Volunteers Needed for Understanding Our Differences

posted Dec 4, 2017, 7:14 AM by Hillary Stasonis

Understanding Our Differences (UOD) is a nationally recognized, educational program that teaches elementary school children to develop understanding and respect for fellow students and others with physical, sensory or developmental disabilities. Students in grade 3-5 at all elementary schools will participate in two programs this school year. Programs typically start with a 30 minute video or presentation about the disability, followed by 3-4 small group activities that run about an hour, and finish with a speaker and Q&A. We need volunteers to help with the small group activities. 

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED for this special program! 

Your child does not need to be in the class to volunteer, anyone can!
  • There is a 20 minute online training session for all volunteers. 
  • Volunteers must have a current CORI on file with the elementary schools. Here is a link to the CORI form:
  • More Dates Coming Soon. Programs are scheduled for the entire school year. We post volunteer opportunities a couple of months in advance and will add new dates throughout the year.

Coats for Kids

posted Nov 21, 2017, 7:30 AM by Hillary Stasonis

Sponsored by Anton’s Cleaners, Coats for Kids offers our school the opportunity to participate in a meaningful community relations program; the goal of the coat drive is that everyone who needs a coat will have one. If you have a coat you could donate to a child or family who might be less fortunate, there will be a donation box set up in the front foyer of the school for any "gently used" (think something you'd give to a friend) winter coats, vests, hats, mittens, and scarves. We are
collecting for kids, adults and even babies. Collection is thru Jan 7th

School pick up/drop off procedures

posted Jul 18, 2016, 6:08 AM by Michael Motherway

It is very important for the safety of our students that the following arrival and dismissal procedures are followed.

IMPORTANT:The Kittredge driveway is ONE WAY. Under no circumstances should a car be exiting from the entrance. This is a major safety concern and will be monitored closely.

Arrival Procedure:

  • The Drop Off Zone is the area marked with Orange Cones ONLY. These cones are placed in front of the school to allow safe passage for students from their car to their morning destination (the playground in good weather, inside school in bad weather).
  • Cars should pull all the way forward in the Drop Off Zone before children exit the car.
  • Students should exit cars in the Drop Off Zone ONLY.
  • There will be staff monitoring students exiting cars and buses.
  • Parents/Adults should stay in their cars.
  • Students arriving after 8:25am will enter through the front door and check in at the office.

Dismissal Procedure:

  • All students picked up by car MUST be met in the front driveway of the school. Please do not park off the road on Main Street to pick your child up from the “walker line.”
  • Cars will form TWO lines in front of the school building. The left line should turn left at the end of the driveway, and the right line should turn right.
  • Please stay in your car and wait for your child, this is for the safety of all.
  • Kittredge is an “Idle Free” zone, so please turn off your car while waiting for dismissal.
  • Walkers, accompanied by a staff member, exit from the front of the building, cross the driveway over to the sidewalk and continue down the sidewalk to the crossing guard at Main Street.

These procedures have been put in place to ensure the safety of the entire Kittredge community.

Thank you for your cooperation!
