Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Break is upon us! There is no school Wednesday, November 23-Friday, November 25. We are thankful for our wonderful Parklawn family every day of the year! Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Attendance Update

We are thankful for you! As we look forward to the Thanksgiving break from 11/23-11/25, we are grateful for everyone who has helped to establish a routine for coming to school every day and on time. Please note that we DO have school on Monday 11/21 and Tuesday 11/22 this week.

Daily routines are essential for reducing stress and creating a sense of security. As long as your child is healthy, please be sure they are at school. Every day of school is an important opportunity for students to learn as well as connect to peers and their teachers.

We are thankful for our students and their families who do their best to show up to school every day even when it isn’t easy. May these days off be restful and healing. We look forward to seeing you again when school resumes on Monday 11/28.
