Parkwood's NEW School Day Start and End Times

In an effort towards continual improvement, start and end times have been adjusted for schools across the district.  These slight changes will improve transportation reliability and facilitate breakfast for all students at all schools. Parkwood’s times are as follows:
  • Morning Arrival:  For students wanting to eat at school, breakfast begins at 8:35 in our cafeteria commons.  All other students should line up in their designated locations outside the school no earlier than 8:40 each day (these locations will be shared with families as enrollment is solidified in late August).  Classroom teachers greet students and lead them into the building at 8:45 and learning begins at 8:50.
  • Afternoon Dismissal:  Our school day ends at 3:10 and buses depart our campus at 3:15.  Picking up your child after school?  Great!  Details about our dismissal plan will be shared as we get closer to the start of school.
  • On half-days (such as during conference week, the day before Thanksgiving, and the last day of school) school ends at 11:30.
  • On early-release Wednesdays, school ends at 1:30.  Early release Wednesdays are designated on the district calendar and make it possible for staff to attend trainings, meetings, and collectively collaborate.
