School Communications Good morning Kelso C-7 Family, I appreciate all of your understanding as we worked to keep our school family safe this morning by means of a delay. We are in the middle of winter and with that comes tough calls like today and communicating these decisions to you as efficiently as possible. We understand the impact snow days and delays have on our families. Trying to make arrangements while balancing your own employment. Cancellations and delays are not one that we take lightly. We are protecting precious cargo. Here are a few ways that Kelso C-7 will communicate these decisions to our families: KFVS - 12 Kelso C-7 Facebook page Kelso C-7 App - push notifications Classroom communication platforms Kelso C-7 utilizes an app for your convenience of all things C7. If you have not downloaded the app, its not too late! If you did not receive any notifications today from the District, you may need to change the app settings. Below is a YouTube link to help you download the app and turn on your notifications. https://youtu.be/8P0cJ3icV3s?si=BV-LOWblemKTQUhX If your family did not receive a notification from your child's teacher(s), please notify that individual teacher. Again, we appreciate the understanding that these decisions are not taken lightly and are grateful for your effort to keep in communication for future events. Make it a great day C-7 family! Dr. Burger

The Angel Tree Committee sent this to our District earlier and we are delayed in forwarding it. Our apologies for the delay but also deep gratitude for their service to our community!! D E A R C O M P A S S I O N A T E H E A R T S , As we reflect on the joy and spirit of giving during the Christmas season, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all those involved in making the Angel Tree project an incredible success. Your generosity, dedication, and unwavering support have brought immense happiness to individuals and families in need. Together, we were able to assist 23 adults, 77 children, and even a beloved furry friend with gifts, ensuring that the holiday season was brighter for each one. Here is just one example of the impact that you made on one single mother’s life this Christmas: Sara is one of the single mothers that was helped because of your generosity. Sara is living in a treatment facility with only her infant and what she could carry with her. She has been running from her previous abusive living situation and trying to start over. After Sara had received the Christmas gifts, she was absolutely overwhelmed. Sara informed her Case Manager how amazing the gifts were and how perfectly the outfits fit her daughter. Sara wants everyone to know how grateful and blessed she is to have received these gifts. Additionally, your kindness extended to filling 130 stockings for those in need, providing them with essentials and heartfelt treats that undoubtedly brought smiles and warmth during this festive time. The impact of your efforts is immeasurable. Through your contributions of time, resources, and compassion, an estimated $30,000 was spent on gifts, while $6,000 was dedicated to filling those 130 stockings. Your willingness to help others, especially during this time of year, is truly inspiring and humbling. The smiles, gratitude, and warmth shared by those who received these gifts and stockings are a testament to the profound difference your support has made in their lives. Your kindness has created cherished memories and moments that will be remembered far beyond the holiday season. Please accept our heartfelt thanks for your invaluable contributions and commitment to the Angel Tree project. Your generosity embodies the spirit of giving and has made a lasting impact on our community. We are immensely grateful for your support and look forward to continuing this meaningful journey together. Wishing you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season filled with happiness, peace, and the same generosity you've shown to others. May God bless you all!

Return to Regular Routes Bus routes will return to regular routes this afternoon (1/17/24). Students will be dropped off at their regular drops and times. Students in grades 4 and below must have a parent visible at drop off. If there is no parent visible, students will be brought back to school. This is our policy under normal circumstances, but is crucial during these dangerously cold conditions.

He will travel back through New Hamburg picking up any students in town (7:00 am). The bus will travel into Kelso on Highway 61 and wait for any families in the Lefty’s parking lot until 7:20 am. At that time, he will travel back Highway 61, picking up any students on the way. Families on this route that will need to either bring their child to school or meet the bus along this route: County Road 217, County Road 214, Leroy Drive, County Road 244, County Road 241, County Road 234, County Road 227 Mr. Randy’s Route will travel from school on Highway A towards Highway 61(6:50) and pick up students along 61.

If you are meeting the buses along the route, please try to pick a location that is a safe spot for the bus to safely stop with visibility for oncoming traffic. It is also essential for an adult to be with students no matter what the age. The wind chills are dangerously cold and having adult supervision is key to ensuring our students are properly clothed and preferably in a warm vehicle. Please make sure students' extremities are covered and have a heavy coat. If your family does not have resources for a coat, please contact the school office. Preschool Families: We encourage you to park your vehicles at the top of the hill and walk your child down the sidewalks. The sidewalks are clear, but the drive still has patches of snow and ice. We look forward to seeing our families tomorrow. Stay safe and warm, Kelso C-7 family!
