Family Feedback Survey

You should have received an invitation to participate in our annual Park Hill Parent/Guardian survey, which will be open until October 4th. The email from Panorama will have a unique link to access your survey. Panorama is a third party administrator that keeps all of the data from our survey strictly confidential.


If you do not have access to the email with the survey link, this link will take you to our school’s survey. The Southeast access code is: 3499804515


We will share the results with the public after the survey window closes. Thank you in advance for completing your parent/guardian survey as we use the results to monitor our strategic measures and continuously improve Park Hill.


If you have any questions, please email Dr. Mike Kimbrel.

Attendance

Attendance is one of the most important factors in academic achievement and we would like your help regarding attendance and punctuality. When students arrive late or leave early consistently, they miss important instructional time. Missouri guidelines require 90% of our students to be in attendance 90% of the time. To help meet this goal, Park Hill has established expectations for attendance and letters will be sent to families if the following attendance percentages are not met.

Level 1: Attendance rate of 90%

Level 2: Attendance rate between 85% and 90%

Level 3: Attendance rate is below 80%


Ms. Hart, our School Social Worker, will be working with students and families to make sure we meet the 90/90 goal at Southeast Please help us by making being at school a priority for your family.


If your child does have to be absent, please call the school office (359-4360) to report the student's absence. If the school does not receive a call when a student is absent, we will attempt to contact you to check on the student.

Social Worker Spotlight

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing tips and facts to help improve attendance


Tip of the week— Carefully weigh sick days. Keep in mind that we have a school nurse, who is happy to see your child if they’re not feeling well. When your child is sick, always check with your child’s healthcare provider to determine how long he or she should stay home from school.

Do You Know A Park Hill Star?

The Park Hill Star recognition program was started in 2015 to celebrate support staff and teachers whose work is especially noteworthy.


The following is an overview of the Park Hill Star Program:

Our employees are the reason we are so successful here in the Park Hill School District, and we would like to recognize them for all they do for our students.
That is why we present the Park Hill Star award once a month to a pre-K or elementary teacher, a secondary teacher and a support employee.

Southeast Communication

You will find several ways to stay up to date on school activities throughout the year on the Southeast website , Facebook, Twitter and newsletters from your child’s teacher. You will also occasionally get an automated email or voicemail message sent to you by the school with important information and reminders. We know two-way communication is best, so please feel free to call, email, or stop by the school with any questions you may have regarding your child’s education.
