Being in class every day is very important to student success and sense of continuity. If you think missing a class or day here and there doesn’t have an impact, take a look at the research below. Attendance is a major key to academic success so please make every effort to ensure students are at school every day.
Parents/Guardians: If you feel your student(s) may qualify for either free or reduced priced meals, please go to www.keysschools.com and click on the "Free and Reduced Meal Application" tab on the left-hand side of the main page. This will direct you to the online application portal. Students who qualified for free or reduced priced meals last year will lose their status on September 25th unless a new application is submitted and approved. Parents/guardians can manage money on their students' accounts by going to the Food Services page on the website (under Resources-Parents) and click on the "Student Meal Payments" tab. Please contact your school's Cafeteria Manager if you have any questions. Thank you! Monroe County School District Food Services
Our school mission is to prepare students to be career or college ready. We provide exposure to possibilities in both areas in several ways. For colleges, College Day will be Oct. 28 from 8:30-10:30 am and more information is forthcoming. We also celebrate National College Colors Day. NATIONAL COLLEGE COLORS DAY – WEAR YOURS ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 30 The Friday before Labor Day across the United States students, parents, family, fans and alumni display their team spirit on National College Colors Day. This day is celebrated annually by wearing your college team’s colors and college or university apparel. Support your team and show your team spirit by wearing your college colors to the game or while watching it on TV. Rally the fans and show your team you know they will go for the win! Tailgating and pregame revelry are all part of the enjoyment of the season. Many alumni enjoy share memories of games from years past, especially the close ones, win or lose. HOW TO OBSERVE Wear your college colors; share your stories. Use #CollegeColorsDay to post on social media and spread the wor
Students who receive off campus privileges will have those privileges revoked if they do not attend school regularly. Attendance checks will occur at progress report time and at the end of every quarter. If a student is deemed chronically absent; missing 10% or more of school, they will lose off campus privileges until the next attendance check. Students who do not have off campus privileges, typically students under the age of 16 (sophomore/freshmen), will receive school consequences, parent notification and possible referral to truancy court.
Former students, friends and colleagues of Greg Kremer, long time instructor and icon at KWHS, would like to honor his memory by providing a scholarship at class night. He touched the lives of many students and staff alike. We have opened a scholarship in his name at KWHS and anyone who would like to contribute can make a donation to Key West High School here with a credit/debit through SchoolPay (at the link https://www.schoolpay.com/link/gregkremerscholarship) or via a check dropped off and made out to Key West High School with "Greg Kremer Scholarship" in the memo line. A group of his collegial educators will make the selection this year, recognizing a student who had a passion for education, sports and adventure, those things that inspired Greg throughout his life. Please help us honor the legacy of a tremendous coach, educator, and friend.
Safety is first at KWHS and we have taken several steps to ensure our campus is safe. Our SRO, Officer Del Cid, is on campus from start to finish of each school day with additional officers on campus during lunch. The extra police are there to build relationships, mentor the students and help to maintain a safe environment. Staff are throughout the campus at supervision stations during the day and we ask all visitors to check in at the office for clearance. The gates on campus are locked at 7:45 and reopened before school is out with the front gate the main entrance point. Students have been through an Active Threat presentation to help them make decisions should they ever face such a situation at school or anywhere. This presentation is available for viewing by parents on our website. We have practiced fire drills and lock down drills as well as spent a day dedicated to character education lessons, all in an effort to promote a healthy, positive, safe environment for our students to be their best. Our See Something, Say Something campaign urges students to tell an adult on campus if they hear, see or suspect something that is suspicious, doesn’t seem right or if they are concerned about a person’s well-being. The Text Tip number for anonymous reporting is 305-432-3311.
Students were part of an Active Threat presentation provided by teachers on Friday. The information is part of our safety protocols and the presentation elicited awareness and informative conversations about what students and staff should do if there were to be an active threat on campus.
