The athletic office has worked with Cloud9 Sports to ship and deliver all items ordered through the online stores directly to home addresses. Items are shipping this week. If you do not receive your ordered items by April 17, please email Tracey Umeda - she will follow-up on any issues after Spring Break.
With the Governor's decision to close schools for the rest of the school year, the WIAA has since confirmed that any form of a spring sports season has been cancelled. The athletic office and spring coaches are working together in order to:
- Host "Senior Night" celebrations | Traditional Senior Night posters have been produced, and virtual senior nights are being scheduled for the last week of April and first week of May, as they would traditionally be held.
- Collect uniforms and equipment | Information will be sent out after Spring Break with directions on how student-athletes can return all uniforms, warm-ups and equipment that was checked out prior to school closure.
Kennedy Catholic is currently seeking host families for our international students for the 2020-2021 school year. International students are excited to experience family life in America, learn English and share their culture and traditions with their homestay families. A generous financial stipend is provided.
For more information please select 'Read More.'
The Office of International Education is reaching out to international students and host families during the school closure to help coordinate any necessary travel.
In the event that an international student needs to travel during the school closure, they must complete the COVID-19 Special International Travel Procedure before they can depart.
Host families, if your international student has talked with you about travel plans, please inform them of the required pre-departure procedure and contact the Housing Coordinator to plan for the housing check out.
Please contact the International Department with questions.
