    Dear KHS Student:

    Welcome to Kirkwood High School. Whether you are a new or returning student, the beginning of each school year is an opportunity to reflect upon personal goals and actions. Take this time to assess your academic progress and your involvement in extra-curricular activities. Success results from intention, purposeful direction, and wise decision-making. Our seniors will provide positive leadership as we have another great year at Kirkwood High School.

    We have an outstanding staff at KHS that will continue to guide our students through their academic journey and support you as you work towards your goals. Each one of you has the potential to be an excellent student and a person of good character. It is our hope that you follow your passion and take advantage of our diverse learning and extra-curricular offerings.

    Students are to pick up schedules and important school information during the “Back to School and Schedule Pick Up Days” on July 31st and August 1st. We urge parents and students to read and review all information provided in order to be prepared for the beginning of school. Back to school information and forms can be found on the KHS website.

    This year, orientation day for freshmen and students who are new to KHS will be held on August 12th, from 7:50 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We will begin promptly at 7:50 a.m. The freshmen will meet in the Keating Theater with an assembly presented by the administrative staff. At the conclusion of this assembly, freshmen students will attend activities hosted by the KHS Link Crew. The orientation day for freshmen will also consist of a tour of the campus and lunch provided by the school. The new 10th, 11th and 12th grade students will meet in the library. KHS Link Crew will provide new 10th, 11th and 12th grade students a tour of the school. The 10th, 11th and 12th grade students will be finished by 9:30 a.m. on this day.

    The first day of school for all students will be on August 15, 2019. We begin at 7:50 a.m. and students will attend all seven periods for this first week. We encourage all students to arrive on time and ready to learn.

    Remember that KHS band practices begin on July 29th and fall sports practices begin on August 12th. We look forward to seeing you in August. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
