Principal's Message

       UPDATE,  FEBRUARY, 2020


Dear Parents:

      We started our annual fundraiser on February 10.  This year, students will be asked to sell phone holders (pop sockets) for $8 each.  Twenty different designs are available.  If each student could sell at least two, our fundraiser will be successful.  Students will bring home an order form with color pictures of all the designs.  Checks should be made payable to Parkway Local Schools.  Thanks for your support of this fundraiser!

      Flu season has arrived at our school.  Please instruct your children to wash their hands frequently and thoroughly as this is the best way to prevent the spread of the flu.  If your child is not feeling well, it may be best to keep them home as a precaution.  We will make sure they get caught up on lessons missed!

      In order to make entrance into the school at the beginning of the day safer, you are asked to use the available parking spaces if you want to escort your child into the building.  Please do not park along the curb.  Thank you for your cooperation!

      You are reminded to call the office by 9:00 a.m. for absences, even if it is for a doctor’s appointment.  All absences must be called by 9:00 a.m. The absence line is on 24 hours a day.  Thank you for your cooperation!

      Normally at this time of year, High 5 and Parkway Elementary are gearing up for the Spring Carnival.  The Carnival will now be held in the fall—October 3, 2020.  Please mark your calendars!  It is our hope that the move to the fall will make this terrific event even better!
