Summer Algebra 1 EOC July 15, 2020 and July 16, 2020
This summer and every administration window until they pass or receive a comparative score, students will have the opportunity to sit for the Algebra 1 EOC. Students who were enrolled in Algebra 1 this year only will need to earn a passing score on a high school math EOC (Algebra or Geometry) for graduation. After they take Geometry, they can sit for the Geometry EOC to fulfill this requirement. However, it is recommended they attempt the Algebra EOC--there is no grade penalty for not passing the test. Kernan Middle School will offer the Algebra 1 EOC July 15th and July 16th. At this time, we will adhere to guidelines which are currently 9 (students): 1 (test administrator). If you plan to take the assessment this summer please complete the survey.
Please go to this site to complete the survey.

Florida State Statute 1003.22 requires that all students entering seventh grade must receive the Tdap vaccine, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough). All seventh-grade students need to show proof of Tdap immunization before starting school. This requirement is in addition to other immunization requirements that are grade-appropriate.
Health care providers should document the Tdap vaccine on the Florida Certificate of Immunization form 680. Religious exemptions are documented on form 681. Parents of seventh-grade students should make sure to bring the form to their children's school before the first day of school. Seventh-graders will not be allowed to attend class if schools do not have a 680 or 681 form on file. Many students have already received the Tdap vaccine and simply need to supply proof to their schools. The Florida Department of Health in Duval County provides free vaccines for children. For more information, please call the district's Health Services department at (904) 253-1130.
Moving from elementary to middle school can be one of the most difficult transitions a student will make. We're here to help students get acclimated to KMS by hosting our annual Summer Bridge Program for our incoming 6th graders. The program will help students get to know some of their fellow classmates and teachers, learn how to navigate our campus, and get to have their questions answered by our panel of students.
Our 2020 Summer Bridge Program will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams on Thursday, July 30th from 9:00-noon. In order to register and participate, go to kernancounselors.weebly.com Registration is open until Wednesday, July 29th.
