Good Evening Members of our KCHS FAMILY,
This is Dale Kevin Brown I, Principal of KCHS.
The faculty, staff and administration of KCHS are committed in maintaining a safe and orderly environment conducive to learning for Our CHILDREN. We will always provide you with transparent, timely and accurate information as soon as we are permitted to share this sensitive information.
Please be assured that we take all threats to the safety and welfare of Our CHILDREN, faculty and staff very seriously. Extensive security measures are in place in an attempt to maintain a safe school campus. I want to inform you of an incident that occurred today at KCHS. We received confidential information that a county employee, who is not assigned to KCHS, was placed on leave for exhibiting questionable behaviors. This Employee displayed his county issued identification badge and entered KCHS. He was immediately stopped and asked to exit the building. Our KCHS SRO was contacted and he immediately notified the Kent County Sheriffs Office. Kent County Sheriff Deputies apprehended the aforementioned employee within minutes after he left the property of KCHS and will be charged with numerous felony charges including possession of a deadly weapon on school property.
As parents you can be of great assistance. Please take this opportunity to speak with your CHILD about the importance of school safety. Peer pressure is extremely intense at this age, however, we want to encourage CHILDREN to feel comfortable reporting to school administrators any information they may have that could potentially compromise their safety and the safety of others. Working cooperatively and collaboratively we can heighten the probability of maintaining a safe and orderly environment where all CHILDREN are free to focus on learning.
Please be assured that the safety and welfare of Our CHILDREN, faculty and staff is our highest priority as we provide the best services available for Our Most Valuable Resource-CHILDREN.
Our KCHS Back To School Night previously scheduled for tomorrow night, Thursday, September 5th will be cancelled due to a technology issue with our notification system. Our Back To School Night will be rescheduled and advance notification will be sent to you.
