    As the weeks go on, our teachers are dedicated to making virtual learning fun and exciting in an effort to keep their students engaged. You are encouraged to get online with your children to see the creative and inventive ways that our teachers have kept learning on this new platform interesting.

    Governor Tony Evers issued the “Safer at Home” order on Wednesday, March 25. The order, which extends through April 24, requires people to stay at home except for essential activities. To comply with this directive, the district will be extending its physical closure through April 24 and will continue with virtual learning throughout this time period. (However, please note that there will not be virtual learning activities on Friday, April 10 and Monday, April 13 as these were previously scheduled as “no school” days.) 

    To continue to serve our families, the district will provide lunches during these additional weeks of closure. If your family has regularly been receiving the lunches, this will automatically continue through April 24. (However, if you would like to be removed from the list, please contact the District Office.) If you have not yet signed up for lunches and would like to do so, please use this link. The district has already provided over 5,000 lunches to our students. Special thanks to our food service staff for their efforts in meeting this need!

    The Kennedy Office is currently closed, if you need assistance during this time, please contact Stacy Fischer at sfischer@grafton.k12.wi.us or 262-376-5655

  • Wanted: Virtual Learning Pictures
    Camera Clipart License Not For Commercial Use In Other - Camera ...
    We are working with VIP to design the Kennedy yearbook, and our process is changing a bit because this year the book will look much different than years past. We won't have many (or any) pictures of our School Groups, so we are working with VIP to create a Virtual Learning section of the yearbook. This will be a section where we can showcase pictures of our amazing staff and families coming together to rock virtual learning and make this scary, crazy time as positive as possible.

    If you are comfortable with your pictures possibly being used in the yearbook, please send Stacy Fischer, sfischer@grafton.k12.wi.us, pictures of what Virtual Learning looks like for you. Your workspace, screenshots of your videos, etc., and she will send them to VIP for processing and design.

    Please have your pictures emailed to Stacy no later than April 10th!

  • Yearbook Orders
    CP Yearbook Orders | Roseville Area Schools
    Kennedy Yearbook orders are being processed differently this year due to our school closure and the uncertainty of when we will return. The yearbook cost will include a mail service fee, and your yearbook(s) will be mailed to your home address sometime in May. Yearbooks will not be distributed through Kennedy, even if we return prior to the school year end. 

    To make this process the most efficient, we strongly encourage families to order their yearbook online with a credit card by visiting the Kennedy-VIP website at https://www.vipis.com/group/3d79a4f5/kennedy-elementary-school.

    If you are not able to order online, you can print the VIP Yearbook Order Form and mail your order with a check (no cash) to Visual Image Photography at W63N582 Hanover Avenue, Cedarburg, WI 53012. The order deadline is Friday, April 17th.

    For technology support, please email helpdesk@grafton.k12.wi.us but also include a phone number for us to call you. 

    Elementary school Seesaw access codes for Kindergarten - Grade 2.  The access codes have been uploaded for each student into Skyward.  
    Directions to find your unique code
    .  Seesaw grades 3 – 5 use their Google login.  Grafton Home FAQ document Seesaw video links
     
    The Grafton teachers have been creating videos using their document and web cams which has required them to upload their videos to Youtube or Google Drive.  The videos are URL links but we have found that some versions of iPad and Android tablets do not load the videos.
     
    If your child gets the message “This video is restricted. Try signing in with a G Suite account” when clicking on YouTube links, please see this link.
     
    We have been pushing new policies to allow YouTube links and have found that many of the Chromebooks are not getting the updated policy.
     
    On the school district home page, there is an FAQ document that we are putting common home technology questions.  Home Technology FAQ.   
     
    A huge thanks to our Tech Team for all their hard work and countless hours to keep everything running smoothly so our children can continue to learn.
