Kennedy Elementary School

Foot and Mouth Disease

In our return to school, we have had reported cases of Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease (HFMD) at both Kennedy and Jefferson Elementary buildings.  While the number of students at this point is minimal, it is prudent for us to inform parents immediately so we can all be prepared to take preventive action.


The staff at Kennedy Elementary and I are looking forward to an exciting school year. Kennedy Elementary offers a challenging academic program along with many athletic opportunities and after school programs. We are proud of the programs our school offers and encourage you to work hard, do your best, and find success both academically and in your personal accomplishments.

We offer the following programs throughout the year:

  • Kennedy Mentoring Program
  • Paraprofessional Assistance
  • After-School Tutoring
  • Response to Intervention (RTI)
  • Safenet
