Throughout the year, we have borrowed clothes to students who have fallen in the mud, spilled milk on themselves, or had a bathroom accident.  If you have any of Kennedy's clothes, please wash and return all borrowed clothes by the end of the year.  We need to be able to reuse when others need to borrow the clothes.  Thank you.
