SAFE2TELL

Our Fifth grade students have been made aware of various resources they can contact if they have a safety concern.  Safe2Tell is one of these resources.  Safe2Tell has made available an app for phones. We thought you might want to make note of this resource as well, should your child share a concern with you or if you have one yourself. Look at flyer for more information.

RETURNING STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE

We need to confirm our student numbers for next year. This information allows us to avoid overcrowding, retain staff, and accept waitlisted students if there is a space. You can help by completing and returning one letter for each student currently attending Park Hill grades ECE through 4th grade by May 13, 2019.
