Kettle Run High School
Fauquier County Public Schools reminds parents and guardians of school-age children that immunizations and physicals are still required for school enrollment and have not been waived due to COVID-19. Planning ahead to complete these state requirements for school enrollment will ensure a smooth and safe start when schools reopen.
Thanks to the generosity of Fauquier FISH, A Little Heart, and Saint James’ Episcopal Church and School, every family who comes to Grab-and-Go Meal sites will leave with food this summer—even if the site runs out of the meals they have planned. Working together, these organizations, along with help from SPARC Research and the Highland School community, assembled more than 1,000 “snow day kits” to address the needs of Fauquier County children who may be food insecure.
We join our students, staff, families, and community members who are horrified by the death of Mr. George Floyd and the national outcry that has ensued since his murder. We denounce hatred, racism, and violence of any kind and commit to addressing the inequities that continue to exist in our schools and community.
The Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health (FRESH) program is sponsoring the Fill the Bucket Virtual 5K on June 18 through 21. FRESH’s goal is to provide 500 buckets filled with produce and fun summer activities for Fauquier children in need. In partnership with Fauquier FISH, The Heartwood Center, Fauquier Family Shelter Services, and Community Touch, Inc., FRESH will fill and donate a bucket to a child in need for each person who registers and completes the race. Registration is FREE!

Student of the Month: Grace Loving
The Student of the Month for November and December is Grace Loving! Grace was chosen by a couple of her teachers. Mrs. Kelsey shared "Grace is a student who consistently comes to class with a smile and a "good morning!". Grace works hard to understand and apply the concepts that we are learning in class. She is always willing to contribute to the conversation, help out a classmate or do a kind act just because."
Mrs. Erwin also nominated her because "Grace is a travel student that is always on top of getting her work completed and asking all the right questions to learn everything she can in Biology class here at KRHS. She will re-write and create new notes to study for quizzes and tests and then will study with her peers to help them as well. She is selfless and loves to interact with others in labs. Grace's smile is welcoming daily and it is refreshing that she takes her learning so seriously."
