School Closing (Weather)
School Closing (Weather)
If the Kent ISD Secondary programs are closed due to weather, MySchool@Kent classes will NOT be held. The decision to close will be announced over the local radio and television media. Students should listen to major stations, particularly WOOD and WZZM television stations and WLAV and WOOD radio stations if bad weather is expected. Additionally, a school messenger will be sent out. Please be sure we have your updated contact information (phone and/or email).
Attendance at MySchool@Kent is performance based. Students should be logging in one hour per course, five days per week. Therefore, attendance is based on the following:
- Number of hours logged into coursework
- Successful completion of assignments
- Communication with instructors and coaches
A student is considered in violation of the Attendance Policy if he/she is not passing an online course AND is logging into that course less than 5 hours per week or not attending lab sessions weekly. Should attendance become an issue in student success, a contract may be initiated in attempt to create successful learning. Failure to meet the terms of the contract may result in being dropped MS@K and/or non-return for the following term. Students/parents are expected to call in to excuse students if they are absent for a learning lab session. Long-term absences (three or more consecutive days) that are medically-related or due to a death in the family may receive more flexible considerations if documentation is provided to the MS@K administration.
