Dear Kinney Families,


    It is with great excitement that I join the Kinney family as your new principal. I look forward to building relationships with each one of you as we move through the year. I come to Kinney with quite a bit of experience working with alternative education students. Most recently, I was the principal of King High Continuation School in Davis and also the Davis School for Independent Study. My passion is working with this student population and seeing them overcome significant obstacles and being successful and happy.


    I like to say that just because we choose a different path, does not mean we are lost and I find that very relevant in alternative education. I have an open door and welcome you to stop by and introduce yourself. I am open to your feedback and suggestions and want to thank you in advance for sharing your children with us. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to nurture and challenge them.


    I urge you to review your student handbooks and request one if needed. Clear expectations are outlined in this handbook. It is a great resource as we move through the year.


    Please mark your calendars as the first day of school is fast approaching. Be sure to visit the school website and follow the instructions to register prior to the first day of school. Students are to return to school on MONDAY, August 13th. School starts promptly at 9:00 but students are urged to arrive on time to see the posted first period classes. Students will then receive their schedules in first period.  The back to school assemblies will be held Thursday, August 16th. Finally, we hope you all join us for Back to School Night on August 30th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.


    Wishing you all a fantastic school year! I look forward to being a part of such a special school.
