LEAD Innovation Studio

Vol. 4, Issue 18 - January 8, 2021


Community is a core value of LEAD, and one we have particularly focused on this year as we experience unprecedented challenges. This week's events underscore the importance of Community, and of caring for and looking out for one another. At LEAD we value each of our students as individuals, and appreciate what they bring to our community. We believe that conversation, collaboration, teamwork, and a connection to our community will benefit all of us. We believe that each student and staff member belongs here.

Thank you,

Dr. Stanley

Starting on January 4, Park Hill School District started to offer antigen testing to students who have COVID-19 symptoms. We already offer this to staff members. If your child has symptoms, please contact the school nurse to schedule a test.

If your child is experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 and are wanting to have them tested, here's how:

1.) Must be a student in the Park Hill School District.

2.) Must have symptoms.

3.) Call LEAD Nurses at 359-4134 for a referral to the testing site.

4.) Click and print this consent form (fill out prior to appointment).

Please contact the LEAD nurses if your child has an exposure or symptoms of Covid, or if you have any health or wellness concerns at any time.

10th, 11th and 12th grade LEAD A+ students can now sign up to tutor their peers, either face to face or virtually, and get A+ hours for their time and effort! If your student would like to tutor, they need to fill out the A+ Tutors Application which can be found under the Resources tab in their Schoology LEAD A+ group.

If you feel that your child could benefit from meeting with a tutor, they can sign up for one in Summit. Please have your student follow these directions to access the request form:

  • Open Summit and in the left blue field, select the 20-21 LEAD Homeroom course
  • Scroll down to the LEAD Info and Useful Documents
  • Select LEAD Community
  • Scroll down to Resources and select the LEAD Tutoring request

Our goal is to have a tutor assigned to the request in one work week.
