Letter from KHS Principal Phil Johnson

Dear Parent and Guardians,

Kodiak High School has experienced a wonderful start to the 2013-2014 school year. I can’t begin to express how amazed I am at the quality of our student body. With approximately 780 students enrolled in a school that is under construction, one might expect a less than positive school climate. I’m extremely pleased to share that our current climate is extremely positive. As I walk through our hallways I am reminded daily why I entered education twenty-to years ago. I can’t say enough about how wonderful it’s been working with your children.

Kodiak High School faculty and staff deserve tremendous credit for creating, and sustaining, an environment that is positively student-centered. I’m very impressed with the level of professionalism that exists within this building. I wish to also draw special attention to the administrative support staff, Kari Marsh, Edwina Horn, and Amy Willis. This administrative team has done an incredible job ensuring that school related processes flow smoothly. The level of their support is beyond measure!

I would be remiss if I didn’t also recognize our Guidance Department. Special thanks to Karen Winkler, Yvonne Cleary, Sue Blott, and Karen Stephen for the incredible amount of work they do, daily, on behalf of our students. The counselors carried the day (actually the first tow weeks) for students who were new to the Island as well as those seeking adjustments to their existing schedule.

Hats off to KHS’ Student Council as well. Not only do they, in coordination with Mr. Bieber, keep us updated with daily broadcasts with are now streamed Monday through Thursday at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/kodiak-‐schools,  they also managed to pull off one of the most inspirational assemblies I’ve ever attended. On Friday, August 30th, Ted Wiese (www.HearTedTalk.com) spoke to students about how important it is to be #2. As your child what that’s all about. A very special “Thank You” to Student Council Advisers Lindsey Glenn and Elizabeth Bender for their management and organization of this event!!

Extra-curricular activities are well underway at KHS. Cross Country, Swimming and Diving, Tennis, Football, Cheerleading, Dance, and Volleyball are wither practicing or have already engaged in competition. Last weekend Kodiak hosted events in Swimming and Diving, Football, and Cross Country. Additionally, our Music Program, led by Dale Lhotka, Laura Blackwood and Rachael Lanigan, is in full swing. Please plan on attending the Fall Choir Concert, October 22nd, followed by the Fall Orchestra Concert, October 29th.

Tuesday September 10th, from 5:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M., KHS will be hosting an Open House. In previous years a bell schedule would dictate classroom visitation times.  This year we’re opting to discontinue that process and, instead, afford parents the opportunity to move freely about KHS and visit classrooms at their own pace. Please remember that this is a time to meet your student’s teachers but is not a time to hold a parent-teacher conference. Should you wish to visit your teacher in parent-teacher conference format, please schedule that separately as there are a number of parents who wish to meet their student’s teacher and we want to ensure that all have that opportunity.

KHS will also be providing on-site PowerSchool support during Open House. This year all parents must create a new PowerSchool account. KHS intends to support you in that process and will have laptops setup in Commons A and B for those who wish to create their accounts during Open House. KHS counseling staff will be available to guide parents through the process. Though I recognize the inconvenience in recreating your PowerSchool account, for those families who have more than one child, this new account will allow you to view all your children District-wide using a single user login.

Policies and Procedures to be aware of:

  1. Cell Phones: We do allow cell phones at school.  Students and staff understand there is a time and a place for using cell phones in the classroom.  Cell phones can be used as a calculator, to research the internet, to record or video lectures, take notes, take photos, complete surveys, social networking for class related information with students in other schools far away.  Cell phones cannot be used unless the teacher has given the student permission to use the cell phone.  Students who abuse the cell-phone policy will have their cell phones taken away. PLEASE REMEMBER WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR STUDENTS LOSING THEIR ELECTRONIC DEVICES.  JUST LIKE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL – IF YOU BRING YOUR TOYS TO SCHOOL YOU ARE AT RISK OF LOSING THEM AND THE SCHOOL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE ;-)
  2. Attendance/Tardies:  Class attendance is essential to the learning process.  Absenteeism disrupts and hinders that process for the student and the student’s classmates.   Please do not call and excuse your child when he/she has knowingly skipped a class and is truant.  A student who misses 15 days could be denied credit for the course depending on the reason for the excessive absences.  Any student missing 10 days in a row will be dropped from the attendance roll.  The student can be re-enrolled after a meeting with the student and parent(s) or legal guardian.  A student will be considered tardy if he/she is not in the classroom when the tardy bell rings.  A tardy can result in a detention.
  3. Technology Use:  Before students are allowed to use any technology they must have all the KIBSD Student Acceptable Use Policy Agreement and Laptop Agreement form signed and on file in the office.
  4. Theft:  Theft, possession, or use of stolen property are prohibited and will result in disciplinary action and notification of the Kodiak Police Department.
  5. Dress Code: Any clothing that is deemed offensive, promotes alcohol/drug use, displays sexually explicit pictures, profanity, or which is (or which purports to be) gang affiliated is prohibited.  Clothing with revealing holes, cuts or tears, and or safety pins is considered inappropriate.  Regular fit pants should be worn at the waist – undergarments and midriff while standing should not be visible.
  6. Building Hours: KHS is open for classes at 8:30 a.m. and students are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. M-Th, 2:25 p.m. on Friday's.  Any student remaining in the building after school must be supervised by a member of the faculty/staff and/or approved sponsor. 

All freshman and sophomore students will receive copies of the KHS handbook complete with KHS policies/procedures, calendar of events, and personal organizer.  In addition the KHS handbook is on our website.
