We sent a school messenger on Friday, however, for some reason the report that came after indicated it did not reach everyone. We are working with technology on this and will ensure our communication reaches all families.

Park Hill School District often takes or allows members of the media to take photographs and audio-video recordings for positive recognition and promotional purposes. If you wish to opt out of any media or photographs of your child, an opt-out form is available through the school office.
2019-2020 Free and Reduced Lunch Applications
Volunteers are important to the success of the Park Hill School District, and we appreciate their service to our schools. In order to keep our children safe, all volunteers who might ever be around students without an employee present must be screened. The screening packet can be accessed HERE.
Additionally, a huge thank you to all of our parent volunteers that helped get classroom ready for the start of the year!
Birthday Treats will be first brought to the nurse to check for classroom allergies and then will be delivered to the cafeteria for celebration during lunch.
