Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to any one of us at your convenience.
Very truly yours,
Stefanie M. Fox-Manno, Principal

PowerSchool, Schoology, Naviance: Where Do I Go?
The Kingsway Regional School District utilizes a number of systems at the high school to ensure it communicates information effectively with students and families. Below are three major systems used by the high school through which important information is shared and/or can be accessed. The chart below outlines some information found within each system.
Join The Kingsway High School Advisory Council (KHSAC)
Kingsway High School would like to invite parents to become involved with their children’s education by joining KHSAC. The Kingsway High School Advisory Council (KHSAC) is an organization that consists of parents, teachers, and administrators from the high school. Its purpose is to afford the opportunity for involvement and input into school-related issues by all the constituent groups who are members of or are served by the school community.
This organization coordinates the many different constituent concerns in order to better maximize and focus discussion on school issues. It is the intent of the organization to foster an atmosphere of empowerment and cooperation that will promote excellence in our school.
Our first meeting will be on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. The meeting will be held from 6:30pm-7:30pm in Seminar Room 217 at the high school.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Mrs. Barber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested In Being a Career Speaker for KRHS
In an ongoing effort to expose our students to a variety of careers and career pathways, Kingsway Regional High School is soliciting interest in volunteers from the community to come in and speak to interested students about their profession. Your visit will be advertised to the whole student body and interested students who sign up will receive a pass to attend your presentation on an agreed-upon day and time. If you have completed this form in a previous year, please complete it again as we start a fresh list each year. Your offer to share your experience, expertise, and time is very much appreciated!
Interest in Being a Career Speaker at Kingsway Regional High School (2022-2023 School Year)
Thank you for your interest in sharing your experiences with our students. We value collaborating with our community to expand our students' understanding of college, career, military and more as they explore their future possibilities. Please complete the form below and someone from the district will contact you to discuss further/schedule.
Student Chromebooks: Expectations for the 2022-23 School Year
Our 1:1 Chromebook initiative supports student learning in and outside of the classroom. The district-issued device is part of each student's necessary classroom supplies, similar to a pencil, book, or paper. All students are expected to attend every class, every day prepared with a fully charged, district-issued Chromebook with the charging cord. We highly recommend designating a location in your home for the device to charge at night and to be easily placed in the student's backpack in the morning. Establishing this routine from "Day 1" is critical. Click here for more information related to our Chromebook expectations.
South Media Center Open After School
The South Media Center is now open for students after school. The SMC is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday until 4:15pm. Students can sign in after school at the South Media Center. This is a time for students to work on homework/projects.
Late Bus - 4:15 p.m.
Please be advised that the late bus will run at 4:15pm during the 2022-23 school year. There is no longer a 5:45 pm late bus.
