Park High School is known for its quality of education, its exceptional faculty, and its 21st century facility. We are academically rigorous, while recognizing that each young woman and man brings to us a unique self, with a unique history, capabilities, and interests. Students, when you leave this school on graduation day, you leave as adults. We challenge you to be full participants in your education so that all doors leading to your future are open to you.

Principals Scalia and Dust
As we come to the mid-term of quarter 1 this week, we want to thank our families and students for working with us in making incremental changes to reopen. If you were to walk in our school building on any given day, you would see students socializing, learning and practicing safe hygiene in relation to Covid. Rangers – you are inspiring! Because of safe practices and family and community cooperation, our next step, with approval from the County Health Department, is allowing up to four spectators per player at games and a limited student section - with masks and physical distancing. We are still not allowing parents from opposing teams outside our county at games and we continue to encourage parents to not attend games in counties where there is community spread of Covid-19. See Mr. Par’s great video on Facebook! We are currently working with the Health Department on ways we might incorporate music and choir in a safe way.
While we hope and are working on plans to fully reopen, we know that technology will be in our lives as we stay home for even simple illnesses or are required to quarantine. Thank you for your communication and patience. For technology issues, we have an incredible team across the school district working on Tech Integration and troubleshooting. Sarah Dahl is the District Technology Integration Specialist and she has teams of Tech Coaches at each school. At PHS, your go-to people are:

Holiday COVID Prevention Tips from Paula Coleman, PCP and Heather DiCross, MD at LHC
The holiday season (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year’s Day) is right around the corner and I think we are all ready to gather with loved ones and enjoy some festivity. If you are considering getting together with friends or family consider these healthy holiday tips for spreading joy and not germs.
· Stick with the basics: Effective handwashing to the tune of jingle bells, before and after eating and anytime you touch your nose or mouth.
· Remember your mask: A mask should be worn for indoor activities with friends or family outside of your household especially when a 6 ft social distance can’t be maintained. Consider limiting gatherings where food or drink are included or share your holiday meal on Zoom.
· Consider not traveling this year. Have that stay-cation you’ve talked about.
· If you’re planning to travel or have guests from afar determine your risks. Websites like coronavirus.jhu.edu and coronavirus.gov can give you guidance on what counties and states have higher risk rates of spread. Our local public health department can also help you determine your risks. You can reach public health at 222-4145
· Consider staying in a hotel or RV if you travel instead of in family or friend’s houses. Sharing a household over an extended period of time is a high risk activity for spreading COVID.
Parents, we are hard at work creating this year’s Park High yearbook and we need your help! Download the Yearbook Snap app to upload your photos from fall sports, activities, and other snapshots of student life, and we can use them in this year’s book. Go to www.yearbookforever.com to order your child a copy for $50 before prices go up in the spring. See http://www.parkhigh.org/yearbook.html for more information of all things yearbook.
Be aware of what your student is doing on their phone. These 9 apps are sneaky and can be dangerous to your teen.
