Mark Keppel 2020 - 2021

Good Evening Keppel Families!

This is Ms. Tonoli, calling from Mark Keppel. I wanted to share with you a few exciting things we have planned in preparation for the new school year. Mrs. Worley and I and the Keppel staff are working hard with preparations.

On Thursday, August 13th at 10:30am we will hold a Virtual Parent Orientation/Welcome Back to School Meeting – This is an event for all families. Information about the school year, structure, schedules, and procedures will be discussed.  Stay tuned for login information.  

Friday, August 14th from 10:00am – 1:00pm we will have Chromebook Distribution for those parents who have filled out the District Survey requesting a device. Please plan to come to Keppel, entering through the Virginia gate to pick up a Chromebook or Hotspot at our lunch benches. If you have not YET completed the District survey, please call the District Office at 818.241.3111. You will be able to check out a device from there. Our foundation, MKS, will be on campus selling new spirit wear at that time so please plan accordingly. All visitors must be wearing a mask and maintain social distancing at all times. Please also bring a pen with you so that you can fill out check out forms.

The following week, Monday, August 17th, at 4:00 pm the Parent Portal will be open for parents to login to see the class placement of their child.  If you need assistance logging into the Parent Portal, please email Maria Sanchez, our school secretary, at msanchez@gusd.net.  Classes have already been created and no requests or changes will be made. 

Wednesday, August 19th is the  First Day of School! The first 3 days of school will all be minimum days.  School hours will be 8:00 - 10:15 am.
