Dear Park Hill Families:

Thank you for another good week. I admire the strength,
resilience and determination in our PHE students. As you
may have heard earlier, the Mayor has issued a curfew
as of this Sunday. At this time, this will not have any
impact on our school schedule or plans. We will
maintain ECE through second grade in-person learning,
while third grade through fifth grade will continue in the
remote setting. I hope everyone has a restful and
relaxing weekend, and look forward to connecting
again on Monday.

Ken Burdette, Principal

Attention ALL Remote Student Parents
New features in Google Meets allow students to change their
background image. While this may be a nice feature, kids should
not be changing their backgrounds during class or instruction.
PLEASE have this discussion with your student(s). Not only is this
incredibly disruptive in class, we are experiencing a slowdown in
technology when kids are changing their backgrounds.

Park Hill School Store
The Park Hill School Store is now open! Please use the link below
to order your Park Hill gear. The deadline to order is next Friday,
November 13.

Late Arrival and Early Pick-Up
If you are bringing your student to school late (after 8:20 am),
please bring them to the main front doors of the school and ring
the bell. Someone from the office will come down to collect your
student and deliver them to their classroom.
If you plan to pick up your student from school early, please call
the front office when you arrive at the building. When we know
you are here, we will collect your student from their classroom and
deliver them to you out the main front doors of the school. Please
give yourself an extra 10 minutes for this process. We will not grant
early dismissals after 2:30 pm.

Please Be Kind to our Crossing Guards
Our crossing guards volunteer their time to help our students cross
the street safely. Please be respectful of them whether you are
crossing the street, or in your car waiting for them to let you pass.
