Memo from the office

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On Friday, May 1, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed the new Executive Order (E.O. 65 from the Governor's office) expanding provisions for K-12 Learning and Early Childhood Programs. This includes waiving all reproductive health and HIV lessons during the 2019/2020 school year. Since this is already a sensitive subject to teach in person, Kentwood Public Schools elementary classes will be waiving this requirement for the 19-20 school year due to the remote learning option only. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your school principal. Thanks for understanding during this unique time in our country.

Food Assistance

Below is our plan to assist our students/families with meals during the school closure.

Our KPS Child Nutrition Services Department will provide meals to students as follows:

There will be two pick up days each week for our students and families. Breakfast and lunch will be provided in bulk to cover multiple days.

  • Tuesdays: 11:00 Am to 2:00 PM (Pickup meals for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)
  • Fridays: 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM (Pickup meals for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday)

With the most updated information we have at this time, the breakfast and lunch pickup program will be available starting Tuesday, March 17 and ending Tuesday, March 31. We will update you as soon as possible if anything changes.
