A Message from Our Principal

Dear Kings Ridge Families, 

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I hope that your summer was safe and that you were able to enjoy time with your family. I am thrilled to welcome our students and families back to campus for what is sure to be an exceptional school year!

First, let me reassure you that the health and safety of our students is our top priority. With this in mind, you can expect to see some additional safety protocols in place around campus. We will also continue with our enhanced health precautions in place such as increased hand sanitizer availability and handwashing, touchless faucets in every classroom, and increased cleaning of high touch areas. Masks will be available for students if they would like one; however, they will not be mandatory as we start the year. Mask use guidelines are subject to change following recommendations of the CDC and Arizona Department of Public Health.

Now, more than ever before, it is imperative that we each do our part to ensure that our students and families follow all health and safety procedures and look out for one another to keep Kings Ridge a safe school conducive to learning, achievement, and success for our students. 

School will begin on July 25 for all students following our regular schedule of five days a week, with many Wednesdays being an early release day. Please be sure to familiarize your family with the district calendar of important dates.

Here are some exciting events for the start of the school year:

  • July 21 - Meet the Teacher Night from 4:00–6:00 p.m.
  • July 21 - Rapido Screen Printing onsite for uniform shirt sale from 4:00–6:00 p.m.
  • July 25 - First day of school!
  • July 26 and 28 - Rapido Screen Printing onsite for uniform shirt sale from 2:30–4:30 p.m.
  • July 29 - School pictures for 5th–8th grades.

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 at Meet the Teacher. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello, and join us for one of our many campus-wide events. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all Kings Ridge students.
