Principal’s Message 2/22/21

KHS Families,

Once again, we encountered another snowy and icy week, but we were able to push through and continue with instruction through our virtual program. I am sure all of us are looking forward to the promise of warmer weather this springtime, which hopefully is not too far away. As we close out another Friday in this unique school year, I wanted to provide a few notes, reminders, and updates.

1. Pre-Registration for our students taking the SAT at KHS on March 3rd is scheduled during the Flex Period beginning Monday, February 22, 2021. Please see the schedule for Pre-Registration below. For students who are participating in the virtual learning program, they may attend according to the below schedule, or attend either of the after school pre-registration sessions which are being offered Tuesday, February 23rd and Thursday, February 25th from 3:00 – 3:45 PM. Students should report to the main lobby on these days, and they will be directed to the Pre-Registration location. A friendly reminder that face masks must be worn, social distancing parameters must be followed, and the health screening should be completed prior to coming into the building.

Attached to this email is important information regarding student attendance. Please take the time to carefully read through this information. Click Here to view: KCSD Attendance Reminders
