Learning. Growing. Collaborating & Achieving @KrumHighSchool

September 8, 2020

Greetings KHS Family!


The faculty and staff of Krum High School send a big shout out to all students for a successful completion of the first three weeks. Our campus has experienced growth this year, with 664 young people enrolled. Even with an expanding student population, we strive to work with all stakeholders in the development of our community’s young people. Thank you to everyone who attended events last week to support our students.


On Friday we completed the first three weeks grading period and on Tuesday, September 8th, our students received their first progress reports for the 2020-2021 school year. All of our teachers all have email addresses and there is a staff directory on our website. Email is often the easiest form of communication should you have a specific question regarding your student's performance in a class. Please do not hesitate to contact your student's teacher at any time.


Now that we have been in school for three weeks, if for some reason you have changed your mind regarding the instructional model you have chosen, please complete the form that is linked below. Your change will begin two weeks from the time we receive the notice in our office.



Please note, UIL updated their COVID mitigation procedures on September 1, 2020. A couple of important pieces to note from the plan include:

  • Spectators, audiences, fans and media are required to wear face coverings as described in Executive Order GA-29.
  • Sites are encouraged to utilize remote ticketing options to help manage capacity limitations within a maximum 50% occupancy. Paper tickets and programming should be minimized to help avoid transferable materials.
  • Groups should maintain at least six feet of distance from other groups at all times, including the process of admission and seating. A group is defined as no more than 10 people including the members of the household and those persons who traveled together to the facility.

Please access the full plan at the following website: https://www.uiltexas.org/policy/covid-19/2020-2021-uil-covid-19-risk-mitigation-guidelines.


In order to maintain active communication, we will distribute this newsletter each month. We want you to stay informed about activities at our school. As always, if you have any suggestions for improvement, we are open to hearing them. We view ourselves as partners in your student's education and look forward to collaborating with you. Please feel free to contact me at michelle.pieniazek@krumisd.net.


Go Bobcats!

¡Saludos a la familia de KHS!


La facultad y el personal de Krum High School envían un gran agradecimiento a todos los estudiantes por completar con éxito las primeras tres semanas. Nuestro campus ha experimentado un crecimiento este año, con 664 jóvenes inscritos. Incluso con una población estudiantil en expansión, nos esforzamos por trabajar con todas las partes interesadas en el desarrollo de los jóvenes de nuestra comunidad. Gracias a todos los que asistieron a los eventos la semana pasada para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes.


El viernes completamos el período de calificaciones de las primeras tres semanas y el martes 8 de septiembre, nuestros estudiantes recibieron sus primeros informes de progreso para el año escolar 2020-2021. Todos nuestros maestros tienen direcciones de correo electrónico y hay un directorio de personal en nuestro sitio web. El correo electrónico es a menudo la forma más sencilla de comunicación si tiene una pregunta específica sobre el desempeño de su estudiante en una clase. No dude en comunicarse con el maestro de su estudiante en cualquier momento.


Ahora que hemos estado en la escuela durante tres semanas, si por alguna razón ha cambiado de opinión con respecto al modelo de instrucción que ha elegido, complete el formulario que está vinculado a continuación. Su cambio comenzará dos semanas después del momento en que recibamos el aviso en nuestra oficina.


  • Instructional Change Form

  • Tenga en cuenta que UIL actualizó sus procedimientos de mitigación de COVID el 1 de septiembre de 2020. Un par de piezas importantes a tener en cuenta del plan incluyen: Se requiere que los espectadores, el público, los fanáticos y los medios de comunicación se cubran la cara como se describe en la Orden Ejecutiva GA-29. Se alienta a los sitios a utilizar opciones de emisión de boletos remotos para ayudar a administrar las limitaciones de capacidad dentro de una ocupación máxima del 50%. Los boletos impresos y la programación deben reducirse al mínimo para ayudar a evitar materiales transferibles. Los grupos deben mantener al menos seis pies de distancia de otros grupos en todo momento, incluido el proceso de admisión y asientos. Un grupo se define como no más de 10 personas, incluidos los miembros del hogar y las personas que viajaron juntas a la instalación. Acceda al plan completo en el siguiente sitio web:https://www.uiltexas.org/policy/covid-19/2020-2021-uil-covid-19-risk-mitigation-guidelines.

    Varsity Football vs. Hillsboro Friday Night 9/4

    submitted by: Morgan Robinson

    The Bobcat Varsity Football team suffered a defeat this past Friday night to a strong Hillsboro team, 27-0. Jadon Hunter performed admirably on offense and is this week's offensive player of the game. The Bobcat defense got very strong performances from several players, including Jake Ellingwood who was the defensive player of the game. Ellingwood compiled 11 tackles, 3 of which were for losses. 'Mean' Connor Green and senior Jacob Miller turned in impressive linebacking performances, each recording 12 tackles. Jadon Hunter and Jake Cook round out the defensive notables, both recording interceptions. Billy Lackey was the Bobcat special teams player of the week. Lackey returned a kick and performed well on all of his special teams assignments. The Bobcats will rebound this coming Friday night against the Farmers of Farmersville. That game is scheduled for a 7:30 kick-off in Farmersville. The Bobcat players and coaches appreciate your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all there Friday night! Go Bobcats!!!

    JV Prevails over Hillsboro 19-8

    submitted by Coleton Cox

    The JV Bobcats played their first home game Thursday night against the Hillsboro Eagles. It was a hard fought game, but another win for the good guys as Krum outlasted Hillsboro 19-8.


    After a quick 0-0 first quarter, Ashton Lovell put the Bobcats on the board with a 2 yard touchdown rush early in the 2nd quarter. Later in the quarter Jackson Endicott added a rushing touchdown of his own.


    The Krum defense played hard, holding the Eagles to only one score. Xavier Moreno and Michale Holt led the way defensively, along with Kemper Vaughn and Logan Kniatt. Hillsboro had a tough time moving the ball, with the hard hitting Bobcat defense consistently leaving the Eagles a little gotch eyed.


    Late in the game, Creed Payne had a 7 yard touchdown run, sealing the victory for Krum. The JV football team looks to continue to roll next week against the Farmers of Farmersville.


    Please congratulate the JV football team when you see them on the hard fought victory.

    Bobcats Defeat North Lamar 49-20

    Submitted by: Morgan Robinson

    An off-season full of hard work, and a vigorous fall camp coalesced Friday night as the Bobcats defeated the Panthers of North Lamar, 49-20. The Bobcat offense proved to be very potent, led by the offensive player of the game Cagen Clark. Clark was 12 of 20 passing with one touchdown, and added two more rushing touchdowns on the ground. The Bobcat rushing attack was further bolstered by Trey Cook who had 139 yards rushing on 18 carries, and three rushing touchdowns. Coy Warmoth rounds out the notable offensive players with his physical, aggressive play on the Bobcat offensive line. The Bobcat defense was very stingy Friday night, holding the Panthers to only 208 yards of offense. Jake Cook was the defensive player of the game. He had ten tackles and two interceptions. His two interceptions ties a Bobcat single game record. Conway Smith was solid up front with 10 tackles, three of which were for a loss. He also added one sack. Jake Ellingwood was also a formidable foe for the Panthers, having 9 tackles, one of which was for a loss. Nico Campusano, the special teams player of the game, was perfect on extra point attempts, and allowed the Bobcat kick off coverage to pin the Panther offense deep in their own territory all night long.

    The Bobcats will be on the road next week against Hillsboro looking to go 2-0 to start the season. Thank you to all that came and supported the team Friday night, and we hope to see out next week. Go Bobcats!!

    JV Football Defeats North Lamar 34-0

    submitted by: Coleton Cox

    The JV Football team started the season off the right way, beating the Paris North Lamar Panthers 34-0 on Thursday in Paris.


    The scoring started early when the Bobcats blocked a punt out of the back of the end zone on the Panther's first possession, resulting in a safety.


    Later, Kemper Vaughn would scamper 45 yards on a touchdown run, followed shortly by a 35 yard TD by Ashton Lovell (Lovell's first of two rushing touchdowns).


    The JV defense flew around the field, frequently pushing North Lamar backwards. Hunter Mayfield, Logan Kniatt and Xavier Moreno led the way, all with multiple tackles for loss.


    Creed Payne also had a successful day offensively, converting on a 30 yard touchdown pass to Brayden Loucks early in the 3rd quarter.


    Finally, the scoring was capped off by a hard fought 5 yard touchdown run by Jackson Endicott, ensuring the Bobcat's victory late in the game.
