    About Knight's Closet
    We have more than 3,600 students in the high school, many of whom fall below the poverty level. We also have students who are often suffering from homelessness.  Some of these students struggle to meet their basic needs everyday. Our goal by creating the Knight Closet is to meet students basic needs with items such as food, clothing, hygiene products and school supplies.  We are hopeful by fulfilling these needs students will be able to focus on their education. The social work team will be working closely with these students to ensure they are educated on how to access additional outside resources.
