Principal's Message: October 28th

Raider Nation, 

On Friday, November 6th at 0700 I will be hosting our first Coffee with the Principal of the school year, we shall call it "Java with Jason". I'll use this opportunity to share with you who I am as an educator. We'll also have an opportunity to share some of the programs we have in place to support our students. Due to COVID restrictions it will be a BYOCoffee event, and we are asking for parents to RSVP. FOLLOW ME FOR RSVP

Emma Williams from our Yearbook team writes, "Yearbooks are starting to be sold and you won't want to miss your chance to get this year's special yearbook. It's a year that you don't want to forget with all the rapid changes and the pandemic. The purpose of a yearbook is to remember the time you had at school and the people with whom you spent time. This is a year that you will want to share with people years down the road. With this year's fun and unique theme, you will surely want to get a yearbook to recall the times you had! To order a yearbook check out Balfour.com or see Ms. Arnold in D1. There are extra packages you can see online at Balfour.com!" Information may be found at RAIDER NEWS

Important Updates for this week, details can be found at our RAIDER NEWS page:

1. We have confirmation that Winter Sports (Basketball, Wrestling, and Cheer) have been canceled out of an abundance of caution. Marksmanship will continue as always. See our RAIDER NEWS page for more details.

3. WE have tons of clubs that are offered here at KHS that our students may be interested in, Check our RAIDER NEWS for details. 

4. Grade Speed is a great resource for our community, as it allows students and parents to monitor grades on a weekly basis. Check our RAIDER NEWS for details.
