Every teacher has a website that provides information about their classrooms.  To access the teacher websites, go to the Directory tab and click on the teacher’s website under their directory information.

School Messenger (for rapid communication) allows for automated call messages and emails to phone numbers and email addresses the parent or guardian has provided to the District.  To receive text messages, parents must opt-in by texting the word “yes” to 67587.  To view or change this contact information, parents need to submit a Student Update Form within Home Access Center (HAC). You will need your Home Access Center login and password to submit a Student Update Form. Both can be found on the Home Access Center welcome letter, received before the school year. You may also contact our main office to make the change.

Weekly e-Communication Every week throughout the school year, we will send updates on Schnecksville School news and happenings!  Please be sure to check the Weekly Update tab on this website. This is where we post important information, PTO news, upcoming events, and need-to-know school handouts. Please call the main office at 610-351-5830 if you are not receiving our weekly updates.

NEW Face-to-Face School Hours are 8:50 am – 3:00 pm. Doors open at 8:35 am.   Office is open from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm

Before or After School Care / Transportation  

All students attending Face-to-Face Learning in school are 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.

Student Arrival and Dismissal   

Students are encouraged to use bus transportation provided by the district.  If a student is driven to school, the designated parent drop-off location for the school must be utilized.  Parents may not park in the bus loop.  The parent drop-off and pick-up location is at the Main Entrance (by the flagpole).  Students may start entering the building at 8:35. Students who arrive after 8:50 am are considered tardy and must be signed in by a parent or designated guardian. 

Absentee Reporting Procedures

If your child is going to be late or absent, please call the absentee hotline at 610-351-5900, ext. 24711 OR email SVATTENDANCE@parklandsd.org by 9:00 am to report the absence. If you do not call or provide a written excuse, the absence is considered unlawful/unexcused.  Homework requests may also be left with the message.  Parents are requested to complete a Vacation/Emergency Permit for any planned or extended student absence from school.  A week’s notice must be given to complete homework for an absence of three days or more.  This form is available from the school office and on our district website. 

Students who arrive late or leave early

Any student who arrives late to school (after 8:50 am) or leaves early (before 3:00 pm) from school must have a parent sign them in or out and that person may be required to show identification.  Please note that parents are not to enter the main building due to security reasons, unless requested to do so by the school office.  A written request from the parent is necessary for a student to leave school early.  These requests should be given to the classroom teacher in the morning.  Upon the parent’s arrival, the child will then be called from class to meet their parent in the lobby.  Whenever possible, please avoid changes to a student’s dismissal plan once the school day has begun.  In all cases, students will be released only to their custodial parent unless written or verbal permission from the custodial parent is received to do otherwise.  That person may be required to show identification.

Administration of Medication

The school nurse will administer medications to students during the school day with parental and/or physician permission when necessary.  Parents must complete a “Medical Authorization Form” before any medication can be dispensed at school.  In addition, parents are required to bring the medication to school.  Medication should not be sent to school with a student.  These procedures are mandatory to ensure the proper and safe administration of medications.
