2020-21 Back to School Resources


To Our KCHS Families:

Happy summer to you all! I want to take the opportunity to thank all of our parents for the tremendous support that we enjoy, and, to our new parents, welcome to Catholic High!

We are hard at work to craft scenarios for optimal health, spiritual, academic, and social aspects of school life in the coming year.

Read our 2020-21 Reopening Plans

In light of the students’ return to school on August 3, we plan to release schedules on Thursday, July 30.

In the meantime, please use the links provided below to access information to prepare for our return in the fall.

Parents of incoming Freshmen often ask what supplies they need to purchase for students. Please note, KCHS does not have a school supplies list for any grade including incoming Freshmen.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me during our summer office hours, Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. I hope that you and your family enjoy a restful and relaxing summer.

God Bless,

Dickie Sompayrac
