Mrs. Murphy

You may not park against the side walls. If parking is filled up, talk to campus security and they will direct you to a spot.


Mr. Walz

If you are planning to take a digital AP exam you must download and install the AP Digital Exam app. In addition, you must set up each individual exam in the app 1-3 days prior to the exam date. Attempting to complete these steps on exam day may put your ability to take the test at risk.


Ms. Henry and the DEI Office

The Upper School Student DEI Task Force has been established. I would like to introduce the KPS student leaders who have already started working with Delbarton School Upper School students and they are Luna Markels, Leah Paul, Kathryn Tucker, and Adaora Dadson. Please take time to congratulate them and encourage them as they have accepted this leadership role. At this time they will provide you with information about their upcoming Meet and Greet event.

KPS and Delbarton School have decided to officially collaborate with one another to host events and discussions around various topics. We are planning a meeting with the theme of identity on zoom for Tuesday, June 1.

On Friday May 21 the music wing will be off limits. All the AP Language and Music Theory exams will take place. No use of big rooms or small studios is permitted. Your teachers and advisors will be in touch with you about an alternative meeting spot for class. We also kindly request that you do not exit the music wing door except for emergencies because of the noise.
