School Messenger Communication System

In the event that schools may be closed early, our new communication system, School Messenger will be used to notify parents.

Occasionally it becomes necessary to close schools early. Every effort will be made to notify parents in these circumstances. Please have an emergency plan for your children to follow should school be dismissed early and no one is home.

Listed below are valuable sources that will carry school closing, late opening and early dismissal information for the Kennett Consolidated Schools.

Cancellation / Make-up Days

Days where one-hour and two-hour late openings and early dismissals occur because of bad weather or other emergencies do not need to be made up.

On days where school is cancelled, a make up day will be added as needed.
