Weekly Updates 2021-22 School Year
september 23, 2021
1. NEW CALLER ID for DISTRICT CALLS - Effective immediately, any calls sent through Schoolmessenger, the District's Rapid Notification System, will appear with a new caller ID number which is 1-866-783-1413. It will appear as SCHOOLMESSENGER 1-866-783-1413 on your phones (instead of a 610-xxx-xxxx number) when your phone is ringing. If a person misses a call and calls the number back, the automated system will allow the caller to listen to the last 10 messages that were sent to that phone number from Parkland School District or a Parkland school.
2. MIDDLE SCHOOL FALL SOCIALS are happening on Friday night in lieu of the Dances at OMS and SMS. OMS will be on the football stadium that night and SMS will be at the PHS Turf for games, fun and social time outdoors! Make sure you get tickets at lunch time, which are $5. Both events will take place on Friday, September 24, 6-7:30 PM.
3. The KINDNESS CRUSADE that we had intended to occur next Saturday, October 2nd, has been postponed to the spring. Stay tuned for a new date!
4. St. Luke’s YESS! (Your Emotional Strength Supported!) School-based Therapy 5-part webinar series - Looking for some tips to help your child/students throughout the school year? Consider registering for the YESS! 5-part webinar series! Get tips on how to handle COVID-related concerns, how to recognize when children need some mental health help, or dealing with anxiety. And, if you missed last night's Parent University Program that was focused on Teen Parenting, you can check on the recorded session at the bottom of the page here.
