KG April #1 Update

A Note from the School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As indicated in our previous correspondence, Distance Learning will begin on Tuesday, April 14.  Teachers may be setting up practice sessions or touching base with your children this next week. We are excited to offer a Virtual Learning Travel Experience (below) for your child(ren).  In the spirit of inclusion, we will post your pictures on our social media in Kent Gardens Facebook (@KentGardensLions)  and Kent Gardens Twitter @KentGardens.  You should email to to have your pictures posted or you may remit to your teachers to forward.

A few questions have arisen with respect to the Learning Packets that are available in FCPS 24/7 Learning (Blackboard).  Many families have not received or they may have received duplicates – hopefully the issues will resolve after Spring Break you should be on schedule.  If you desire to opt out, you may use this opt out link to stop receiving the printed instructional packets in the mail. You will need your student’s ID number and your e-mail address to access the opt out system. Please note that it may take up to 1 week to process your request to opt out.

Please enjoy this time with your families and let your children know that their teachers miss them and look forward to 'seeing' them on April 14!


Holly McGuigan, Principal
