Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,


I hope you are enjoying your Summer of 2022!  The Kernan Staff wishes all of our students and their families a safe and wonderful summer.  Be sure to spend a lot of time playing outside and enjoying the sunshine we have been waiting so long to see.  Also, be sure to take some time each day and read.  Read a book, a newspaper, a cereal box, or anything else you see with print on it. 

We look forward to seeing you when we all return to school on Tuesday, September 6th.  Keep a lookout for a mailing at the end of August with important information about the start of the school year, school supplies and more.


See you soon and HAPPY SUMMER!

 Kimberly VanDuren
