Principal Kinder

Dear King Family,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

As I enter a new role of Director of Alternative & Adult Education, I will continue to remain Principal of King. My heart lies in alternative ed and my hope is that this new role will open more doors and opportunities for our King students.

Our goal, as always, is to help all students reach their own goals. King is special because we have the flexibility, resources, expertise, and compassion to allow all students to find success. We enter this year with a focus on prioritizing the “3 P’s”: students and staff will be
Present, Positive, Productive!

Schedule: King High is offering full in-person instruction with our regular daily schedule of AM students attending 8:30-11:30 a.m, and PM students attending 12:30-3:30 p.m., five days a week. Students will be assigned to AM or PM scheduled based on the classes they need. If a student has a strong preference for AM or PM session, we will try to accommodate that, but may require verification of the need (i.e. proof of a current work schedule). Students may make a schedule request on the form linked at the end of this letter, or by talking to their Advisor.

Technology: Students who need access to their own device may check out a DJUSD Chromebook for use at home. Chromebook checkout will likely occur at King during the first few weeks of school. We also have Chromebooks available at King for student use during the day.  We will continue to utilize Canvas for class home pages and most assignments, so that students will have access to homework options at any time. Students will review their digital Credit Card with advisors every Monday to see their progress each week. Parents/guardians may request access to view their student’s Credit Card.

Let's have a great year!
