Dear Students, Parents, and Friends of Theodore Roosevelt High School,
Spring is the season of new beginnings. Hopefully, this spring will treat the Kent learning community well and hopefully, we all will be healthy and able to complete the school year on a positive note. Listed below are some of the changes we are making for April 6.
After Spring Break, beginning Tuesday, April 6, cohorts A/B will be combined and A/B students will be attending in-person learning at Roosevelt, Tuesday through Friday. If you have an A/B student that is interested in switching to remote learning, please contact your counselor as soon as possible. After Spring Break, remote students are expected to continue to attend their classes remotely according to their class schedule, Tuesday through Friday from the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Even though parents and guardians made the decision to keep their students remote prior to the second semester for the entire semester, we understand they may want their child to return after spring break. If you would like your student to return after spring break, please contact your counselor and we will place you on a list. Please keep in mind, we want to accommodate as many students in-person, four days a week, as we safely can.
Our graduation committee is continuing to work on graduation plans for the Class of 2021. Graduation is currently scheduled for Saturday, May 22, 2021. We are also planning for an in person commencement and reaching out to venues in the area that can accommodate us. We will continue to keep you posted as our plans unfold.
Enjoy the rest of your spring break,
As you may know, state law requires districts and community schools to administer the End of Course tests to students in the spring of this school year. TRHS will conduct testing from April 6th through April 30th.
Students and parents have received an email with their testing schedule. Students will also need to bring their charged chromebook for testing. Once testing is complete, students will be returning to class
Please be sure that your student is well rested and nourished on the morning of the test.
During this trying time with COVID 19, we have taken extra precautions to distance, sanitize and keep the cohorts together wherever possible.
If you have any questions please call your students school counselor at 330-676-8720

We are completing this survey to help us determine if the KSU Hotel’s 250 event capacity can accommodate the number of students and dates who want attend. If we exceed the capacity limit, we may need to resurvey and relocate to a new venue. By saying YES, this secures your spot. Complete the survey HERE NO LATER THAN 9:00 a.m., FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 2021.
Ticket prices are anticipated to be approximately $30 per person and MUST be purchased in advance (details for ticket sales will be shared later). Additionally, if you purchase a ticket, you must attend BOTH the dinner and dance. If you do bring a guest/date, please plan to purchase both tickets at the same time.
We are hopeful that you can also bring a guest/date if you choose to (note that you do not have to have a date).
We will follow the COVID guidelines as per the venue and the state governor’s guidelines:
