Dear Kentfield School Community,

Today our school sites returned to Hybrid Instruction and welcomed our students back to campus. At Bacich we served 208 students, while at Kent we had 147 students on site. Children were excited to be at school and they were welcomed with absolute joy!

As many may be aware, on Friday, Marin Public Health issued a press release about the new Bay Area Stay-at-Home Order, which will go into effect in Marin on Tuesday, December 8th at noon. This action was done collectively among our Bay Area counties to proactively address the possibility of a State Regional Order that was shared by our Governor on December 3rd. This new local Stay-at-Home Order does not modify existing state or local guidance regarding TK-12 schools, which permits our school district to continue to offer in-classroom instruction. Guidance from local and state public health continues to guide and inform our school operations in the time of COVID-19.

Tomorrow morning at 11:00 a.m., Marin Public Health Officer, Dr. Matt Willis, and Deputy Public Health Officer, Dr. Lisa Santora, will host a Community Conversation related to COVID-19 in Marin County and the recent information about the Stay-at-Home Orders in our county and state. Please see the attached flyer to submit your questions before the webinar. If you are unable to join, it will be recorded and posted to our KSD website. I hope that you will watch this webinar to learn more about how the Stay-at-Home Order affects our schools and community.

Stay Well,

Superintendent Signature
