Welcome to Covington High School! To all new and returning students, I hope that your high school experience provides you with a lifetime of wonderful memories and prepares you for an abundance of opportunities in the future. Your time at Covington High School will move quickly, but the work you do here will be immensely impactful. As your principal, I assure that you will have the support and resources needed to be successful academically and socially. Whether you are just starting your high school experience with us or embarking on your senior year, your commitment and dedication to success is essential.
Covington High School has a rich tradition of community, and as students and parents, you are members of this proud community. We have many opportunities for all to be involved. The programs that we offer enable our students to be responsible and independent citizens. A key to student success is parent involvement. I encourage parents to continue to stay involved in their child’s educational growth and become an active part in the Covington High School community.
To our incoming freshmen, put your best foot forward as you start your amazing journey into young adulthood. To our sophomores and juniors, continue to demonstrate P.R.I.D.E (Personal Responsibility in Developing Excellence) in everything you do and persist, even when things get more difficult. And finally, to our seniors, enjoy your final year at your beloved Covington High School, stay focused on your goals, persevere as the struggles get greater, and remember Once a Lion, Always a Lion!
