Principal's Message

Mr. Grey Young

Knighthawk Family,

I hope that all of our families are doing well and staying healthy! Obviously, we are in unprecedented times with the closure of schools until the end of March as the COVID-19 virus has rocked our world. I am so proud of our school district and most importantly, our PKMS staff, that has worked tirelessly to develop an E-Learning system for 900 plus students so quickly (17,000 students in the district). 


During this difficult time, our students will be served through an E-Learning system that our district and teachers have designed. This platform will allow our students to receive valuable instruction while we are physically away from school. On Sunday evening, all parents received a survey to determine whether they had the capability to be served on E-Learning or get a paper/pencil option. If you informed us on that survey that you need the paper/pencil option, you may pick up your packets on Wednesday, March 18 between 7AM and 1PM at the front of the school. There is more information below about the paper/pencil packets.


Obviously, these are uncharted waters for all of us. We are going to continue to work as hard as we can to provide the best experience possible for your child. We ask for your patience and flexibility as we work through this new way of learning. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the ongoing support of our PKMS community. I have had so many parents ask what they can do to help. The overwhelming support of all of you is what makes our community so great.


As I am sure you can imagine, we are going to miss our students tremendously. Our teachers and staff went into this field because of them and the ability to work with them each day. While we will continue to help them, it is heartbreaking that we will not get to see their smiling faces for the next few weeks. We look forward to their return!


Thank you again for all that you do as parents! 


Grey Young, Principal
