Principal Kinder

Dear King Family,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!

Thank you for the warm welcome to King. While this is my 1st year as King Principal, I have been Principal in DJUSD for over 5 years and 10 years overall. Being at both the Davis School for Independent Study (DSIS) and King means I manage ALL alternative programs in the district. My hope is that this will allow for a partnership of programs that results in more opportunities for all DJUSD students.

The King team is excited to see our students in-person this year, and we are committed to making school safe and engaging. 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.
