Emergency Test


Parkway will conduct a test of its emergency communications system for all parents this Thursday, October 6 at 6:30 p.m. 

You will receive phone, email and text messages. If you have downloaded the Parkway mobile app and are logged in, a message and alert will also appear in your inbox on the app.

This is how we will communicate in the event of an emergency or school closing due to weather. If you need to update your contact information, login to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal here.
