Breakfast is always an important meal (especially during PSSA testing)!

Starting out the day with a healthy breakfast heightens student achievement.  Over the next few weeks, students will be preparing and taking required exams.  This is a reminder that all Parkland School District Schools have breakfast available for students. Give it a try!!! Some things you may not know about breakfast at Parkland.

  • Breakfast is available for ALL students
  • The breakfast menu is listed on the Elementary Lunch Menu
  • A breakfast includes milk, fruit or juice, and a whole grain product (cereal, pancake, bagel, etc.)
  • Students use the same account they use for lunch
  • Students who receive free or reduced lunch also receive free or reduced breakfast ($.30)
  • Breakfast is also available at both middle schools and the high school
  • Paid breakfasts are $1.10 and you can use your existing “Caftrac” account

The Parkland Food Service Department will be doing promotions and giveaways through the district in April.  We will be giving away a HD Television and Nook. More information will be sent to you shortly.  Good luck to all students who will be taking tests over the next few weeks. If you have any questions about breakfast, please contact us at or 610-351-5670.

Parent Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedure

Dear Ironton Parents,

The winter weather has made its presence known in the past few months, causing a number of challenges for all of us!  One of the challenges taking place at Ironton School involves parent drop-off and pick-up in Ironton’s parking lot at the back of the school.

  • Please be sure to park solely in the designated parking spots when dropping off or picking up your child at school.
  • Parking in undesignated areas has created hazardous situations which are compromising the safety of our students.
  • Please wait patiently in the flow of traffic and do not allow your child to exit your vehicle until your car is pulled up next to the portable classrooms.  Mr. Defazio will then monitor your child’s safe exit from your car to the parking lot and into the building.

While we all understand that schedules are especially demanding and it is frustrating to wait in a line of traffic, I know that our common priority is the safety of ALL Ironton students. Thank you for taking an active role in keeping our boys and girls safe at school!

Lynette C. Smith, Principal
