 OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON COVID-19 FROM THE KELLEYS ISLAND SCHOOL 

The Kelleys Island School is closed per the direction of our governor.  Our teachers are communicating through skype, assigned packets, and assignments on the internet.  The
students were each given a laptop to use at home.  Our Tech Specialist, Janice Kraus, has sent numerous contacts on the internet for further education.
We have also closed the gym as all fitness certers are required to close.  We are sorry to inconvenience those of you who are working on certain machines to rehab and to maintain your figures. The key cards work for now but will only get you into the hallway.  Thank you for your understanding and desire to help our country move forward.  Breathe deeply and wash your hands.  Best regards to all.

            Parent and Teacher Resources

With the close of schools and children working from home, teaching has definitely changed for awhile.  Teachers are doing their teaching remotely and parents have become the teacher at home.  I wanted to share resources that might be helpful to all in meeting this challenge .  These resources are lesson plans, activities, discussions, virtual field trips and videos. There is something for all grade levels and curriculum areas.  I will add to this page often. I hope that these resources will be helpful.

Kelleys Island School Running Club

The Kelleys Island School Running Club has been busy keeping up with their work, doing inside running at the school gymnasium.   They work on improving all of their running skills...starting, running techniques, pacing and teamwork. 

On the last day of Winter Running Club, the runners asked to run a mile...that is 22 laps in the gymnasium.  Coach Smith kept track of each persons laps and used encouraging word games to keep everyone motivated and entertained during their efforts.  The picures below show the "team members" working together with Glade to help her finishher last laps. Glade shows her happiness by spreading open her arms in jubilation.  Nice teamwork!!!
