Park Hill Summer School starts on May 31! Full-day summer school is a free, fun, caring place for your child to learn during the summer. Students who will enter kindergarten through eighth grade in the fall will focus on a combination of academic and exploration classes.

Please complete and return the application form to your school office TODAY to make sure your elementary or middle-school student will have transportation. Bus routes and stops may vary from those of the regular school year and will be assigned based on student enrollment turned in by May 12. Enrollees after this date will be assigned to an existing bus stop. You can also purchase meals for your child during summer school, just as you can during the school year.
