Welcome to Keppel Pods

Good Evening Keppel Pod Families,

If you are receiving this email, your child has been assigned to a Technology Pod at Keppel Elementary School. The technology pods will begin on Wednesday, August 19th. Student drop off time is between 8:00 and 8:15. Distance Learning begins promptly at 8:20 and children need to be logged in to their virtual classroom. All students must be on time, and be accompanied by a parent/guardian at morning drop-off. This is necessary due to COVID-19 health and safety precautions that require staff to conduct a health screening of every child each morning. This screening consists of several questions and a temperature check.

The first three days of school, Wednesday, August 19 through Friday, August 21, are minimum days. Student hours are 8:00 – 10:15.

Beginning Monday, August 24, daily hours for the Technology Pods are as follows:
TK and Kindergarten 8:00 arrival – 12:00 dismissal
Grades 1 – 5/6 8:00 arrival – 2:00 dismissal

Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students free of charge. Students may bring a refillable water bottle labeled with their name. No backpacks or other items will be allowed.

As a reminder, all students must wear a face mask while on campus, and parents must be wearing masks when you drop off your children.

All children will enter and exit the school through the gate on Virginia Ave. Please be on time for dismissal, as it is very hot and there is very little shade on our playground at this time.

Please go over the Parent Handbook with your child so that they understand the rules of social distancing, no sharing of supplies or equipment, etc. We will review the rules at school but really want your children to understand the importance of following them. If you have any questions or need any help, please call the school office at 818.244.2113.

We look forward to seeing and meeting your children on Wednesday.

Ms. Tonoli
