On behalf of Chief Riley, we would like to thank our local businesses that have been following our Governor's series of Executive Orders as well as abiding by the closures and restrictions issued by the Pinellas County Commission while we are under a State of Emergency.

We greatly value our Town’s businesses and associations and thank each owner, operator, and manager for recognizing the greater good during these unprecedented times.

We would also like to thank our residents and school children for complying with these restrictions and for educating themselves, their neighbors, and their loved ones on the guidelines issued by the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and the CDC to curb transmission of the #coronavirus and to protect our population that is most at risk.

We believe that our collective actions going forward will slow the spread of the virus and will be of invaluable help to medical professionals and first responders in the course of their duties. We are in this together.

The Kenneth City Police Department continues to patrol, protect and support our community 24 hours a day and our men and women consider it an honor to serve you.

You know what to do, Kenneth City! #WeAreInThisTogether #CommunityPolicing #PinellasHealth #SocialDistancing #FlattenTheCurve #ThinkofOthers

Reminder- this is NOT a hurricane! Floridians do not need to prepare as if a hurricane is coming. DO practice social distancing to prevent the spread of #COVID19. Read more on social distancing - http://bit.ly/2U9mnoR

Kenneth City, we are in this together! As your police department, your safety and the well-being of your family and all our community members is our priority. The Centers for Disease Control are currently recommending #socialdistancing and other hygiene precautions (such as frequent, thorough hand washing) as measures to reduce exposure to the coronavirus, but we do realize most people still must go out to work to provide for their families and to earn a living, to run errands, to purchase food or groceries, to seek out other services, or simply need to ensure their vehicles are clean during pollen season and maintained for their commute.
That is why, from a Community Policing perspective, we would like to remind our Readers that if they are going out for goods and services to fill daily or weekly needs, there are opportunities and ways in which they can support our local Kenneth City businesses. Our Kenneth City businesses help make our Town a better and more interesting place to live; our restaurants, markets, shops, and services build on each others’ successes and contribute to our community’s quality of life.
Between responsibilities on patrol, our Community Policing Unit and Day Shift officers visited as many businesses in Town today that they could to respond to questions, listen to concerns, and to gather some of the ideas listed below as ways to provide support.
Here are some ways to support the commercial fabric of Kenneth City while following current CDC Guidelines: call our local eateries and inquire if they offer home delivery, take-out, or pre-paid “to-go” orders; take advantage of reduced waiting times at our auto repair shops and drop-off and pick up your vehicle without having to go inside a store, get your car cleaned at a “touchless” automatic car wash; and if you have the means, buy a gift card offered by a local business, tip a higher percentage, and, again, order to go! There are currently over 100 businesses in Kenneth City – take a look at just the few represented in this Album, and see what they have to offer!

We're proud to share that our local Kenneth City Winn-Dixie located at 5802 54th Ave N, has designated a special shopping hour for seniors and high risk customers, from 8 – 9 a.m., Monday through Friday to reduce exposure to and transmission of #COVID19. This holds true for all Winn Dixie stores. In addition, #WinnDixie 's parent company, Southeastern Grocers (SEG), is donating $250,000 to Feeding America® to help provide support to those facing food insecurity and they are expediting the hiring process for people who have applied for positions at their stores who have been affected by restricted working hours and layoffs. Winn Dixie, we value your partnership with our community. Thank you for giving back in this way.

On behalf of the men and women of the Town of Kenneth City Police Department, we truly thank the 3 Daughters Brewing Team for their generous efforts in supporting our 1st responders during this evolving time. We appreciate the community partnership with your company and thank you for supplying us with homemade hand sanitizer. By your doing so we have been able to replenish and equip our staff in the field with the necessary precautions to manage exposure. #WeAreInThisTogether #COVID19

**UPDATE**


SANITIZER BOTTLES
After running out of our first batch of hand sanitizer almost immediately, we are now working overtime to produce as much as possible. A large portion of our initial batch went to first responders, law enforcement and high-risk individuals, as our number one priority continues to be the health and safety of our families and community. We will share updates and work through official channels as more becomes available.


OTHER BREWERIES
We have already shared best practices with other breweries so they can utilize their facilities in a similar manner. To any breweries reading this who are interested in making sanitizer, email [email protected] and include the name of your brewery in the subject line.


TO OUR COMMUNITY
As we continue to navigate these unique times, we appreciate the leadership of our local and national governments who are operating under difficult circumstances. All breweries in Florida have been given permission to operate as a package store and sell beer to go, which means that, starting immediately, we have six packs and crowlers of beer, cider and seltzer available for to-go purchase only in our Tasting Room.

If you are able, and feel safe doing so, we're here for anyone in our community who could go for a beer right now. Check our website for updated hours as we follow the guidelines handed down, and don’t forget that you can also find our beer, cider and seltzer in stores across Florida.


As all of us in our city, our state, our country, and our world join together in fighting this disease, we want to again thank those who are putting their lives on the line to keep us safe. We know that we'll emerge from this as a more resilient and conscientious people. And when that time comes, we'll meet you in our Tasting Room for a cold pint and good conversation.


Until then, stay tuned for more updates.


Thank you.

SCHOOL CLOSURE AND DIGITAL LEARNING PLANS UPDATE
March 18, 2020
10 a.m.

We want to thank everyone for their continued support during this time of uncertainty. Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Department of Education are requiring all school districts in the state to close for students until April 15.

From March 23-27, all schools will undergo deep cleaning and all employees will engage in activities that will support preparation for digital instruction. During this time, our goal is for students and families to access grade-level, academic enrichment activities and get to know the digital platforms that are available through our Digital Learning Students and Families webpage.

On Monday, March 30, the district will transition to course/class specific assignments developed and led by their teachers utilizing the Microsoft 365 Teams platform.

We want to make this change as easy as possible. All resources for students and families, including frequently asked questions and how-to tutorials are available on our Digital Learning Students and Families webpage:. https://www.pcsb.org/Page/32734

Check www.pcsb.org/coronavirus for future updates.
