Panther Pages, January 8, 2021

We are so excited to be back in-person on Monday!! As a
reminder, we are offering a Rolling Start in hopes of limiting the
number of people congregating and gathering each
morning. The Rolling Start is between the times of 8:00 am – 8:20
am: We will begin meeting students at their designated location as
early as 8:00 am. We will consider your student tardy after 8:20 am.

Which Doors do Students Use:
o ECE ~ through the ECE classroom door – Door #17.
o K ~ through their individual classroom doors. Ms Lulu’s
door is door #14. Ms Neale’s door is door #15.

Family and Mental Health Resources
Welcome back! Hopefully the promise of a new year brings
hope and optimism for 2021. Even so, many families in our
community continue to face unprecedented challenges. It
is important to know that you or your family members might
experience intense and complex emotions during these
times. While many welcomes the transition to in-person
learning, it may also feel like a disruption or bring up questions
about safety. Even those who remain in remote learning may
be faced with schedule changes or classroom changes. If
you or your children are experiencing emotions of anxiety,
disappointment, stress, or isolation, know that you are not
alone in this.

If you are having concerns about your Park Hill student, visit
http://parkhillelementary.org/community-resources/ for more
information and resources. In addition, PLEASE reach out to a
trusted PHE staff member or our PHE school psychologist, Julia
Wigert.
