A note from our counselor, Mrs. Collins

Greetings Line Creek Families,

Effective comprehensive school counseling programs are vital to Park Hill and a critical element in the development of academic, social/emotional, and career-ready individuals. Line Creek’s Comprehensive School Counseling Program aims to have a positive impact on students, parents, families, and communities. We want to ensure that Line Creek continues to develop and provide counseling services that address our students’ needs.

Please complete the below survey as it intends to gather valuable information about what students at Line Creek may require with counseling and guidance program/curriculum. Please be honest in your responses. I greatly appreciate your time and help.

In May everything will be pulled from the racks and re-donated so we can start new for next Fall. We have a massive number of clothes right now! There are only 5 shopping days left this year! We'd love to get them out of the building and into kids' homes!

A Note from Nurse Liz

A couple of reminders from the health room:

Line Creek Parents,

Does your student have medication in the health room? If so, this medication needs to be picked up by a parent/guardian no later than May 25th! There are a lot of events coming up at school in May so if you are attending those events, please consider stopping by the health room to pick up your students’ medication! Of course, if your student takes a daily medication, you can leave that medication here until 3:00 pm on the last day of school. All medication left in the health room after 3:00 pm on the last day of school will be wasted and thrown out; this includes inhalers and EpiPens. Please reach out with any questions!
