KCS News Details
Kennebunkport Consolidated School ~ Tel-u-Gram for Friday, February 17th, 2023
Dear KCS Families,
At Friday Morning Meeting today, we have a student who will be helping us to honor and celebrate Black History Month. In addition, we have students from every team who will be sharing some of their work with us. We hope that you can join us!
While we talk about operating in a post-pandemic world, there are still many illnesses going around this winter. We encourage everyone to continue to do what you need to do to stay healthy. Keep in mind that schools are not immune to these illnesses and germs travel in schools, as much as we take precautions like frequent hand washing and sanitizing. Sometimes these illnesses present staffing challenges and we need to shift staff into different roles to cover when others are out sick. We do the best that we can to cover everyone’s responsibilities, but sometimes we are unable to do so. For example, sometimes we need one of our MTSS intervention ed techs to cover for a classroom teacher, which means that intervention groups might not be happening that day for the ed tech’s schedule. We recognize the impact on student learning when this happens and appreciate your understanding!
Happy Winter Break,
Karen Bubar, Principal

In a moment of crisis, you do not have to be alone. Sometimes you need a conversation--not an internet search.
Dial 2-1-1 for the Maine Hotline. This service can help with issues like acute crisis, financial assistance, mental health, addiction treatment, health care, or heating and utilities assistance. Additionally, the national Suicide Hotline is 9-8-8.
