A Message From Dr. Hritz

Happy Friday KHS Families,

I hope all of you have had a great week and that you are ready for a relaxing weekend! Our school year is drawing to a close, as we only have 29 school days remaining in the year. Since we are nearly halfway through the 4th marking period, please encourage your children to give their best effort in the classroom to finish the school year on a positive note.

Here are a few notes as we move into the weekend:

1) Our next PTSO Meeting (virtual) is scheduled for Tuesday, May 3rd at 6:00 pm. The link for this meeting will be sent the morning of May 3rd. This is the final PTSO for the school year!

2) A reminder that AP testing begins on Monday, May 2nd and will conclude Friday, May 13th. The students who are taking AP Exams have been notified with their testing schedule and exam locations.

Additionally, Keystone Exams are scheduled to begin May 16th and will continue through May 24th. Students who are testing will be notified by the school with their testing information. As we did last school year, we will follow a modified schedule during Keystone Exams. Students who are not taking the Keystone Exams and who do not require district provided transportation to school will be permitted to arrive at school after testing has finished for the day at 9:50 am. Students who are not testing are to arrive at KHS between 9:50 and 10:00. The first class will begin promptly at 10:00 each day. Students who are not taking the Keystone Exams and require district transportation to school on the Keystone Exam dates, should take their normally scheduled bus to school. These students will report to the cafeteria for the duration of testing each morning.

3) Final Exams for seniors are scheduled from Thursday, June 2nd through Tuesday, June 7th. Final Exams for underclassmen are scheduled from Tuesday, June 7th through Friday, June 10th. Please note that June 7th through June 10th are half-days of school for students. Additionally, please note that the weight of final exams has been adjusted for this year. Instead of counting for 15% of the overall grade for the school year, they will now count for 15% of the 4th marking period grade. Students, please ensure you are prepared to demonstrate mastery of your courses on your final exams and give your best effort. A message will be sent next week with the schedule and full details for final exams.

4) Tuesday, May 17th in an Asynchronous Learning Day for students. There is no school for students on Monday, May 30th in observation of the Memorial Day holiday.

5) Just a reminder that Teacher Appreciation Week is next week. Please consider making an effort to share your gratitude and appreciation for your child’s teachers next week!

6) Finally, Prom returns to the DuPont Country Club in Delaware, and we are very excited for our students to have this opportunity to celebrate! We hope all attendees have a safe, enjoyable, and memorable experience!

That is all for today! Have a great Friday, and an even better weekend!

Thank you,

Jeremy Hritz, Ed.D.

Principal’s Message-3/4/22

Happy Friday Kennett High School Families,

I hope all of you have had a great first week of March! Time is flying by, and there are only 16 school days remaining in marking period 3. Please continue to encourage your children to focus on their academics and to give their best effort in the classroom. I believe in all of our students’ abilities to succeed in their learning, and I want nothing more for them than to finish the third marking period on a positive note.

As we close out the week, I wanted to provide a few notes, reminders, and updates:

1. Wednesday, March 16th will be an asynchronous learning day for students, and teachers will be available for office hours from 8:45 – 9:45 am. Teachers will provide students work via Schoology that they are to complete independently. More specific information regarding class assignments will be forthcoming from your child’s teachers.

2. A reminder to families of all junior students that graduation projects should be completed by this point in this school year. Students who have not yet finished their graduation projects will not be able to attend Prom, to enroll in Senior Option for next year, or to register for a senior parking spot. Please check with your students to make sure all of their components of the graduation project are complete.

3. A reminder to families of all current 9th grade students, students may still enroll in a Degree Program for their 10th grade year, or if they are currently enrolled in a Degree Program and would like to change it, they may still do so between now and the end of the school year. If your student is interested in doing so, please contact me at jhritz@kcsd.org.

4. Starting Monday, March 21st, KHS will celebrate its first-ever Career Week, focused on highlighting the importance of career-readiness, and creating opportunities for students to interact with local businesses in the areas of finance, law, agriculture, and many others. On Tuesday, March 22nd, KHS will host our first-ever Career Fair during 7th block in which students will have the opportunity to learn about local businesses, potential internship opportunities, and essential skills to be successful in future careers. All current KHS Degree Program students will attend, and any other student interested in attending should register by completing this linked form (click here). There will also be trivia opportunities to enter drawings to win gift cards, so be sure to stay tuned for more information! Additionally, we will be hosting our first-ever KHS Degree Programs Night virtually to share more information about our innovative Degree Programs and to provide opportunities for families and students to talk with the teachers of the programs. This event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 23rdat 6:00 PM and more information will be coming soon.

5. Just a reminder that students should have completed elective requests for next school year, as the Skyward course selection system will be closed. If you have any questions about course selection, please be sure to contact your child’s school counselor.

6. Please mark your calendars that final exams for seniors will begin on Thursday, June 2nd and will conclude on Tuesday, June 7th. Underclassmen final exams will begin on Tuesday, June 7th and will conclude on Friday, June 10th. A more detailed schedule will be forthcoming.

7. Please note that AP Exams will take place between Monday, May 2nd and Friday, May 13th, while Keystone Exams are scheduled for Monday, May 16ththrough Friday, May 27th.

8. Spring Break will take place Monday, April 11th through Friday, April 15th.

9. Our next PTSO meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 8th at 6:00 PM. This will be a virtual meeting, and the links will be sent the morning of the meeting.

That is all for today! I hope everyone has a restful and relaxing weekend!

Sincerely,

Principal’s Message 1.21.22

Happy Friday KHS Families,

I hope everyone had a great week and is looking forward to a restful and relaxing weekend. A new beginning is upon us, as we will start the second semester on Tuesday, January 25th. This signals the halfway point of the school year, and it is exciting because of the many fun events we have to look forward to, such as Mini-THON, Prom, Senior Stroll, and Graduation. Please continue to encourage your children to focus on doing their best in the classroom to maximize their opportunities.

As we wrap up the week, here are a few notes, updates, and reminders:

1. Monday, January 24th is the final day of the second marking period. The third marking period and second semester begin Tuesday, January 25th. Please remind students to arrive to school on time everyday. Students that arrive to school late will receive an initial warning and then be issued restorative sessions to counter the behavior. 

2. There will be no school for students on Monday, February 21st.

3. Please note that students are not permitted to have food delivered to the school (e.g., Door Dash). Any food delivery attempt will be refused.

4. Course selection will begin soon, and the new Educational Planning Guide will be shared with students and families electronically sometime next week. A hard copy of the planning guide will be available for all students the first week of February.

5. Please remind your students to check their emails multiple times a school day. Important information is consistently shared with students via email, so it is important for them to check it frequently.

6. If your child is interested in participating in upcoming Principal/Student Roundtables, please have them contact me at jhritz@kcsd.org, and I will be sure to include them.

7. Our next PTSO Meeting (virtual) is Tuesday, February 8th at 6:00 PM.

That is all for today! Have an awesome weekend!

Principal’s Message 1.14.22

Happy Friday KHS Families!

I hope everyone has had a great week! The days continue to fly by, and we are even closer to the end of the first semester, which is Monday, January 24th. As we approach the conclusion of the semester, please encourage your children to finish on a strong and positive note. Talk with them about making up any missing assignments/assessments, studying and preparing for any approaching exams, and asking their teachers for help. Additionally, please encourage them to take advantage of their Flex periods which are designed to allow for extra help from their teachers during the school day. I am looking forward to seeing the results of our students’ efforts at the end of the semester as indicated by their course grades!

As we finish up this Friday, I wanted to share a few news, notes, and updates:

1. There is no school on Monday, January 17th.

2. The first semester and second marking period conclude on Monday, January 24th. The second semester and third marking period begin on Tuesday, January 25th. The third marking period will conclude on Tuesday, March 29th.

3. Course selection for the 2022-2023 school year will soon begin, so please be on the lookout for more information coming your way from your teachers and counselors. Teachers will be making recommendations about which courses students should take next year, so it is important that they talk with them about their goals. Also, we will have a variety of new electives we will be offering next year including The History of Kennett Square, Food and Farm: An Introduction to Agriculture, Media in the Digital Age, and several others. All of these courses will be detailed in the new edition of the Educational Planning Guide which will be published soon. We are excited to provide a series of new courses for students to choose next school year!

4. Also, when thinking about course selection for next year, students may also want to consider Dual Enrollment courses. Dual Enrollment courses are college courses students can take to not only earn college credit, but also high school credit. Partnerships with Delaware County Community College, University of Delaware, and West Chester University are in place just to name a few. If your child is interested in these opportunities, please have them reach out to their school counselor.

5. Families of seniors, next Wednesday and Thursday, I will be meeting with all 12th grade students in small groups to discuss the second half of the school year, upcoming events, and expectations. I am encouraging them to reach out to me in advance if they have any questions they’d like me to address in the meeting. Please encourage them to do so I can clarify any questions they may have.

6. Next Tuesday, January 18th at 6:00 PM, we will have our next PTSO meeting virtually. The link for the meeting will be sent out the morning of the 18th. I hope to see you there!

That is all for today! Have a great weekend!

Sincerely,

Jeremy Hritz, Ed.D.

As we wrap up our first week after returning from winter break, I wanted to share a few notes, reminders, and updates. Please take a few moment to carefully read through this email to ensure your students are prepared for upcoming dates and events.

1. The second marking period and first semester will conclude on Monday, January 24th. The second semester and third marking period will begin on Tuesday, January 25th. Students who have semester course(s) will be taking a cumulative exam, and information regarding this assessment will be shared with them by their teachers. There are only 10 school days remaining in the marking period, so it is more important than ever for our students to study, complete their work, and make up any missing assignments. Please encourage your child to utilize their Flex periods to get additional assistance from their teachers and to make up any assessment(s)/assignment(s) that is/are outstanding. I want all of our students to finish the marking period on a strong, positive note so they can carry that momentum into the second half of the year.

2. Course selection for the 2022-2023 school year will soon begin, so please be on the lookout for more information. Teachers will be making recommendations about which courses students should take next year, so it is important that your students talk with them about their goals. Also, we will have a variety of new electives we will be offering next year including The History of Kennett Square, Farm to Table: An Introduction to Agriculture, Media Literacy in the Digital Age, and several others. All of these courses will be detailed in the new edition of the Educational Planning Guide which will be published soon. We are excited to provide a series of new courses for our students to choose next school year!

3. Families of Junior students, please be reminded of the Mock Interview they must complete before the end of January. Junior students will complete this interview during a Flex period with a KHS staff member. For more information, please contact Dr. Tamargo at atamargo@kcsd.org. Remember, failure to complete the Mock Interview and the requirements for the graduation project could prevent students from attending prom, obtaining a senior parking spot, or participating in senior option next school year.

4. A general reminder to all families during the winter season, please remind your students to take their laptops home with them every day to ensure they are prepared for any potential virtual learning days. Additionally, students should bring their laptops with them to class every day in the event they are needed for in-class activities.

5. Please be advised that all COVID mitigation efforts are still in effect. To ensure the safety of everyone in the building, please reinforce with your child(ren) the importance of wearing their facemask properly over their nose, frequently washing their hands and using hand sanitizer, and staying home from school if they are not feeling well. We all have a responsibility for the safety and health of everyone in our building, and I appreciate your support of these expectations.

6. The Kennett Consolidated School District is temporarily adjusting their indoor sporting event guidance for spectators beginning on January 3rd until further notice. The only spectators that will be admitted into the contests (basketball and wrestling) at all the secondary schools (Kennett High School and Kennett Middle School) will be the home and visitor players and cheerleaders, and immediate family members (parents, grandparents, guardians, and siblings). KCSD will not be allowing student sections at all during this time.

Spectators are required to wear masks properly and socially distance while attending these contests. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our student-athletes as we attempt to give them a complete winter season.

7. There will be no school on Monday, January 17th.

8. The end of the 3rd marking period will be Tuesday, March 29th.

That is for today! Have a great weekend!

Thank you,

Jeremy Hritz, Ed.D.

Al concluir nuestra primera semana después de regresar de las vacaciones de invierno, quería compartir algunas notas, recordatorios y actualizaciones. Tómese un momento para leer detenidamente este correo electrónico para asegurarse de que sus estudiantes estén preparados para las próximas fechas y eventos.

1. El segundo período de calificaciones y el primer semestre concluirán el lunes 24 de enero th . El segundo semestre y el tercer período de calificaciones comenzarán el martes 25 de enero. th . Los estudiantes que tengan cursos semestrales tomarán un examen acumulativo y sus maestros compartirán la información sobre esta evaluación con ellos. Solo quedan 10 días escolares en el período de calificaciones, por lo que es más importante que nunca que nuestros estudiantes estudien, completen su trabajo y recuperen las asignaciones faltantes. Anime a su hijo a utilizar sus períodos Flex para obtener ayuda adicional de sus maestros y para recuperar cualquier evaluación / tarea que sea sobresaliente. Quiero que todos nuestros estudiantes terminen el período de calificaciones con una nota fuerte y positiva para que puedan llevar ese impulso a la segunda mitad del año.

2. La selección de cursos para el año escolar 2022-2023 comenzará pronto, así que esté atento para obtener más información. Los maestros harán recomendaciones sobre los cursos que los estudiantes deben tomar el próximo año, por lo que es importante que sus estudiantes los acompañen sobre sus objetivos. Además, tendremos una variedad de nuevas asignaturas optativas que ofreceremos el próximo año, que incluyen La historia de Kennett Square, De la granja a la mesa: Introducción a la agricultura, Alfabetización mediática en la era digital y muchas otras. Todos estos cursos se detallarán en la nueva edición de la Guía de Planificación Educativa que se publicará próximamente. ¡Estamos emocionados de ofrecer una serie de cursos nuevos para que nuestros estudiantes elijan el próximo año escolar!

3. Familias de estudiantes junior, recuerden la entrevista simulada que deben completar antes de fines de enero. Los estudiantes de tercer año completarán esta entrevista durante un período flexible con un miembro del personal de KHS. Para obtener más información, comuníquese con el Dr. Tamargo al atamargo@kcsd.org . Recuerde, no completar la entrevista simulada y los requisitos para el proyecto de graduación podría impedir que los estudiantes asistan al baile de graduación, obtengan un lugar de estacionamiento para estudiantes de último año o participen en la opción de estudiantes de último año el próximo año escolar.

4. Un recordatorio general para todas las familias durante la temporada de invierno, por favor recuerde a sus estudiantes que se lleven sus computadoras portátiles a casa todos los días para asegurarse de que estén preparados para los posibles días de aprendizaje virtual. Además, los estudiantes deben traer sus computadoras portátiles a clase todos los días en caso de que las necesiten para las actividades de la clase.

5. Tenga en cuenta que todos los esfuerzos de mitigación de COVID aún están vigentes. Para garantizar la seguridad de todos en el edificio, refuerce con su(s) hijo(s) la importancia de usar la mascarilla sobre la nariz correctamente, lavarse las manos con frecuencia y usar desinfectante para manos, y quedarse en casa y no ir a la escuela si no se sienten bien. Todos tenemos la responsabilidad de la seguridad y la salud de todos en nuestro edificio, y agradezco su apoyo a estas expectativas.

6. El Distrito Escolar Consolidado de Kennett está ajustando temporalmente su guía de eventos deportivos bajo techo para espectadores a partir del 3 de enero hasta nuevo aviso. Los únicos espectadores que serán admitidos en los concursos (baloncesto y lucha libre) en todas las escuelas secundarias (Kennett High School y Kennett Middle School) serán los jugadores y porristas locales y visitantes, y los miembros de la familia inmediata (padres, abuelos, tutores, y hermanos). KCSD no permitirá secciones de estudiantes durante este tiempo.

Se requiere que los espectadores usen máscaras de manera adecuada y mantengan la distancia social mientras asisten a estos concursos. Nuestra principal preocupación es la salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes-atletas mientras intentamos brindarles una temporada de invierno completa.

7. No habrá clases el lunes 17 de enero. el .

8. El final de los 3 rd el período de calificaciones será el martes 29 de marzo el .

¡Eso es por hoy! ¡Ten un excelente fin de semana!

Gracias,

Jeremy Hritz, Ed.D.

Happy Holidays KHS Families!-Family Update

As we prepare for holiday break, I want to wish all of you a healthy and happy holiday season with your family and friends! I am appreciative for your support of Kennett High School, and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with your children! Please enjoy this time, and here’s to an amazing year in 2022!

As we wrap up our last day of school in 2021, I wanted to share a few notes, updates, and reminders:

1. Winter Break is scheduled from Thursday, December 23rd through Sunday, January 2nd. We will return to school on Monday, January 3rd.

2. There is no school for students on Monday, January 17th.

3. Our juniors are in the process of preparing for their mock interviews with KHS staff, which will be scheduled in the month of January. KHS staff will be contacting students via email to set up a date and time for the mock interviews. On Tuesday, we reviewed the process of the mock interview with the junior class and provided them with resources via Schoology to help them prepare. The mock interview is part of the KHS graduation project. If you have questions regarding the interview for the graduation project, please contact Dr. Tamargo at atamargo@kcsd.org. Students must complete their mock interviews by the end of January, and the graduation project itself must be complete by March 25th. Students who do not complete their graduation project by this date could be ineligible for Senior Option, Senior Parking Spots, and/or Prom. Additionally, please note that the volunteer hour requirement for graduation project is 20 hours.

4. Please reinforce the importance of arriving to school and to class on time to your students. Repetitive tardiness disrupts student learning and is harmful to academic performance. Beginning in January, students who are habitually late will be assigned After School Restorative Sessions from 2:45 – 4:30 pm which are designed to help students change their behaviors and arrive to school and to class on time. Transportation is provided for these sessions.

5. Please be mindful that the second marking period will conclude on Monday, January 24th. Please be sure to encourage your students to finish strong and to take advantage of their Flex periods to get assistance from their teachers. Also, please note there will be no grade or credit recovery this school year. Students who do not earn the necessary credits for promotion to the next grade will have to take summer school courses.

7. Course selection will begin near the end of January, so please be on the lookout for information soon regarding this process.

8. 8th Grade Parent Night is scheduled for Tuesday, January 25th at 6:00 pm in the Kennett High School Auditorium. This session is designed to educate families about the transition from KMS to KHS, including course selection, extracurricular activities, and graduation requirements.

9. Finally, I have been meeting with all grade levels in small group meetings, and I am nearly finished meeting with the entire junior class. Upon our return from winter break, I will be meeting with the senior class. In these meetings, I am sharing the priorities and expectations for our students that will help them achieve success. I have included these expectations in this email, and I ask that you review them with your students.

Please note that progress reports for students are now available for access in Skyward.

Happy Monday KHS Families!

The first week of November has concluded, and we are now only 2 school days away from the end of the first marking period. Please continue to encourage your child(ren) to connect with their teachers for support to ensure they finish the quarter on a positive note.

Here are a few quick updates:

  1. Thanksgiving Break is scheduled for students Wednesday, November 24th through Friday, November 26th. This break is a day longer than it typically has been in the past. We are looking forward to our students and their families getting time to spend with each other over this holiday, and we are encouraging our students to completely disconnect from school during this time. It is important for our students to be fully present with their families, so they can be rested and recharged upon their return on the 29th.
  2. The second marking period will begin on November 10th and will conclude on January 24th. There will be no midterm exams this school year. All students will be required to complete a cumulative final exam for all of their courses in June.
  3. Our next KHS PTSO Meeting (virtual) is scheduled for Monday, November 22nd at 6:00 PM. In this meeting, we will begin discussing course selection for next school year, in addition to providing updates on our Career Pathways program. We hope you can join us!

  10. Families, please see these reminders from our nurse’s office: Just a reminder that students are to wear a mask inside of the school building every day. Please make sure your students are coming prepared with masks to school, and if they can have a spare on hand, that would be a big help. Additionally, if you have not returned your child’s emergency card to the nurse’s office, please do so as soon as possible.
  11. Families, please remind your students to check their school emails at least twice a day to ensure they are aware of important school information. Additionally, students should arrive at school with their laptops fully charged for their classes.

  13. Just a reminder that our school day begins at 7:40am and that our students are expected to be in their classroom by 7:40am. Please make sure that your student arrives with enough time so that your student is not marked late, and miss out on important opening announcements and instructional time.
  14. The Kennett Education Foundation has an amazing leadership opportunity for students! We are looking for three individuals who are interested in becoming student board members for the Kennett Education Foundation. This esteemed position would help committees, support board initiatives and help spread awareness about the Kennett Education Foundation to fellow students and teachers.
