Weekly Communication Folders are sent home each Thursday, to be returned on Friday. Inside the folders you will find your student's weekly homework. Your student is expected to complete all homework AND read 20 minutes each night. Homework is turned in on Thursdays and will be graded.
Download and use Classroom Dojo to communicate with your student's teacher!
Teachers will be using Classroom Dojo to reward positive behaviors. Students earn points and are able to "shop" with their points to purchase items. Teachers also use Classroom DoJo to send quick text messages when needed.
- Students brought home their login information Thursday.

Uniforms at Park Street Elementary

Arrival / Dismissal
Change of Transportation
If there is a change in transportation arrangements, we require notice from the parent before allowing students to be transported by anyone other than a parent. You may send in a note with your child or email email@example.com with the details of the change. We do not allow students to walk or to ride home with unauthorized people.
At dismissal time bus riders will be put on the school bus unless a parent is present for pick-up, or the parent has notified the school office of another arrangement.
Students are not permitted to change buses to ride home with friends without a note from their parent. Please make arrangements for your child before he/she comes to school. If you must make a change during the day, notify the school office staff before 2:30 p.m.
Pick-up by Car in the Afternoon
Anyone picking up a child must have his/her Panther Car Tag. If you do not have a Panther Car Tag, you may get one at Sneak-A-Peek or by coming to the front office.
Please do not park across the street and have your child designated as a “walker”.
This is extremely dangerous, and teachers on duty will stop children crossing the street
unescorted by a parent or adult. If you need to come into the building, please park in a parking space.
When a student arrives late (after 8:30), an adult must sign the student in at the office.
Please limit early pick-up of children to emergencies and appointments. If a child is out for any portion of the school day, the missed time is recorded as a tardy. A note sent in the morning will help us to have your child ready. To avoid interruptions to instruction, no student
will be released between 2:45 and 3:15. Parents will be asked to wait for the dismissal bell. Come to the office to check out a student. Please be prepared to present photo identification upon request. No student will be released to an unknown or unauthorized person.
Students waiting to be picked up will be supervised until 3:30. After 3:30 they may be sent to the After School Program if they are pre-registered ($10 fee). Regular after school charges will apply. Many parents sign up for the program so their children can attend in case of emergency.
