Parkway e-News Story

School Starts August 13!

How can you get your family ready for the new school year in less than two weeks? Our back- to-school guide covers the basics and will help you and your kids ease back into the first day on August 13. *****

Bus Routes

Need to find your child’s bus stop and pick-up time? Look the information up quickly on Parkway’s web site through e-Link, an online information system. Just enter your street address, and you’ll be able to find the bus routes and approximate pick-up and drop-off times for your child. To access e-Link, go to www.pkwy.k12.mo.us/map/address.cfm and then log in with the user name and password of Guest.

Emergency Alerts

Want to receive important information about school closings, emergencies and school events? If the district has your correct phone number and email address, you can receive voice or email messages about emergencies, thanks to AlertNow, an automated notification system. Please include your current numbers and email addresses on your student’s pupil information form, and notify your school if changes occur.  Watch for more details the first week of school.

Lunch Menus

Look to see what’s on the lunch and breakfast menu each day at all Parkway schools and find the nutritional analysis of each meal by visiting our web site: www.pkwy.k12.mo.us/foodservice/menu.html. You’ll also be able to see your child’s lunch account balance at www.pkwy.k12.mo.us/foodservice/accounts/account.cfm.

Immunizations Must be on File by Aug. 13

By law, all required immunizations must be on file with the school nurse by Aug. 13, 2007, for students to attend classes.  If you receive a notice from your child's school nurse that one or more immunizations is required, please be sure your child is immunized and documentation from the doctor or clinic is provided to the school nurse before classes begin on Aug. 13.  Please contact your school with any questions.

Have the Right Stuff?

Find out what school supplies your child needs for the first weeks of class by visiting our web site at www.pkwy.k12.mo.us/schools/supplyPortal.cfm.  Most of our schools have the school supply lists online.
