    Message from Mrs. Hall

    Congratulations on successfully making it through your first week of "home schooling" your children online.  I know that there have been a lot of challenges as we all learn to navigate through our new normal for learning.  Please continue to be patient as we learn alongside you.  Please know that we are here for you in anyway.

    Beginning on Monday, April 6th, all school offices will be closed until May 1st.  Even though our school building will not be open, we ALL are still working virtually from home.  At this moment, the best way to contact us would be through email.  You can find all of our staff's email by going to our website  Click on contact us, then staff directory.  We are working with the District on availability of our phone system to be put in place very soon.  Please remember, most of your concerns can be addressed by contacting your child's teacher first.   

    I am receiving on a daily basis notification of student's log-in status.  Some of you may be receiving phone calls about this same information.  We realize that some of this is not accurate, there still have been a number of students who have not logged on to Clever and Canvas.  This is your expectation for your children and their learning.  If your child continues to not be engaged, he/she will continue to create a large gap in their learning.  Teachers & staff understand your challenges with this process and we are here to help, but if the students are not on, we cannot provide this assistance.  Please make sure your child goes on to Clever Daily for instruction.

    Parkside will still continue to be a food distribution site during this time.  We will be serving breakfast from 8-10 am and lunch from 11-1 pm.  This is a drive-up process and easy way to feed your family.  If you are interested, all families are welcome.  In order to receive a meal, the individuals must be present in the car.  Please take advantage of this during these trying times. 

    I want to thank our security staff, cafeteria workers, clerical staff and Mr. Montoya for working so hard this week taking care of our parents and students.  We really appreciate their support.

    Please make sure your kids are looking on Canvas at their lessons and announcements each day.  I try to post something to the students and recognize the birthdays.  Please go to our website at for all the information on Learning Never Closes and very important links you will need for this adventure. Please click here to view our staff office hours. 

    Hope you all have a great weekend and Thanks for being apart of Parkside's Virtual learning where we are proud to be panthers.
