Kellogg Middle School
Middle School Credit Requirements
Students and parents should be aware that the Idaho State Department of Education requires that seventh and eighth grade students earn 80% of the total credits attempted. Additionally, they cannot fail both semesters of the same class. For a Kellogg Middle School student this means they cannot have more than two semester "F" grades or two semester "F" grades in the same subject.
Semester grades are the final grades for the January and June report cards. Students who do not earn the required credits will repeat the grade or need to recover credits in summer school before being promoted to the next grade. Parents are encouraged to track grades on the Skyward system or by having regular communication with the school.
Please contact Mrs. Cheney, the counselor, or Mr. Davidian, the principal if you have any questions about credits. Mrs. Absec, the secretary, has the information for setting up parent Skyward accounts.
Applications for free & reduced price meals may be submitted any time throughout the school year. To apply, an application is available at your child's school or the district office. It can also be found on the Nutrition Services website here:
All applications are strictly confidential and only viewed by the school lunch director. The applications are protected to prevent any kind of discrimination or breach of confidentiality.
