Being in class every day is very important to student success and sense of continuity. If you think missing a class or day here and there doesn’t have an impact, take a look at the research below. Attendance is a major key to academic success so please make every effort to ensure students are at school every day.
Students who receive off campus privileges will have those privileges revoked if they do not attend school regularly. Attendance checks will occur at progress report time and at the end of every quarter. If a student is deemed chronically absent; missing 10% or more of school, they will lose off campus privileges until the next attendance check. Students who do not have off campus privileges, typically students under the age of 16 (sophomore/freshmen), will receive school consequences, parent notification and possible referral to truancy court.
Safety is first at KWHS and we have taken several steps to ensure our campus is safe. Our SRO, Officer Del Cid, is on campus from start to finish of each school day with additional officers on campus during lunch. The extra police are there to build relationships, mentor the students and help to maintain a safe environment. Staff are throughout the campus at supervision stations during the day and we ask all visitors to check in at the office for clearance. The gates on campus are locked at 7:45 and reopened before school is out with the front gate the main entrance point. Students have been through an Active Threat presentation to help them make decisions should they ever face such a situation at school or anywhere. This presentation is available for viewing by parents on our website. We have practiced fire drills and lock down drills as well as spent a day dedicated to character education lessons, all in an effort to promote a healthy, positive, safe environment for our students to be their best. Our See Something, Say Something campaign urges students to tell an adult on campus if they hear, see or suspect something that is suspicious, doesn’t seem right or if they are concerned about a person’s well-being.
