Welcome Back Parkside Bullfrogs!

We were so excited to see all of our new and returning students! This school year we are going to Rise to the Challenge as we set goals and work every day to achieve them! Parkside Elementary is a "B" school for the 3rd consecutive year and we are ready to build on that success!

The staff and students at Parkside have been getting to know each other to facilitate a positive and encouraging classroom and school community! Parents are an essential partner in a child's education and we look forward to working together.

There are many helpful links below, so please take a few moments to look through the information in the newsletter. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher or call the front office. We are here to help!

FortifyFL is a suspicious activity reporting tool that allows you to instantly relay information to appropriate law enforcement agencies and school officials.

FortifyFL was created and funded by the 2018 Florida Legislature as part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. The application was named by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The Office of Attorney General, Department of Education and Florida Department of Law Enforcement coordinated its development and roll-out.
