Schools to be Closed on Election Day, May 7

Kettering City Schools Closed on Election Day, May 7

April 3, 2019

 

Dear Parents and Guardians

Montgomery County’s May Election Day for primary and special election voting is Tuesday, May 7. By law, public school districts are required to allow their schools to be used as polling places on Election Day, and several of the buildings in the Kettering City Schools are used as polling places for the community.

Following school safety best practices, the district restricts access to visitors to our schools during normal school hours. In the past, the Kettering City Schools have closed schools used as polling places to ensure our children remain in a safe, secure environment. With this in mind, the Board of Education and administration have made the decision to close all schools in the district for the May 7 election.

Teachers and staff will have a normal work day and will participate in professional development activities to continue to learn and grow as professionals. Some of these professional learning activities will include:  ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) crisis simulation training with the Kettering Police Department (https://www.alicetraining.com/ ; math, English and language arts resources and instruction training, and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) training (http://bit.ly/2FUElW5).

The purpose of the training is to ensure our students and staff are safe, supported and continue to receive world class instruction. Thank you for your support of a Safe, Responsible, Respectful learning environment for all of our students!

Please feel free to contact us or your unit/building principal with any questions.

Sincerely,

Scott Inskeep
Superintendent

Dan Von Handorf
Assistant Superintendent
Teaching and Instruction
