Frequently Asked Questions Regarding State Mandated School Closing

Front of Building

One way parents can stay up to date on the latest information from Kentwood Public Schools is to make sure they are signed up for our "School Messenger" communications. Students are automatically included with their School email address. We are working with local agencies to get our messages translated into several different languages.

They can also access our communications and information at the kentwoodps.org website main page under "News & Announcements".

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.

After the completion of each pick up, the location will be thoroughly cleaned by Facilities and Operations staff.

Memo from the office

Please send a note to school with your child for the teacher or the office staff if your child is going to leave early or go home in a different way.

If you forget to send a note, you may call the office no later than 3 PM to make a change. After that time your child will be sent home at the end of the day in the usual manner.

We ask this for the safety of the students. We want to insure that they arrive safely home.

It is also important that students stay the entire day. If you are the one who provides transportation for your child, please refrain from checking them out just before the bell. Please wait for them at the drop off/pickup point by the yellow gate.

Dismissal is at 3:26.
