A Message from Our Principal

Dear Kings Ridge Families, 

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I hope that your summer was safe and that you were able to enjoy time with your family. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.

First, let me thank you for your support and understanding as we responded to the unexpected COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. I am very proud of the way our KRPA students, parents, employees, and community leaders handled the pandemic with an emphasis on safety and the protection of all as we continued to educate and feed our students during the most unusual of circumstances. We can’t wait to move on to the next phase of learning, and we know that all students at Kings Ridge will be welcomed with open arms (from six feet away) to our community, we will continue to grow! 

We plan to return to in-person learning on-campus following our regular schedule of five days a week, with Wednesdays as an early release day. We will continue with enhanced safety precautions in places such as increased hand sanitizer and hand washing, no-touch faucets in every classroom along with water bottle filling stations, and increased frequency of cleaning of high-touch areas. If your family requires your student to continue online, distance learning please contact our front office as we will gladly set your student up for success with that option. 

Thank you to all for helping to prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that Kings Ridge remains a celebrated and successful school is inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello or join us for our monthly Donuts with Grownups every third Thursday of the month at 9:00 a.m. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all Kings Ridge students.
