Dear Park Hill Families,

Sign up for the Park Hill Elementary Directory today!!

Use this link to enter or confirm your family’s information: www.Join.myschoolanywhere.com.
Enter the join code: 802201229.

The Park Hill Elementary Directory is run by the PTSA. Listing your family’s information in the directory is voluntary.  DPS requires families confirm their info each year.  Once you have signed up, you can access directory info online or with a mobile app.

If you aren’t sure if you have signed up, give it a try.  The system will tell you if you are already signed up and will tell you how to update your student’s info.  It only takes 2 minutes. No passwords are needed to sign up.

So far, about 40% of students are signed up. We need you to make it a success!  Don’t miss out on parties, play dates or carpools

Questions?  Contact Alicia at directory@parkhillelementary.org.

Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run will be held at Park Hill this fall for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Registration opens August 25th at 4 pm and space is limited.  Please see attached flyer for more information on dates and times.

Attendance and Tardy Expectations for all Parents

If your child is late, it is required that parents/guardians come into the office with your child to sign them in for the day.  Any students who come in late due to a dental or doctor appointment, will need a note from the dentist or doctor’s office.

Please call the main school phone number, 720-424-4910, to report an absence for the day letting us know your child’s name, classroom teacher, and reason for absence.  Also call the school office if you are going to be more than 15 minutes late at the beginning  of the school day.

If your child is going to be away from school for more than a day, we need that information in writing turned into the office before you leave.

We have received a number of phone calls from parents already about being absent on the first day of school because they will not have returned from their summer vacation or they will be somewhere else watching the eclipse.  Please call the office and leave a message or send Ann Kurth, ann_kurth@dpsk12.org, a message letting us know why your child or children are not here on the first day.  We can record absences in advance.

August 11 – Last day to register students online.  If you are not able to register your student online by this date, you will need to come to school to complete the paper registration on Monday, August 14 between 7:30 am and 3:00 pm.

August 12 – Park Hill Pride Clean Up Day

We would love to have some volunteers on Saturday from 9 am -11 am to spend some time cleaning and shining up the playground for the start of the new school year! A little mulching. A little painting. Some weed pulling. Simple tasks that just require someone getting it done. Kids are welcome and encouraged to join in!
