STUDENT SAFETY FIRST! NO PARKING ON HENDERSHOT!
KHMS needs all of your help and cooperation in dropping off and picking students up. We cannot have students dropped off or picked up on Hendershot. It is a huge safety issue, any stopping, parking and U-turns are not permitted. Please communicate this to anyone who is helping with carpooling your students to school, ie grandparents, siblings, neighbor etc.

NEW PARENT PICK UP TIME: 2:20
With the stagger release times, we are trying to keep the bus/car traffic under control. We are asking parents to pick up students at 2:20. Reminder we can not have students dropped off/picked up on Hendershot or vehicles doing U-turns. KH has been in contact with the sheriff's department and Kent County Road Commission to help with traffic control.

VIRTUAL TUTORING AVAILABLE
Beginning October 5, Grand Valley State University is offering free 1:1 virtual tutoring/homework support to all K-12 students in Michigan throughout the school year. The program is open to the public on October 5, early slots are available for our students and available to book on our website right now. Ideally, students will sign up for one
session and then if recurring sessions are needed, they will work with their tutor to arrange it.

Tutors, comprised of GVSU students, faculty, staff, and alumni, will be available Monday through Friday from 11a to 9p and Saturday from 12p-5p. Every tutor has passed a background check and all sessions take place through Zoom which is monitored full time. Content areas include English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and
Spanish. Additional subjects may be added throughout the year.Parents are required to fill out a FERPA/Parent Consent Form (located on the website, http://www.gvsu.edu/k12connect) for each child prior to the first tutoring session.

SCREENING FOR FACE-TO-FACE STUDENTS
All students attending in person must be screened prior to school each day. Parents/Guardians will receive either a text message or email at 5:30a on each school day as a reminder to complete the very simple screener when your child awakes. The electronic screening tool can be completed until 8:30am. Unfortunately, we are unable to change the time of the screening period at this point; however, we are hopeful that we will be able to customize this in the near future. The tool is designed to quickly and accurately identify anybody who should not enter our buildings either because they are experiencing symptoms, or have been in contact with a known case of COVID-19. Please contact the school once the office opens if the screener instructs you to do so. It is imperative parents complete the screener for each of their students every school day prior to coming to school. The daily electronic screener does not need to be completed if your child is not coming to school that day. Thank you for your cooperation and support in completing this daily requirement.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
