Learning Never Closes at Parkside!
Learning Never Closes at Parkside! Online Instruction is up and running as of March 30th. At this time our calendar for Virtual Learning will be extended to the end of the school year which is June 2nd. The systems seem to working very well and our staff has done an amazing job at continuing your child’s education through this online platform. Please know all of us are available to provide you guidance and support as we finish this school year.
Virtual Learning continues to occur on a daily basis and students are getting really great at interacting with their teachers through this portal. Most teachers are having Virtual meetings with their classes through TEAMS or Zoom. This has been a great way for our students and staff to stay connected. Please continue to have your child access their Clever portal each day to ensure they are being counted for attendance and then going into Canvas for the classroom assignments. There are several ways to reach us if you need assistance, but the first go to will always be your teacher. You can access email addresses for all Parkside staff by clicking on School Staff Directory under Contact Us in the menu above. If your child did not receive a device during the two distribution days designated by the District, please reach out to our school to set an appointment to receive a device. Due to the new directive of schools being closed, you must reach out to us via email or phone (754) 322-7850 to schedule an appointment where an administrative staff will meet you to provide you with a device. You must come to the school with your child’s log in information as well as a mask for protection. Technical assistance will still be available remotely through a District call center which can be reached at 754-321-0569 or on site at one of the following schools: Onsite services will be provided on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the following schools: Coconut Creek HS, McArthur HS, South Broward HS, Deerfield Beach HS, Nova HS, Sunrise MS, Flanagan HS, Planation HS, and Taravella HS. They should be able to help you with all technical issues. Please remember, your first contact should be your teacher when dealing with academic concerns.
Teachers will be posting curricular activities using Canvas. Technical support for Canvas for parents and students can be found on the links
below. Our school is working very closely with our District’s Academics Department to provide the best possible instruction to our students. Our staff is here to support you throughout this process. All teachers have office hours where they will be available to assist you and your children. Please click here to view STAFF OFFICE HOURS.
Students are expected to ALL follow acceptable technology usage on any devices that are issued by the school board and using school board programs. Please click on this link to see the expected use guidelines for technology and here to view expectations for Social Media: Think B4U Post!
Daily attendance will be taken for all students. Students are required to sign-on to their Single Sign-on and go into Canvas in order for the student to be counted present every day. Students will have the opportunity to go on between 12:01 am -11:59 pm. If the student does not log on, he/she will be counted absent. This absent will then trigger a District Robot call reporting an absence. Students must log off of their Clever platform daily and sign-in again the following day. If they do not follow this step, the will be counted absent. The District is also tracking Canvas engagement and assignments through Canvas. Students who have not been engaging with the teacher or turning in assignments may be flagged. This is in order to see how we can help support you if your child is struggling.

Parkside will continue to be a feeding site for families but our days and hours have changed. The new days and hours are Monday and Wednesday from 10 am-1 pm. At this time you will receive enough meals for breakfast and lunch for the week.
