School Closure, Tuesday, 1/24/23 Kelso C-7 School will be closed on Tuesday, 1/24/23 due to utility repairs. We expect the repairs to be completed in one day. The make up day for this will be the in-service day scheduled for February 17th. Students will now be in session 2/17/23.
Good morning Falcon Families!! Here is our visual schedule for the week! We are looking at a possible school closures this for both weather and a utility repair. Liberty Utilities needs to make an upgrade to our gas line that would leave us without heat, hot water, or the ability to cook lunch. With the current temperatures, the lack of heat is not safe or conducive to the learning environment for our kiddos. We are working the with the utility company to establish a repair date and will let our families know as soon as possible. In the case of a closing, parents will be notified by our app, social media, and KFVS 12. With that being said, if you have not downloaded the app and allowed for push notifications, it’s not too late! Go to the app store and search “Kelso C-7” to find it. It’s a free download. Here is a link to YouTube tutorial to help. https://youtu.be/8P0cJ3icV3s I will pass along the repair dates as soon as we are notified and we will keep our eye on the weather. Have a great week Kelso C-7 Family!
Possible Storms/Rain at Dismissal 1/18/23 It is looking like we may experience some inclement weather during dismissal. If the case of heavy rain or stormy conditions our dismissal procedures will transition a little. Families in the car rider line will continue to line up in two rows around the parking lot and two lines in the middle if needed. School employees will bring students out three cars/families at a time starting with the outer row. When the three cars are loaded, a school employee will motion for those cars to go and the following cars to pull forward. We will load and dismiss the outer row (closest to the building), the inner row, and then the middle row. There is no real change to how our families line up; the change will be how students are brought out, causing a little longer wait. We appreciate your help keeping our students safe through all conditions.
Tomorrow is a big day!! Our basketball team and cheerleading squad start their play at the Annual Notre Dame Regional Tournament!!

Mini Cheer Camp Rescheduled AND 1st Ever Inter Squad Scrimmage Thank you all for your understanding and flexibility as we work to keep our students healthy. It's a huge task during this time of year! Our cheer and basketball coaches have worked together to not only reschedule the mini cheer camp but host its first ever inter squad scrimmage game. Mini cheer leaders will be showing their spirit and learning from our own Falcon Cheer Squad on Monday, 12/5 and Tuesday, 12/6 from 5:30 - 7:30 at the St. Lawrence Gym. We do ask parents to drop off their mini cheerleaders promptly at 5:30 and pick up at 7:30 pm. Our boys basketball will be practicing until 5:30, so we ask that you curb the mini's excitement by keeping them in your vehicle until as close as possible to start time. Wednesday, 12/7 will be the grand finale. Starting at 6 pm at the St. Lawrence Gym, the boys basketball teams will battle it out bragging rights in the first ever inter squad scrimmage game. Falcon v. Falcon. Our mini cheerleaders and Falcon Squad will be performing a Holiday treat at halftime! Mini Cheerleaders are asked to wear a Santa or holiday hat. All of our spectators are invited to join the holiday fun as well! Admission is a canned food item or a cash donation to the Jesus in Disguise Food Pantry in Benton. Come join us for fun, holiday spirit filled evening for all!
MINI CHEER CAMP DELAYED Good evening all, Due to an outbreak of illness, we believe its best to delay the mini cheer camp. We know our mini Falcons are extremely excited to show their spirit!

We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we work to keep our learning environment as healthy as possible. Thank you! Dr. Burger

Camp is the same: Tuesday, 11/29 and Wednesday, 11/30 from 5 to 7 pm at the St. Lawrence gym. Snacks will be provided both camp nights. Thursday, 12/1: ONLY grades preK-Third will perform, and this will be at the START of the 6 pm game. Please arrive no later than 5:45. Families may leave after the performance, if they wish. We understand the younger students have earlier bedtimes and nighttime routines. Friday, 12/2: ONLY grades 4-5 will perform and due to their smaller numbers, only they will be allowed to cheer on the sidelines with our cheerleaders for the first and second quarters of the JV game at 6. We are so excited and can't wait to share cheerleading with this large group of awesome mini cheerleaders. Thanks for your understanding and support!
