Welcome to King's Fork!  A message from our Principal, Mr. Derrick Bryant

Bulldog Family,

I hope you all have enjoyed your extended summer break! I want to commend everyone for their flexibility, adaptability, and understanding during this unexpected global health crisis.  The health and safety of our students, staff, and families is of the utmost importance while we face the many uncertainties and challenges the pandemic has thrust upon us. 

As you are all aware, the COVID-19 pandemic situation is fluid and continues to change. Throughout the academic year, we anticipate moving from virtual learning to a hybrid model and ending with our traditional face-to-face model.  Fingers crossed!  With any of these models, it is going to be very important that you put forth your best effort.  However, during the first nine weeks (the virtual model), you will need to attend your scheduled classes regularly and turn in your assignments on time.  All of your work will be delivered through the Canvas platform.  In order to access Canvas, you will need to sign in with your Google credentials.  You can find detailed instructions on how to access Canvas on the school website.  

This year promises to be challenging, yet exciting. You will be able to continue to demonstrate your persistence and adaptability during the unprecedented time.  Challenges will come; however, I can’t think of a group of students I would rather fight this battle with. We will continue working on raising test scores for all of our students. I have a personal goal of reaching 90% in all testing areas (Math, Science, and English).  We have reached that goal with Math and are only a few percentage points from the others.  It can be done and I have no doubt that it will be done.  If you ever have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out to me or my administrative team for assistance.  Go Bulldogs!
