Panthers: Due to weather conditions and potential for worsening roads, tomorrow (Friday, Feb 5th) will be a SNOWDAY. This means it will be a snow day for ALL students (both virtual and in-person classes are canceled). PELC childcare will be open. Stay safe PSD! #weareparchment
PSD: We will be holding a virtual, asynchronous day on Tuesday, Feb 2nd for our staff to be vaccinated. Students will have work to complete at home from their teachers. Thank you for being flexible with this important change!
PSD: Please review our snow day policy in regards to our hybrid model. Mr. Misner has explained what will happen IF we get a snow day this year. #weareparchment *Image Transcription* 1/25/21 Good Afternoon, We wanted to take a moment to update you on snow days and how they will look in the event one is warranted. We will still have snow days on scheduled in-person instructional days. This means that ALL classes in the Parchment School District would be canceled for that day if the conditions warrant a closure. This is for both in-person and virtual/remote instruction. This means that ALL students would have a snow day if one is called. Let me be clear, we have NOT called a snow day! This is just solidifying what it would be like IF we have conditions that require an emergency closure due to weather. Respectfully, Jason Misner Superintendent

Attention PHS: We have some GREAT NEWS! The USDA has extended free breakfast and lunch meals to all students learning at school, or at home until the end of the school year. However, we still need ALL high school families to fill out an online school meal application as soon as possible to ensure additional State and Federal supplemental programs and funding for the building. Without each student having a dedicated meal eligibility, these additional funds are in jeopardy. Meal eligibility can also make PHS students eligible for certain fee waivers like testing, college application, and scholarship opportunities outside of school so this is very important to have on file. All of the other buildings in the district will be completing a Household Income Statement for their individual building funds and not the online meal application. Therefore, if you have students at PHS and another district building, you will be filling out the online meal application AND the Household Information Report. This is just how the Federal guidelines work! Please complete an online meal application this week at www.lunchapp.com so we can meet our deadline to submit data for these additional program funds. Please call 269-250-8928 or email our food services director at email@example.com if you have any questions. The link to our food application can be found on: https://www.lunchapp.com/StartAnApplication
