Communication With Parents
The Kellenberg Memorial website (www.kellenberg.org) is a very efficient and timely method of communicating with parents and students. It is recommended that parents consult the website on a regular basis. Weekly parent bulletins are sent via email with information of concern to parents and students. Report Cards are provided electronically on a secure section of the Kellenberg website. Please consult the school calendar for the dates and times when report cards are made available.
Kellenberg Memorial uses the School Messenger system when time sensitive communications to parents is necessary. Depending on the communication, email, voice and text messaging may be used; parents are asked to ensure all contact information is kept up-to-date with the school. Tests of the system will be conducted in October, January and April. You must opt in to receive text messages by texting yes to 68453. Additionally, your mobile number must be up to date with Kellenberg for you to receive our messages. The dates of the tests will be provided in the Parent Bulletin the week of the test. It is Kellenberg Memorial policy to mail communications to only one street address. The mailing will be made to the address the school has on file. If parents are separated or divorced, it is the obligation of the parent who lives at the address Kellenberg Memorial has on file to communicate information to the other parent, to the extent required by law.
Kellenberg Memorial often uses emails to communicate with parents. It is Kellenberg Memorial policy to email communications to only one email address. The email will be made to the email address Kellenberg Memorial has on file. It is suggested, but not required, that parents who are separated or divorced create an email account dedicated exclusively for the receipt of Kellenberg Memorial emails. It is further suggested that both parents share the username and password. While this is the suggested method, this is by no means required. It is the responsibility of the parents to work out how email communications will be shared (to the extent required by law). Any changes in address, telephone number and e-mail communication should be made through the office of the Assistant Principal for Academics
