All Students - Medication Reminder


1 dose (2-4 pills) of an over-the-counter medication can be carried with a student in the high school as long as it is in a container that states what the medication is. Some medications that fall in this category are Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Midol, etc. No medications are to be carried in baggies. NO PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS ARE TO BE CARRIED WITH A STUDENT UNLESS APPROVED BY THE SCHOOL NURSE. If you want the school nurse to administer medications to your student, a Medication Guidelines and Authorization Form needs to be completed and the medication brought to the Health Room.

SENIOR DECISION DAY 2019

Park Hill High School is throwing a Senior Decision Day event to celebrate our graduating seniors who have made the commitment to complete their education past high school. We will host our decision day on April 30, 2019 during lunch, and will recognize students who plan to attend any college, university, community college, other education or training program or military. Former First Lady Michelle Obama started celebrating College Signing Day at the White House as part of the Reach Higher initiative. As the tradition continues, we are thrilled to take part in a network of over 1,500 events nationwide right here in Kansas City. Celebrating our seniors' success means more than a party; it means they know we are proud of their hard work, invested in their futures, and excited to see what they do next. We will celebrate during lunch on April 30, and hope to have a variety of door prizes for students to win. If you would like to donate to our DonorsChoose.org fundraising campaign, our students would be very appreciative! Visit http://tinyurl.com/y2taxqs2 to donate!
