    2022-2023 Info - Stay Up to Date!

    Food Service

    The 2022-23 School Year Free and Reduced Meal Benefits application is available! Families must submit a new application each year (after July 1st) in order to qualify for benefits for the entire 2022-23 school year. The federal waivers that allowed for free school meals for all students have ended so those families who do not submit applications or do not qualify for meal benefits will need to purchase breakfast and lunch for their students. Apply NOW so that your student(s) does not incur unpaid meal charges when school begins again in August. The online application can be found here, Free & Reduced Meals Application, and paper applications will be available.

    Transportation
    Bussing will be available again this year for students. We will no longer be posting bus routes online going forward due to student safety. Please watch your email for communication about routes and stops prior to the start of school. If you need to speak with someone at the bus garage, or for more information, please visit khps.org/transportation.

    Early Childhood Center (ECC)

    Now, Knighthood can start even earlier! The Early Childhood Center (ECC) now accepts Knights as young as 6 weeks in our newly developed infant room! The ECC houses several programs including Community Education Preschool, Great Start Readiness Preschool, and a Daycare and Learning Center, which includes both before- and after-school childcare for children from kindergarten to fifth grade, as well as all-day childcare with educational enrichment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

    For more information visit khps.org/early-childhood-center or call us at 616-647-0910.

        EDUCATION
        REDEFINED

        Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
