Park Hall's Weekly Updates

August 22, 2022

Important Notes for the Week of August 22, 2022

Park Hall families,

Welcome back! We are excited to start another school year. In order to start the year off successfully we have a few reminders.


  1. The buses will be running late for the first few days. All of our buses drop off for two schools prior to coming to Park Hall. Each school takes extra time to ensure all students are on the correct bus. This causes delays. Please be patient this first week.
  2. Please bring your school supplies to Open House with your child's name on them.
  3. We are asking families to check the bus stop locator link to look up their child's bus number and approximate pick-up and drop-off times and locations. Please provide this number to your child's teacher. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT IF YOUR CHILD IS GOING HOME ON A DIFFERENT BUS THAN COMING TO SCHOOL.
  4. Breakfast at Park Hall will remain free for ALL students everyday. Lunch however will require families to fill out the Free and Reduced Meal Application or students will be billed for each lunch.
  5. The Home Access Center will be open on August 19 at 5:00 pm. Families can see their child's teacher and classroom number. If you forgot your username or password, please contact Ms. Bell in the main office at 301-863-4054 extension 0, or email mlbell@smcps.org.
  6. Parent Pick-up window hangers will be available during Open House in the front lobby of the school.
