KEEPING STUDENTS SAFE: Kenmare Public School uses Bark for Schools to help us monitor school-issued accounts for signs of digital dangers. When potential issues like cyberbullying, suicidal ideation, and threats of violence arise, Bark sends us a notification. Parents and guardians can benefit from receiving these alerts, as well.
Kids use their school-issued accounts both at school and at home, and families are often in a better position to respond to urgent alerts after hours, on weekends, and during breaks. These are times when administration may not be available in the event of an emergency. In the coming days, you will receive an invitation to create your free account for the Bark for Schools Parent Portal. As soon as you opt in, you’ll start receiving after-hours alerts when Bark detects potentially time-sensitive issues.
Bark for Schools is free for both our school and for you. For even greater coverage, you can also sign up for Bark for Families, which monitors texts, chat, email, YouTube, and 30+ social media platforms for potential safety concerns. Kenmare Public School has secured a 20% discount for Bark for Families — you’ll only have to pay $7.20 per month to cover an unlimited number of accounts, devices, and children.
If you have any questions, please contact us by email, phone, or Facebook Messenger. Thank you for your support as we strive to help keep our students safe both online and in real life.

DISTANCE LEARNING INFORMATION: KPS is going digital! In order to abide by Governor Burgum's guidelines, we are setting up digital learning for students. Teachers will be sending information to students through your KPS email or through Remind and Facebook for younger grades.
We've added a new tab to our website (www.kenmare.k12.nd.us) titled "Distance Learning." This tab has tutorials for Zoom and Google Classroom, guides to resources and a document titled "Opportunities for Learning" where all teacher links are housed. Please refer back to this tab on the website (pictured below) because it will continue to be updated as more information is shared.
Again, be sure to fill out the Nutritional Needs Survey if you are in need of meals at this time and contact Dr. Godfrey if you are in need of internet services.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions--we can get through this new adventure together!view image
TEACHER CARAVAN: Students, we miss you! Teachers will be participating in a caravan around Kenmare starting at 3:30 TOMORROW, MARCH 24TH. Wave to us as we come down your block but remember to practice social distancing to stay safe! We can't wait to see you! 💛
PARENT/STUDENT PICK-UP REMINDER: Parents and students are allowed to pick up materials/devices on TUESDAY, March 24th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for the high school building, and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for the K-2 building. Students in grades 3-6 will check out a Chromebook to take home for E-Learning. Students in grades 7-12 already have Chromebooks checked out in their name. Students in grades K-2 will be allowed to check out a Chromebook IF there is not a device for them to use at home.
Students and parents will not be allowed in the building for your safety--those materials will be brought out to you. Please remember to practice social distancing while waiting. KPS wants you to stay healthy and safe!
Students, we miss you and hope you are healthy and safe! 💛view image
