Summer School Reminders

Students are reminded to do their best in all summer school classes (TCC & VBCPS & Virtual Virginia & Online). These grades will factor into your High School GPA. It is extremely important that you take the classes seriously and do your best over the summer!

Class of 2020 Internship Summer Information

Mrs. Routsis held two meetings last week to go over important information prior to students enrolling in the Internship program for next school year. Please review the attachments below for more information.

Please check the Schoology group over the summer. We are receiving lots of leads of businesses who are interested in interns for the upcoming year and are working to place students over the summer.

VBCPS Transportation Forms

You probably received an email from VBCPS regarding transportation forms. The school system is working on a new process to place transportation for all students into our student information database.

It is very important for us to have forms for out-of-zone academy students. If you have not yet returned a transportation form for the 2019-20 school year, please return the attached completed form to Ms. Timlin in the Main Office at Kempsville High School or email the form to meghan.timlin@vbschools.com

TCC Fall On Campus Classes

Students taking Fall Classes on TCC's campus (Accounting, Economics & Biology) are reminded that classes start and follow the TCC calendar. Classes begin on Monday, August 19, 2019.

If a student needs transportation for these courses from Kempsville HS to TCC and back for the two weeks prior to the start of VBCPS, please let Ms. Timlin know by email meghan.timlin@vbschools.com by 8/5.

Textbooks for Fall on campus classes are purchased by VBCPS and can be picked up at Kempsville High School in the Main Office from Ms. McKittrick starting on August 12. The Lab Manual required for Biology is purchased individually by each family/student.

KHS Honor Code

The KHS Honor Code is being updated for school year 2019-20. Please carefully review the guidelines.

Requests for Reports

We have received a number of inquires regarding requesting reports for students community service hours, master classes, and job shadow requirements. We will only print these once a year (to save paper). Students can request these reports at anytime by emailing our Office Associate Ms. Cora McKittrick at mailto:cora.mckittrick@vbschools.com .

Please note that we do want STUDENTS to request their reports and advocate for themselves. This is an important skill that we are trying to teach them - on that same note, we will never turn them away from parents, if you want to request them, please know that you need to be a parent who is linked to the student Synergy page to request this information.
