I am extremely thankful and grateful that you share your child(ren) with us, and I am so thankful to have such supportive families. I hope you have a nice week off to reconnect as a family. I hope you can snuggle, read stories, and play some games together. By now, I am sure that you have heard the news that KH K-8 is moving to a hybrid schedule (except for our K-Knights, ASD, and MiCI programs). You all are to be commended for the efforts you have made to keep our students safe. KHPS can celebrate that we have done better than a majority of other schools in the county. There is only one other district that has not had to close on some scale, shut down a school or take other alternative measures. We can be proud that we have been open for full face to face learning for almost three months.Read More
COVID reminders & re-cap from last week:
Supt. Hopkins is committed to honoring our Continuity of Learning Plan to stay open, offering in-person and virtual learning, while hoping that the cases start to decrease. However, if this does not happen, then we have to prepare and say, “what if they don’t stop increasing?” Please be assured, we’ll keep you posted with any changes that become necessary.
We have had zero student-to-student, staff-to-staff, or staff-to-student cases. What we are doing is working, but we still need your help to continue on this trend. Here’s what I’m asking you to do:
1. If you are sick or experiencing symptoms, please stay home. We can always have the nurse call you to assess the situation.
2. Stay home until you are 24 hours symptom free, without medication.
3. If you suspect that you have been exposed to someone that is COVID positive, please stay home and call the school nurse for further directions.
4. Socially distance and wear masks whenever possible. Try to remain in your family cohort as much as possible.
5. Continue to do the daily screener. It is working!
6. A big area of improvement is mask wearing on the bus. Many of them still like to slip their mask off or under their nose. If we have to contact trace, we do consider if a child has a mask on/off, so please go over this at home. I hate quarantine kiddos when it could have been prevented by just wearing a mask correctly.
Thank you! Together, we can get through this. Central SHINES!

Dear Central Families,
Let’s start with the elephant in the room. What will happen if COVID cases continue to increase? I know that Supt. Hopkins (as well as all KH Administration) is committed to honoring our Continuity of Learning Plan to stay open, offering in-person and virtual learning, while hoping that the cases start to decrease. However, if this does not happen, then we have to prepare and say, “what if they don’t stop increasing?”
Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
