Park City High to host junior dance clinic
Park City High School is set to host its annual junior dance clinic and halftime basketball performance. According to the school website, pchs.pcschools.us, attendees of the clinic — students from kindergarten through ninth-grade — will get three days of dance instruction from the PCHS dance company. Participants will then perform a dance at halftime of the high school’s January 8 boy’s basketball game. Rehersals will take place from Jan. 6 through Jan. 8. The cost is $35 if paid before Dec. 18 and $45 if paid after. For more information, or to register, visit the school website.
PCSD issues school closure procedure reminder
Park City School District has issued a reminder on its website about weather-related emergency school closure procedure. According to the website, pcschools.us, if there is a weather-related school closure, the district will use its notification system called School Messenger to make parents aware. The system sends out messages to parents through the phone numbers and email addresses provided at school registration. For timely notices, parents need to keep that information up-to-date. Information about closures will also be posted on the district website.
Parents can exclude their children from testing
The Park City School District is providing parents with a testing exclusion form for parents who don’t wish to have their children participate in state testing. Parents can access the form at the district website, pcschools.us. The website states that parents must fill out the form and return it to the main office of their children’s school at least one day before the testing window, as per state policy. The district asks that parents turn it in at least three days prior to testing if possible, however.
