We will continue to send out information about the start of the year and other back-to-school events throughout the next four weeks.

Updating Your Emergency Data Review

Now that we have updated our system and moved to the 2022-2023 school year, it is that time for parents and families to log into Infinite Campus and update your family's important information. This includes emails, phone numbers, addresses, and emergency contacts. We ask that all families- log into their accounts to verify the information.

Instructions for Completing the Emergency Data Review are linked here and in the picture next to the right. (**Más información aquí en español)

First Time Bus Rider Event

Join the Worthington Transportation Department for our First Time Riders Event! We look forward to meeting all of our new First-Time Riders for the start of the 2022-23 school year! Children riding the bus for the first time will get to meet drivers, learn safety lessons, take rides with their parents, and learn what it means to be a safe bus rider. This is also a great time to confirm your bus stop location and pick-up/dropoff times!

We encourage families to join us during their school's assigned times, but you are welcome to stop by whenever you can! Worthington Park Elementary will be 11 am-12 pm at the Worthington Education Center

Worthington, OH 43085



We Need YOUR Help on Aug 7th!

Join the Worthington Park Staff and Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) for our annual "WoPark Beautification Day!" Help us make the outside of the building look wonderful for our students' return. We supply the mulch, plants, water, and popsicles...you bring the yard tools and gloves!

The event will start at 9am! We hope to see you there.

Other Information

Food Service Information: Here at Worthington Park, students will have access to breakfast and lunch daily. While the past two school years were different, this year all school food service departments are required by the USDA to return to pre-pandemic operations for the 2022-2023 School Year. The pandemic put a pause of families and students having the routines of using lunch PIN codes and depositing funds for school meals. We are returning to our original model this fall. More information can be found below!

Worthington Food Service Important Information

More Busing Updates: Attention all bus riders! It is important that our transportation department has the correct pickup and drop-off location for your child. Bus route information will be available August 3rd. Should you know in advance that your child will need dropped off at a location other than your home, please fill out the Alternative Transportation Request Form as soon as possible.

Resource for parents to find their own login credentials: Parents can access their own login credentials by clicking the Password Recovery link under Quick Links on the Worthington Schools main page. They enter their email address (it needs to be the email that we have on file for them) and will immediately get an email sent to them with their district-provided username and password, which they can use to login to the Parent Portal as well as Infinite Campus.

Finding Student ID #: For My Payments Plus, parents can find their child's Student ID # by logging in to Infinite Campus and clicking on Today. The 9-digit student number is under student name, visible on both the app and when accessing Infinite Campus through the Parent Portal or the Infinite Campus website.
