Back to School Information
Enrollment for the 2022-23 School Year
CONTINUING PCHS STUDENTS AND RISING TMJH STUDENTS:
The Current Student Enrollment Update process, including annual Proof of Residency, is REQUIRED for all district students every school year. See the "Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year" section below for the enrollment update instructions and information for the new school year.
If you need to enroll a NEW student (new to the Park City School District, or a former student re-enrolling after having withdrawn from a district school), see the district’s New Student Enrollment page for enrollment information. NOTE: If you pre-enrolled your new student with the District Registrar in May, you have already completed your enrollment.
PARK CITY HIGH SCHOOL
WELCOME TO THE 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR
SCHOOL BEGINS ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 2022 (WHITE DAY)
PCHS Summer Office Hours: August 1-16, Monday-Friday, from 8:00am to 3:00pm (closed for lunch 12:00-1:00pm). Regular office hours will resume August 17.
Student Enrollment Update (School Registration): REQUIRED BEFORE AUGUST 17
ALL continuing and rising students must complete the online Current Student Enrollment Update every school year. Parents will receive a “snapcode” for each of their students via email. Click the "snapcode link" in the email to access the online system. More information is available on the Park City School District–Current Student Enrollment Update page. If you didn’t get the snapcode email, a paper copy can be picked up at the school. NOTE: We started sending out snapcodes in March, so some families may have already completed their student’s enrollment update. If you don’t have access to a computer or the internet at home, computers are available at the local libraries and at the schools. (If you have a new student and completed your pre-enrollment in May, you will have already done this when you enrolled with the District Registrar.)
- Proof of Residency is required as part of the Online Enrollment Update: Proof of full-time residency within our district boundaries is required for ALL students every school year. The parents or legal guardians with whom the student lives must provide THREE (3) acceptable proof documents in their name--ONLY the documents listed on the district’s Residency Policy page will be accepted. IMPORTANT: Proof documents MUST BE UPLOADED into the Online Enrollment Update system--you won't be able to submit it until three residency documents or photos are uploaded. This is required. You can save your work, log out, and log back in later to finish if you need time to gather your proofs.
- Not Returning? Enter the online enrollment system using your snapcode and declare that your student will NOT be enrolled at PCHS for the 2022-2023 school year. Answer one question, tell us where they will be enrolled, submit, and you’re done. Or email the PCHS Registrar.
- Need Help? If you need help with snapcodes, logging into the enrollment system, forgot your username or password, or you have proof of residency questions, please email the PCHS Registrar and include your student’s full name, date of birth, your name, and your relationship with the student.
Due to the construction, we will have a limited number of parking spaces available for the next two years. Parking permits will be sold to Seniors and Juniors ONLY. Students are not guaranteed a space in the PCHS lots. Permits will be sold by appointment ONLY. Information about setting up an appointment will be posted on the Parking Permits page of our website once it's available. Appointment dates will be August 15 for Seniors and August 16 for Juniors. You must bring your completed Parking Permit Application and Agreement and $100 payment with you to your scheduled time in order to receive a parking permit. Only cash or check (payable to Park City High School) in the amount of $100 will be accepted. Alternatives to parking at the school include the district's School Bus service and local transportation services Park City Transit and High Valley Transit.
Laptops will be distributed per the following schedule. Parents, make sure you've completed your student's Online Enrollment Update and agreed to all the technology policies for this school year first. Students should bring a laptop bag with them to pick up their laptop. Signs will be posted at the high school to direct students where to go.
- Sophomores - August 12, 8:00am to 2:30pm
- Seniors - August 15, 8:00am to 2:30pm
- Juniors - August 16, 8:00am to 2:30pm
- Laptops for New Students: Every attempt will be made to get laptops to new students for the first day of school. However, it does take extra time for new student laptops and accounts to be set up, so there may be a slight delay.
Class Schedules and Schedule Change Requests:
From 7:00am August 2nd through 7:00am August 8th, students will have the opportunity to view and potentially make adjustments to their class schedules online via ClassChoice. For full information, see the ClassChoice page. DO NOT email your counselor for a schedule change. NO schedule changes will be accepted August 8-16 as we finalize class rosters and teachers begin preparing for their classes. Schedules are subject to change prior to the first day of school as we work to balance class sizes. Your FINAL class schedule will be the one you see in PowerSchool on the morning of August 17. If you don't have access to PowerSchool, you can get a printed copy of your schedule from the office the morning of August 17. Beginning the first day of school, and for five days ONLY, changes can be requested in person in the Counseling Office (see the secretary, Ms. Jensen, for an appointment slip). Schedule Change Policy
The Park City Board of Education has waived the fees for mandatory academics, elective courses, and general education expenses. The board’s action is not a categorical waiver of all fees. At this time, fees for AP tests, concurrent enrollment, credit remediation, extracurricular and other activities conducted outside the normal hours of the school day are NOT covered by the Board's waiver. However, assistance for these remaining fees is available and are subject to State law and district waiver policy. If you want to apply for a Fee Waiver, see the main office or the School Fees page. The fee waiver will be used in assessing extracurricular fees and some class fees. Proof of income must be provided with the application. The Free & Reduced Lunch application is a separate form (see below). If you have questions about fees or fee waivers, see the finance secretary, Donna McManus, in the main office.
Lunch and Breakfast Meal Accounts:
The federal waiver that provided free meals to all students has expired. Families will once again need to pay for their school meals. Add money to your student’s lunch/breakfast account via PayPAMS. Balances roll over each year. Menus, fees, and other information are available on the Child Nutrition pages of the district website. Free & Reduced Lunch Applications (Solicitud para familias de comidas gratis o a precio reducido) are available from the main office or on the district Meal Fees and Meal Applications page.

Yearbooks can ONLY be purchased through Jostens. To order your yearbook, go to www.jostensyearbooks.com. Yearbooks cannot be purchased at the school.
Lockers are optional and will only be assigned at the student’s request.
Doors and School Access:
Students are issued new door access badges at the beginning of each school year; your badge from the previous year will no longer work. If your new badge is not working be sure to try it several times (this activates it). If it still won’t work, or you lose it, report it immediately to the main office for a replacement. Students are to use their badges on door #19 on the Eccles side, and door #6 on the west end of the cafeteria ONLY. Student badges do not work at the front entrance. The front entrance is for visitors only.
Red/White Day Calendar:
The first day of school, August 17, will be a White day. You can get a copy of the Red/White calendar from the main office (magnet calendars are back!). The Calendar page of the PCHS website includes Red/White days, school holidays, and school events.
Our bell schedules are the same as last school year. We have a regular Monday through Thursday schedule, and an early release Friday schedule. Get a copy on the Bell Schedule page of our website or in the main office. On occasion, we will also have modified assembly schedules.
Your lunch schedule, either A Lunch or B Lunch, is determined by the teacher you have for 3rd period. Check the Teacher Lunch Schedules list posted on the main office windows or ask your 3rd period teacher. Your lunch time may be different on Red and White days, and may change at the semester if your classes change.
In-Person Back to School Night – August 25:
More information to come! Parents are invited to our Back to School Night on Thursday, August 25th, 5pm-7pm. Meet your student’s teachers, school administrators, and get valuable school information. Please have a copy of your student’s schedule for this event—you can get it in your student’s PowerSchool account or in your Parent PowerSchool account.
School pictures will be taken on Monday, August 29. All students must have their picture taken for their student IDs. Purchasing pictures is optional. All students should be dressed in appropriate attire for their school picture. One picture retake/make-up day is scheduled for September 26.
For school bus information, see the district's Transportation page.
For school sports information, see our Athletic Director page or ParkCityMiners.us. Note that all athletes are required to have a current school year physical (all physicals from last season have expired).
Parent PowerSchool and Canvas Accounts:
Parents can monitor their student’s grades, attendance, and assignments online using PowerSchool and Canvas. Parent PowerSchool and Canvas Account information will be provided via email shortly after the school year begins. With the information we provide, you will create your own usernames and passwords and can link all your district students to your parent account in each system. Parents in separate households can each create their own accounts. (If you set up your Parent Accounts previously, you can continue using them; you don’t need to create new ones.) For help, see the Parent Technology page of our website.
Quarterly Report Cards:
PCHS provides quarterly report cards electronically in PowerSchool. When the report cards are ready, they will be uploaded to the student and parent PowerSchool accounts. You will receive a notification via email, then you can log in to PowerSchool to view and print the report card as needed. Parents, make sure the school has your correct email address! Paper report cards will not be mailed home.
The PCHS Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) supports our teachers and staff by donating both time and funds to enhance our students’ overall educational experience. Please join by completing the PTSO Membership Form on the PTSO Membership page, or pick up a membership form at the school.
Park City Education Foundation (PCEF):
Your gift helps fund nearly 100 programs in the Park City School District! At PCHS, PCEF funds PCCAPS, Robotics, Debate, STEM, Music, Journalism and Special Ed programs, materials and fees for co-curricular competitions, Bright Futures, LIA and more. These programs would not exist without you. Donations can be made directly on the PCEF Website.
Optional Student Insurance Information:
The safety of our students is of critical importance to all of us and we want to protect them from injury. Even so, accidents do happen (at school and elsewhere) and required medical care can be expensive. Please know that your school does not assume responsibility for such costs but does offer you access to several student accident insurance plans for voluntary purchase. If interested, you can enroll online at Myers-stevens.com.
