National Farm to School Month
October is National Farm to School Month! Park City School District Child Nutrition Department is celebrating, come join us! Teaching children about food, and where it comes from is important to us. The Child Nutrition Department works with local distributors to purchase as many food items as possible locally. Some of the items that we purchase locally now are; milk, bread, and some of our produce like peaches, and apples. We always strive to find products that help us support our local community, and great quality. This month we will are privileged to receiving Gala Apples from Rowley Farms in Utah County. Throughout the month of October we will be serving crisp delicious gala apples. Come try the local food today, and support the district Farm to School Movement. Check back with us on Facebook on more local items we are doing!

PCSD School Board votes to go to bond in November
In a unanimous vote at their Tuesday, August 18th board meeting, the governing board of the Park City School District adopted a resolution for a special bond election to be held on November 3, 2015. The proposition states that the issuance is “not to exceed $56-million dollars to finance the acquisition of land, acquire, construct, furnish and equip new school facilities and improve existing facilities and related improvements; and related matters.”
At total cost $66,306,336, which includes the following in this ranking order with the first project ranking the highest:
- PCHS Expansion including gymnasium remodel - $27,500,000
- New 5/6 School at EHMS Campus - $24,800,000
- McPolin Student Safety Improvements - $1,400,000
- Treasure Mountain Junior High Demolition - $606,336
- Athletic Facilities Improvements - $12,000,000
The financial bond strategy also includes using $10,306,336 of the capital reserve.
In addition, the board agreed to add specific language in the Bond Resolution that includes a commitment toward community partnerships to explore transportation solutions for student safety.
“The board’s vote tonight is a groundbreaking step in meeting the demands for our student learning needs and accommodating our growing school district,” says PCSD Superintendent Dr. Ember Conley. “This action is further proof that board is committed to doing what is best for our students, and to providing excellent and innovative education to all grades,” she adds.
In 1999, voters accepted a $30,000,000 bond that constructed Ecker Hill Middle School and Jeremy Ranch Elementary. Currently, the district is financially healthy and has successfully repaid all debt.
Two public hearings have been scheduled, focused on the bond process and educating the public:
- September 22, 6 pm: School District Administrative Offices. Focus of Public Hearing: explaining cost impact and details of bond.
- October 20, 6 pm: School District Administrative Offices
