First Day Information

Wednesday, September 1, will be the first day of classes for King Philip students. Our main lobby doors will be open at 7:15 AM. Walkers and drop-off students who arrive between 7:15 and 7:25 AM should proceed directly to the cafeteria. At approximately 7:25 AM, all students including bus riders, will move to their first period classrooms. The warning bell will ring at 7:30 AM and first period will begin at 7:35 AM. Students are expected to be in their assigned classrooms at that time. The school day ends at 2:15 PM.


On the first day of school, first period will be extended so that students will have time to get their locker assignment, find and open/close their locker, and get to know their class schedule.


It is important that students know which classroom to report to for first period.

Student Schedules

Student schedules will be available on Infinite Campus by 9:00 AM on Monday, August 30.

SNAP Health Portal

Each school year students must be registered in the SNAP Health Portal.

SNAP maintains King Philip’s students’ health records. If you registered last year, you must re-register this year.


We will not be able to administer any over-the-counter medications, until you register with SNAP and give permission by electing medications you wish your child to have while in middle school. Please follow the directions for registering in the link below:
