- Kensington School Return to In-Person Support Survey
Hello Kensington Families,
We are excited and planning to be able to open the school building starting April 19 for students to return to in-person support. We plan to open on-campus hubs from 11:00-2:00 on Monday-Wednesday.
In order to be able to provide the best possible model of in-person support, we need to have a better understanding of your interest in returning in person. Please complete this Intent-to-Return Survey by 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 6.
Your response will assist us in outlining the model that we will be able to offer. Responding to this survey will help us understand your preference so that we can match student interest to our number of available staff. This is an initial survey to gauge interest. We will be sending a final intent-to return form which will outline the specific options, when we return from the spring recess on April 12.
Families should know that our core instruction mode is still DISTANCE LEARNING, augmented by in-person support for our neediest students.
Our Site model for in-person support will depend on available staffing Any additional spaces will be made available to any interested student/family.
Also, please know that the in-person support may be with another educator that is not your student’s teacher if your teacher remains teaching online. We are still gathering information about which staff members will participate in person.
Again, please let us know your intent no later than Tuesday, April 6, at 5 p.m. We will send a final intent-to-return form starting the week of April 12.

- About Site Council
The School Site Council (SSC) is composed of the school principal and 8-10 parents, teachers and other staff selected by their peers, representing all segments of the school community for the common goal of supporting student success. The SSC does this by developing and monitoring the implementation of the school’s plan known as the Single Plan for Student Achievement. The SSC also determines how certain funds received by the school for this purpose should be spent.
The SSC members are the principal; teacher representatives; other staff representatives; parents/other community representatives, and student representatives at the secondary level with each group selected by their peers.
