On Monday, you should receive an email from our school which will identify your child's teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. Your teachers have been very busy at school for the past week preparing for your student's return to school and setting up exciting learning environments, while also learning about many new strategies, resources and programs to bring your children the best learning experiences!
This year presents many challenges, however we have planned and prepared to provide a safe and productive learning environment for your students at Tiffany Ridge and for our students who will be learning through our online learning option. ALL of our Timberwolves are important parts of our team! In just two weeks we will be learning together!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Please see the special edition of the Timberwolf Times that was sent to the community.
Back to School and Parent Orientation Night: VIRTUAL in 2020
Our traditional Back to School Night and Parent Orientation will be held in a virtual format this year. Each teacher has created a welcome video so that your student can "meet" their teacher along with a presentation to orient you to your student's classroom. This video will provide you with important highlights about classroom expectations, curriculum, and more! This information will be sent to you by email on September 3rd.
Kindergarten Kickoff: NEW Date!
Students may bring their lunch from home or purchase a school lunch from the cafeteria. Menus are sent home on a monthly basis. You can access your child’s lunch account at www.schoolcafe.com.
Classroom Treats: To protect the health and safety of our students, homemade treats will not be distributed to students in the Park Hill School District. Due to allergies, food intolerances, and current health and safety guidelines, please consult your classroom teacher before sending any treats to school.
2020-2021 Free and Reduced Lunch Applications
Student Transportation Information
For the safety of all our Timberwolves, communication is the key! Please be sure that you communicate with your child’s teacher the details of your child’s mode of dismissal transportation. Families must establish their child as one of the following:
- Bus rider: Your student's ID badge will designate their bus information. A sticker with their bus number will be placed on the back of the badge on the first day of school. Please confirm your child's bus number with his/her teacher.
- Car rider (loop A/B): All families will receive a car name tag to place in the front car window to assist teachers assisting with student pick-up.
- Walker or Bike Rider
- Adventure Club
During the year, please notify the school office of any transportation changes prior to 2:00pm. Thank you for your assistance!
Additional Bus rider information: On August 31st, our transportation coordinator, Lana Dudzinski, will be sending an email with information about accessing your student’s bus information. Our recommendation is for you to contact First Student if you have any concerns regarding your student’s stop. First Student can be reached at 816-741-4023 or contact Kay Burnos at email@example.com.
Health Room - Medication
Reminder from the health room: All students need to be up to date on immunizations BEFORE starting school on September 8th. Documentation of immunizations or scheduled appointment must be turned into the health room regardless if the student has elected to do online learning. No exceptions will be made. Please call the health room with any questions or concerns at (816)359-4404.
Infinite Campus - Parent Portal
Park Hill School District uses Infinite Campus as our student information system. You can
access your child’s essential school information and district information quickly!
This includes Attendance, Grades, Schedule, Bus Information, Technology Fees and School Communications.
To be able to access your child’s information, you must set up an account. You will need to log-in and enter the GUID code, followed by setting up your own username and password.
Infinite Campus organizes students by household, so you can access your family in just one account. If you have questions, need technical support, or have misplaced your unique access key code, feel free to call us at 816-359-4400.
