April 1st 2020 Note: We are working to continue The Kennedy Times on a virtual basis since Somerville schools have closed until May due to the coronavirus outbreak - see our posts on coronavirus and social distancing. Students did get to enjoy the Snowflake Festival before the shutdown, though it feels like a million years ago! Our survey* on wireless earphones is still open: we encourage you to participate! Stay tuned for more content and most importantly, stay healthy : )


*Survey is not mobile-friendly; follow link to complete on larger screen only!

We all belong.
