Full-time Kinnikinnick School Principal Mrs. Miller immediately guided Mr. Kellogg to the school drop-off line where he opened doors for his classmates, with many saying "Good Morning Principal Kellogg" as they exited.

Principal-For-A-Day Leads School Announcements, Pushes 'Kellogg Kart'

Doing all the normal daily activities the regular school principal does, Bryce also led the morning announcements on the school PA, and sent out a phone alert the night before letting parents know he was starting a new school rule of wearing hats and hoodies.
