Patriots Boys' Basketball Gaining Momentum
in the Post-Season

For the first time since 2001, the KDS Varsity Boys Basketball team claimed an area championship with a 55-51 win over Randolph on Thursday, February 7.

KDS Coach Kenny Downs was a sophomore on that 2001 team that would go on to play in the State Final Four. This year's area title is the first for the boys' team as a 4A classification school.  

Flu Outbreak Closes School

A widespread flu outbreak has once again resulted in a campus-wide school closing at KDS.

A high number of student and employee absences at KDS and the other Marshall County Schools since the beginning of 2019 culminated in a system-wide shut-down on Monday, January 28 and Tuesday, January 29.

When school resumed on Wednesday, there were nearly 250 KDS students absent at the start of the day, and more were sent home sick throughout the day. These staggering figures, along with similar attendance figures elsewhere in Marshall County, prompted the decision to close school for the remainder of the week - Thursday, January 31 and Friday, February 1 - to give students time to recover and school officials time to sanitize facilities.

KDS Players Make All-State Football Team
This year, during what was an amazing football season for KDS DAR High School, two players who excelled earned spots on the All-State Football Team. Seniors Brayden Lewis and Will Bailey were selected for First Team All-State, which is a special honor. Brayden is a wide receiver, and Will plays quarterback.
