KIDS JUST SHOW UP AND THEY EAT FOR FREE
Who says there is no such thing as a free breakfast or lunch? This summer free meals are possible at McPolin Elementary School (2270 Kearns Blvd) in Park City! The only catch is that you must be 18 years old or younger to participate. From June 15 until July 23, breakfast and lunch will be served Monday through Thursday. Breakfast will be from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
All children are welcome -- No child will be turned away.
Last year, the program served over 2,000 meals over the course of the summer. The district is excited to help ensure kids have access to nutritious meals this summer. It is also a great way to help stretch the family food budget. The Summer Food Program is federally funded and administered locally by the Park City School Nutrition Program.
For more information, contact Elizabeth Strasser, Park City School District-Child Nutrition Department, at 435-615-0224.
The USDA and the Park City School District are non-discriminatory providers.
HealthierUS School Challenge
Congratulations to two of Park City's very own schools! USDA has just informed us that the District’s application for recognition as a HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) bronze level has been approved for the following schools:
McPolin Elementary School, Parleys Park Elementary School
The USDA commends these schools for the exemplary steps, leadership and team work employed to make changes to their nutrition environment; improve the quality of the foods served; provide students with more nutritious, healthy choices; and enhance their physical activity program. To acknowledge their achievement, each school will receive a HUSSC award plaque, a banner to display, and a monetary incentive award of $500 for bronze level achievement. Also, each school has been proudly added to the HUSSC awardees list on the Team Nutrition HUSSC website at
Congratulations to McPolin and Parleys. All of your hard work to provide a healthy school environment is paying off.
Immediate Release: PCHS Library
The high school library is being repurposed, not torn down. The area will still remain for student collaboration, teacher work areas for classes, and increased usage for the space. It will also house the PCCAPS Program for two of the eight classes. E-books, not e-readers, will be offered free of charge to all students with full usage through the student computers. PCCAPS had a 2-year lease in the current facility. The lease expired and Park City School District had to find a new location for the program. Park City School District Leadership and Board had a desire to move it back in the high school. We explored possible locations in the high school and determined that the media center was the best location as it has decreased in utilization and desire it to be an area of collaboration and learning. Students will still have access and more collaborative space. In addition, the PCHS Media Specialist was forward thinking and has been working with administration to increase utilization. PCSD has secured an e-book resource to provide student access to books because we have seen a continual decrease of physical books being utilized and an increase of e-books. In fact, we have secured a grant with Overdrive, which is a regional grant through our regional education service center, which will allow shared access to collections that include fiction, non-fiction, and reference e-books. In addition, we are using a portion of the media funds to acquire licenses specific to Park City School District K-12 for these e-book resources. We are encouraged by the involvement of the community and invite interested individuals to participate in the programming of the schools and the media centers, as we work through the Master Planning Process.

As we move closer to Memorial Day, our high school is preparing for it's seventh annual Memorial 5K sponsored by the PCHS National Honor Society. This will take place on Monday, May 25th to remember those we have lost.
In May of 2009, the National Honor Society teamed up with the Park City 5 (parkcity5.com) to hold a 5K to honor the memories of five PCHS graduates who all passed away within seven months of each other in 2008. We continue to honor their lives as well as many who have passed away since.
The money raised this year will support continued humanitarian projects abroad for those in need, provide scholarships for graduating seniors, and give financial aide to the Homeless Youth Center of Utah. Over the past seven years, we have taken many of our Park City youth to Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, India, Haiti, and this summer we will be traveling to Guatemala.
We would love to have the support from our community and continue our tradition of a 5K on Memorial Day. Come and join us for a great morning and make it an annual event by signing up as a family or as an individual on our website:
Thank you for your continued support,
Park City High School National Honor Society
Park City School District is seeking input to the Master Planning topics of discussion. We value your opinions and encourage you to provide ideas and comments on topics. Please use the email address, email@example.com, to provide your comments. The comments will then be reviewed by the Master Planning Committee during a regular meeting. Minutes of the meetings will be available after they are approved by the committee.

Details of Lockdown Procedures
On Tuesday, March 24th at 6:00 PM in the PCHS Lecture Hall, the Park City School District, Park City Police Department, and Summit County Sheriff's Office will provide an overview to parents and community members on details of the lock down on Friday afternoon and provide an update on the current investigation.
Park City School District is providing an opt-out form for parents that do not want their student(s) to participate in state level testing.
For details and the opt-out form, please see our Consent for Non-Participation in State Level Testing page.
Park City School District schools will be open on all regularly scheduled school days unless circumstances create health or safety issues. We fully expect our schools to be open and functioning normally throughout the winter, but weather conditions can vary greatly in different neighborhoods and on different streets. We encourage parents to make attendance decisions for their children based on their specific ability to get to school safely.
Additionally, if your contact information has recently changed, please contact your local school with current information. This will enable the school and/or the district to notify you in the event of a late start, closure, or early release.
Again, we fully expect our schools to be open, but we will notify parents if that changes. If you hear nothing, you can safely assume your school is open. If you are concerned about your child’s ability to safely travel to school, please exercise your parental discretion to make the decision that is best for your family.
If severe weather conditions or other events force a school closure, delayed start, or early release, the following procedures will be implemented.
We will notify parents via the local news media, the district website, social media sites, and possibly email, text, or phone in the event of a delayed start, early release, or closure. If you hear nothing, you can assume your school is open. Parents and employees should listen to local news media outlets for information. Authorization will come from the superintendent or his/her designee.
All school closures, delayed starts, or early releases are for one day only.
No announcement means schools are open and regular schedules will be followed.
Parents are encouraged to create an emergency plan for their students. Parents should plan with their students where to go or what to do if a parent is not home and schools are closed, delayed, or dismissed early. In the event of an early release, elementary and middle school students will be held at school until parents or guardians are notified and arrangements are made to keep the students safe.
