Parkway e-News Story

School Starts Tuesday, August 16!

The first day of school, August 16, is right around the corner! We can help you get ready with important updates about bus schedules, school meals, supply lists and more. Keep reading for more details or browse through our Back-to-School website.  

Our parent Back-to-School website is a "one-stop shop" with the following topics and more:

Bus Schedules & Safety Info
With a few clicks of the mouse, parents can find their students' bus routes and approximate pick-up and drop-off times. Visit Parkway’s eLink online transportation information page and log in with the user name and password of Guest.

Postcards with bus information should also be received via U.S. mail on or about August 12. Students who enrolled in school after August 3 can receive bus information by calling the transportation department at (314) 415-8400. 

View frequently asked questions from the American School Bus Council or read the top 10 bus safety rules in Parkway's 2011 Back 2 School publication.

School Meals
Look to see what’s on the lunch and breakfast menu each day at all Parkway schools. You can find the nutritional analysis and allergy guide for each meal and see your child’s lunch account balance. There is also information about the new online payment system.

School Supply Lists and Tax Holiday Info
Find out what school supplies your child needs for the first weeks of class by visiting our school supply website. Don't forget about the Sales Tax Holiday August 5-7. Certain back-to-school purchases such as clothing, school supplies and computers are exempt from sales tax. Some Missouri cities have elected not to participate. For more details visit the Missouri Department of Revenue website.

Read Back 2 School, a parent’s guide to the 2011-12 school year, which was mailed to all families recently. It contains a directory of schools, the school calendar, student health and attendance policies, parent notices, Parkway’s discipline policy and much more. Click here for a printer-friendly version.
