Incomplete Grades

If your student has an incomplete (IC) on their grade card from first semester, they should have been given a contract from Dr. Eisenmenger. The contract needs to be returned to Dr. Eisenmenger and the deadline for work completion is January 27th. If your student does not complete the work, the grade will be changed to an F. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Dr. Eisenmenger at Eisenmengers@parkhill.k12.mo.us

Super Test Day is March 7th

While we will be providing more details on Park Hill's Super Test Day in future newsletters, we want you to know now that it will be March 7th. Because there is no makeup day for Super Test Day, it is important that we have students here that day. If your student has any appointments that day that can be rescheduled, we kindly ask you to consider doing so. Super Test Day is a great opportunity to take the Pre-ACT or ACT, and we don't want your student to miss out!

Information for Parents of 8th Grade Students

Our process for indicating that your current 8th grader wants to attend LEAD their freshman year has changed. Please read the attached document below, focusing specifically on pages 4 and 5, which detail the new process for requesting that your child attends LEAD via the parent portal.

Immunization Clinic


All current 11th grade students will need their 2nd Meningococcal immunization prior to starting their 12th grade year. The Platte County Health Department will be at LEAD on 2/9/23 to give these immunizations to families that are interested. Please reach out to the LEAD nurses if you would like more information on registering for this event.

You can contact the LEAD health room at 816-359-4134.

Miles of Smiles at LEAD

Miles of Smiles, a program of Level Up Kids, provides free dental care to children in the Northland who do not have access to oral health services. The dental care will be provided to students at LEAD during the school day at Hopewell Elementary on February 7th – February 28th!

All care is provided by a licensed dentist and assistants and all patients receive a comprehensive exam, cleaning and x-rays. Transportation will be provided to LEAD students to and from Hopewell Elementary.

Please register ASAP if you would like your student to be seen during the school day. We highly encourage online registration, which is quick, easy and convenient! You can register right from your phone!




Please contact Karen Schaff (816-359-6175) or Betsy Chociej (816-359-6417) if you have any questions or need help registering your student.

AMI Days

A reminder that when dangerous weather, temperatures or road conditions make it unsafe for students to get to school, we will call an AMI distance learning day.

The state has allocated five AMI (alternative methods of instruction) distance learning days, which means that on inclement weather days, all students will learn from home from 9 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. On the sixth bad-weather day, we will have a good old-fashioned snow day with no school.

In the event of an AMI day, students will follow the schedule below. Please remember that participation in classes via Teams is highly encouraged but not mandated. At the very least, students should log into Summit and get as much work done as they can. Facilitators can approve PFA's to be done from home on AMI days. CT teachers, however, will not approve PFA's on AMI days.

9:00-9:45 - 1st block

9:45-10:30 - 2nd block

10:30-11:00 - CT

11:00-12:00 Office Hours

12:00-1:00 Lunch

1:00-1:45 3rd block

1:45-2:30 4th block

2:30-3:00 Office Hours

Important Information for NCC Students

Please note that NCC follows the schedule of the Platte County School District including school closures for inclement weather. If the Platte County School District closes due to poor road conditions, excessive snow, or frigid temperatures, NCC will not be in session. NCC will communicate through email, Facebook, Twitter and the NCC website about closures. For the 22-23 school year, NCC will follow the PCR-3 plans shown below:

· Plan A (No School and No Remote Learning)

· Plan B (No School and No Remote Learning)

· Plan C (Inclement Weather Virtual Learning Day)

It is likely that we will not implement Plan C inclement weather days (no school with remote virtual learning) until we reach a threshold that would push the school year past four inclement weather days. We will always communicate what each day is via our website, email, Facebook, and Twitter.
