John F. Kennedy High School Bulletin


September 17, 2020

Dear John F. Kennedy Students and Families:

As we come to the end of the first full week of distance education, I want to thank you for your patience and support. I am pleased to share that classrooms are running smoothly, and students are receiving robust instruction. 

A few important pieces of information follow. Should you have a question or concern, the staff and I stand ready to assist.

Back-to-School Night

Make-Up Textbook Distribution Event Monday, September 14


Good morning, John F. Kennedy Families.

This is Principal David Van Natten.

Smoke from numerous wildfires that continue to burn in northern California has contributed to unhealthy air quality throughout the Sacramento Valley. At the direction of the school district, all textbook distribution scheduled for today has been canceled. Teachers will be notified, and students will not be penalized.

Dear John F. Kennedy Families: 

As some may already know, schools around the nation are confronting a phenomenon known as “zoombombing,” defined as unwanted disruptions by Internet hackers during a Zoom class or meeting. In an effort to minimize these disturbances at John F. Kennedy, teachers will enable a feature that allows only authenticated users to enter our virtual classrooms. This additional layer of security allows students in but keeps others out.
