    Kelleys Island School Ready For Students

green school

Kelleys Island School will be starting back this fall on Tuesday, September 1st with classes held every day in person.

All students and staff will be required each day to have temperature checks taken before entering the building.  A temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will result in not being allowed into the building.  Masks will be worn at all times by students and staff.  At the discretion of the teacher, and if students are properly distanced, masks may be removed when directed.  Of course, we will remain in compliance with all mandates.  All classrooms will operate at a distance of six feet from others.

Upon arrival, before lunch and after recess, as well as restroom breaks, regular hand washing and sanitizing will be scheduled.  Restroom breaks will be limited one person at a time.  Each student will have their own hand sanitizing supplies issued to them only.  Each student will be responsible for their own water bottle each day since all drinking fountains have been disconnected for public use.

All desktops, door handles, and high contact areas will be sanitized regularly during the school day.  Also at least 3 times a week the classrooms and hallways will be disinfected.

Our goal is to make Kelleys Island School the safest learning environment as possible.  Other than school staff and students, the school will remain closed for public use.  Than you for your understanding and cooperation .

Remember to social distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands.

Thank you and stay safe

Phil Thiede, Superintendent

            Parent and Teacher Resources                    

books 1

With the close of schools and children working from home, teaching has definitely changed for awhile.  Teachers are doing their teaching remotely and parents have become the teacher at home.  I wanted to share resources that might be helpful to all in meeting this challenge .  These resources are lesson plans, activities, discussions, virtual field trips and videos. There is something for all grade levels and curriculum areas.  I will add to this page often. I hope that these resources will be helpful.

Getting Ready for the Snow??

  The students use these cardboard boxes as “forts” to play a “snowball fight “ game...any time of year!  

They change the game a little each time they play.  They  use the cardboard for "forts' and then try to get each other with snowballs and take snowballs from someone else. The snowballs are made of a soft "pom pom" materialThe snowballs On this day they had the forts all lined up side by side and tried to get Mrs. Green with snowballs.
