Communication to Families


Hello Kennedy Families,

I hope that you enjoyed the weekend and had a fantastic Mother’s Day this past Sunday! We were excited to have had a smooth reopening and are committed to support our students in both distance learning and hybrid cohorts. As we approach the last few weeks of school, I want to inform you of the latest updates from Kennedy Elementary.  Please see the letters below regarding upcoming events such as our drive-thru International Night this Friday from 3:30 to 7 pm, iReady assessments, and more.

Best Regards,

Hello Kennedy Families,

We were overjoyed seeing many of our students return to school and participate in our Dry Run Day on Tuesday. Overall, it was very successful and we learned a lot from this experience. In preparation for our official first day of in-person instruction on Thursday, April 29, please see the links below for important updates regarding Qualtrics Daily Symptom Check, how families can help with arrival and departure, child care, and coffee w/the principal.

Hello Kennedy Families,

I am looking forward to spring and good weather; that is one of the many reasons that makes the Bay Area a special place. Another reason that makes it special is of course Kennedy Elementary! I am aware that all of the Newark community is experiencing very fluid times, and I commend all of our families for demonstrating great patience as we work together to do what is best for our students. Please see the links below for updates regarding science, reopening plan, incoming 7th graders, and more.
