Unlock Your Parent Access

Did you know that Park Hill has a secure online site where you can see your child's school information? It's called, Infinite Campus Parent Portal!

The Parent Portal gives parents and guardians immediate access to important student information such as grades, schedules, and attendance. It also allows parents/guardians to view their household contact information and student emergency contacts, and they can request updates to this information directly from the Portal.

When parents/guardians know about their child's school records they can better support him/her and their teacher.

Volunteer to be a Watch D.O.G.

Watch DOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles and other father-figures who volunteer at schools. During the time that Watch DOGS volunteer, they may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. If you are interested in volunteering as a Watch DOG please contact Robin Davis @

Elementary Device Expansion

Technology expansions for the 2018-2019 school year!

It is no surprise that we are already planning for the 2018-2019 school year! The Park Hill Department of Technology and Instructional Technology completed an exploration process for expanding devices at the elementary level. During this process, one common piece of feedback that was overwhelmingly clear was the need for more devices in Kindergarten through fourth grade classrooms. Based on this feedback, teacher interviews and extensive research, the Park Hill Department of Technology and Instructional Technology announced earlier this week that we would be expanding the devices available in all Kindergarten through fourth grade classrooms. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, students in third through fifth grade will have one-to-one laptop access and students in Kindergarten through second grade will have two-to-one laptop access.

Kindergarten through second grade teachers also expressed a need for even more than a two-to-one level of access overall and Kindergarten through first grade teachers shared a desire to consider iPads as an alternative device type. Therefore, we will be piloting one-to-one laptops in select Kindergarten through second grade classrooms and one-to-one iPads in select Kindergarten and first grade classrooms. The one-to-one pilots will help us determine future actions regarding ideal device types and ratios at each of these levels.

We are excited that this expansion will provide students with the technology access needed to support Park Hill curriculum and 21st century learning goals.

Park Hill School District Long-Range Facility Plan Update

New Schools’ Names

Park Hill’s newest schools finally have names! Our Board of Education named them Hopewell Elementary and Walden Middle School, choosing from the recommendations of our naming committees. The two committees, made up of students, parents, staff and community members, sorted through 744 school name suggestions from students and the public that ranged from the silly to the serious.

Near the site of Hopewell Elementary, archeologists found artifacts from an ancient network of Native Americans known today as the Hopewell culture,

which was spread across most of North America from 200 BC to 500 AD and connected by trade routes. Walden Middle School’s name comes from the old

township, Parkdale Walden, where we are building the new school.

Here are some other important long-range plan updates:

  • The Board will consider the design for our support services facility and transportation facility in March.
  • The Board will set the criteria for our redistricting process in fall of 2018, and you will have the opportunity to share input before the Board makes a final decision in March 2019.
  • Middle school construction is on schedule, and we will soon break ground for the elementary. Both schools will open in August 2019.

We will share more updates as they are available.
