPEN at 12:30

Classes BEGIN at 12:40

We ask that families please follow these guidelines to help all students stay healthy and ready to learn.

  • Please do not send an ill student to school.
  • Please contact your health care provider about any SERIOUS ILLNESS or if you are worried about your student’s health. If you need help in finding a healthcare provider, you may contact your local health department.
  • Please notify the school if your child is diagnosed with a CONTAGIOUS DISEASE.
  • Please notify the school if your student requires MEDICATIONS during school hours.
  • Follow school protocols for medication at school. If your student’s illness requires antibiotics, the student must have been on antibiotics for at least 24 hours before returning to school, and longer in some cases. Antibiotics are not effective for viral illnesses.
  • Please notify the school if your student has a CHRONIC HEALTH CONDITION. We will work with you to address the health condition so that the student can learn. To contact the school nurse, please email Robin Wellwood at wellwood@4j.lane.edu

In addition to these supplies, students are expected to come to school on-time and prepared with a charged iPad, a spiral notebook and something to write with. Classroom teachers will also have basic supplies in the classroom. Families may also want to send students with extra masks.
