KHS Upcoming Events

After a highly successful first marking period, the holidays are approaching, and our hard working students are nearly 3 weeks into the second grading term. We are proud of the efforts of our students and staff to begin the school year, and we expect the hard work and achievement to continue.

Below you will find important information and different events/activities upcoming over the next several weeks. We hope you find this informative and helpful to supporting your student this school year.

  • While the second marking period just began, please be mindful that it concludes on Friday, January 17th.
  • All students will take midterm exams Monday, January 13th through Friday, January 17th. A schedule will be shared soon with all students and families.
  • Just a reminder that all of our students must wear school-provided identification badges and lanyards this year. We require all students to wear these badges to enhance the safety of our school. Please reinforce with your student(s) the importance of wearing their identification badge(s) to school every day.
    • Continuing on the topic of safety, throughout the year, we conduct practice evacuation drills and lockdown drills to ensure all students and staff are prepared for emergency situations. At KHS PTSO Meetings this school year and last school year, we discussed the implementation of our new crisis response procedures called ALICE. We will be conducting our first practice enhanced lockdown drill November 13th during the school day in which staff will be talking with students about how to respond in a crisis situation to ensure safety. We have already announced this to all students and staff for awareness purposes. 
  • We will have a PTSO Meeting on Monday, November 18th at 6:30 PM in the high school library. During this time, the principals will be sharing information regarding changes to graduation requirements related to the Keystone Exams and graduation projects. We hope you are able to attend!
  • On Monday, November 11th, Ms. Eileen Rudisill was named as Kennett High School’s new assistant principal. She will begin her duties at KHS in January.
  • Finally, please mark your calendars for our 5th Annual We Are Kennett Night on Thursday, December 5th at 6:30 PM. This is a great opportunity for our elementary and middle school students in the district to learn what KHS is all about!

Thank you for all of your support of Kennett High School! Please know that we strive every day to do all that we can to help our students have the best learning experience possible!
