Picture Retakes for hybrid students will take place during their face-to-face days next week on Monday 11/2 and Friday 11/6. 

  • If your student is having their photo RETAKEN, please return their original package with them on the Retake Day. 
  • If this is the FIRST PHOTO for your student, please be sure their teacher knows that they need their photo taken on Retake Day. You may still pre-order photos at the pre-order price, or wait for the proof to be sent and order then at regular price. 
  • If you have any questions or have not received your original photos yet, please contact Christmas City Studios directly at 610-691-2109.

PTO News:  

The PTO Board is considering amending the PTO Bylaws.  An amended version of the Bylaws has been prepared and will be discussed at the next PTO meeting on Friday, November 13, 2020, at 9:30 a.m.  The Amended Bylaws are included HERE for all parents' review.  Any suggested revisions to the Amended Bylaws will be discussed at the November 13th meeting.  If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to comment on the Amended Bylaws, please contact Kelly Sullivan at krsulliv@yahoo.com prior to the November 13th meeting.  A vote on whether to adopt the Amended Bylaws will be held at the PTO Meeting on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at 7 pm.  The final version of the Amended Bylaws will be sent out through a future e-communication for all parents' review prior to the January 13th vote.

All FamiliesDid you know that  ALL Parkland students are eligible to receive free breakfast and free lunch each instructional school day through December 31st, 2020?

The change in programming is the result of USDA announcing an extension to the national waivers, which allow all students to receive free meals during the pandemic.  This change also applies to our “Meals to Go” program, which allows parents to sign up and pick up meals to go every Wednesday for the days their students are not physically present in school. Orders are due by 9 AM on Sunday for Wednesday pickup between 10-11 am.  Meal Order Form HERE. Questions concerning the change in our program should be directed to 610-351-5670 or seierl1@parklandsd.org.  Note:  A la carte menu items still will be available for purchase and if you have money in your MySchoolBucks.com accounts, it will be able to be used for those items and meals in the new year when this program is scheduled to expire.
