Kennedy School Mission Statement

Kennedy School of Stevens Point Area Public School District is located in the village of Junction City, Wisconsin, 11 miles west of Stevens Point and serves families of both the village and rural areas of western Portage County. The School is situated on a beautiful site of 17.7 acres, which allows ample space for all grades to access the outdoors in Physical Education and outdoor classroom activities. The outdoor space enables us to offer an active bird watch program, butterfly gardens, school vegetable/flower garden and a 5 acre school wetland/woods area. These outdoor sites are utilized to augment science curriculum for all ages of students and offer valuable "hands on" opportunities for learning.

Elementary school hours are from 9:05 a.m. to 3:35 p.m.  Staff is on duty on the playground beginning at 8:45 a.m. each school day.  We ask that non-bus students do not arrive at school before that time, as no adult supervision is available.  Parents, we ask for your help in this effort to have children leave home at an appropriate time to gauge their arrival at school.

Children who ride buses are expected to return home on the bus unless a written note from their parent/guardian explaining a change of routine accompanies the child.
