Weekly Updates

Back to school . happy group of kids wearing face mask and social distancing

Students are required to wear their own face coverings, which must comply with district dress code policy. Please have your child practice wearing a face covering during August so they can start to get used to wearing one. 

The Parkland School District is taking proactive steps to protect our schools during this infectious disease outbreak. It is the goal of the Parkland School District during this time period to strive to operate effectively and ensure all essential services are continuously provided and students are safe within our schools. Therefore, we are asking ALL parents to review the Return to School information found here .

 

SAFE at the bus stop. Please view the video below for proper bus procedures.

REMINDER

NO MORE BUS CARDS

You will no longer receive bus cards in the mail.  Instead, you will go to Home Access Center (HAC) to get this information. You will receive communication in mid-August regarding logging into Home Access Center (HAC). Once logged into HAC, you will be able to access your child’s bus, teacher and homeroom information, beginning August 24th.

BEFORE OR AFTER SCHOOL CARE / TRANSPORTATION

New Students: All new students will be assigned on a bus that transports to and from their home address. If you have before and/or after school care that is not located at your child’s home address, please contact our main office to communicate this information ASAP.

Returning Students: If your child is a returning Hedgehog, the information from last year will remain in your child’s bus information. If there is no change in your child’s before/after care, you will not need to contact our office. However, any changes need to be provided to us ASAP, so that we can update transportation information. Please contact our office at 610-351-5860 with updates and changes.

  • Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer for Free and Reduced Eligible Students

    The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides benefits, referred to as Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), to families of school-aged children who would have otherwise received free or reduced-priced meals if it were not for school closures. A family will receive the benefit amount of $5.70 for each school-aged child in their family for each day school has been closed since March 16, 2020, IF the student was eligible for free or reduced-price meals PRIOR to school closures.  For purposes of P-EBT calculations, June 12, 2020, is being used as the last day of the school year. 

    The Department of Health and Human Services anticipates beginning to mail the EBT cards around June 5, 2020.  All households will receive a separate mailing that describes P-EBT and provides households with contact information for any P-EBT-related questions.  If you have questions regarding our school meal program, please call Lori Seier, Director of Food Services, at 610-351-5671 or seierl1@parklandsd.org.
