Principal’s Message -2/5/21

Happy Friday KHS Families!

I hope you all had a great week despite the disruptions to our schedule due to the snow. Hopefully, the weather becomes more favorable, and spring weather arrives early!

We are now one week into the third marking period, and our students are working hard to make the most of their learning experiences in the classroom. Please note that while it seems far away, the third marking period will conclude on Wednesday, April 7th. Continue to encourage your children to give their best effort in the classroom and to reach out to their teachers if they need support. If I can be of any assistance to you, I am always here to help and can be reached via email at

Here are a few notes and reminders as we finish up the first week of February:

1. There is no school for students on Monday, February 15th. Please mark your calendars.

2. Regarding attendance, please be advised that we are reinstating the daily automatic absence notifications (via phone calls and emails) beginning on Monday, February 8th.

3. Course scheduling for next school year will be starting near the end of the month. Be on the lookout for information regarding the scheduling process soon.

4. Report cards and honor roll certificates for the second marking period will be mailed home early next week.

5. We are currently hard at work on our plans for graduation and other exciting activities and events for our seniors. While some of these events will look different this year because of restrictions as a result of the pandemic, we are exploring all possibilities to provide our soon-to-be graduates with memorable celebratory experiences.

6. Plans for a prom experience for students are in development. We are working to develop a safe prom plan that adheres to all safety guidelines. While prom will not occur in its traditional format, we will create something enjoyable for our students to participate in this spring. More information will be provided once details are finalized.

7. The SATs for registered Kennett High School students are scheduled for Wednesday, March 3rd. Pre-registration for the SATs will occur the week of February 22nd and the specifics of this process will be sent out next week. All students not registered for the SAT on March 3rd will participate in asynchronous learning activities on this day.

8. Our next PTSO meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 3rd. A Spanish-language session will begin at 6:00 PM, and our English-language session will begin at 7:00 PM. During this meeting, we will discuss course scheduling for next school year.

9. Finally, just a reminder for our students participating virtually, if you have not picked up your materials for the 2nd semester, you can do so after school between the hours of 2:45 and 4:00 PM.

That is all for today. Please have a wonderful Friday, and a relaxing and restful weekend.
