Back To School Fall 2021

Back to School Enrollment for the 2021-22 School Year

CURRENT STUDENTS (currently enrolled in the Park City School District—continuing PCHS students and rising TMJH students):  The online Current Student Enrollment Update and Proof of Residency are REQUIRED of ALL district students every school year.

To complete the online Current Student Enrollment Update, click the link in the “snapcode” email you received, or go to this page: Park City School District – Current Student Enrollment Update


If you need help with your student’s PCHS enrollment update
, email the PCHS Registrar, Jennifer. Include your student’s full name, date of birth, and your name and relationship to the student.  Email Jennifer if…
– Your student will NOT be attending PCHS this year (please give us the name and location of their new school).
– You didn’t get the “snapcode” email for your PCHS student.  Snapcodes were emailed out August 3rd and 9th.  NOTE: We also sent out snapcodes in May and June, so some families may have already completed their student’s enrollment update. If you’re not sure, email Jennifer.
– You forgot your email or password for the enrollment update system (DON’T do the New Student Enrollment).
– You you have proof of residency questions. If you didn’t upload your docs into the enrollment system, you can email proofs to Jennifer or bring them to the Counseling Office after August 5th.

NEW STUDENTS:  If you are NEW to the Park City School District, or a former student who is re-enrolling after having withdrawn from a district school, see the district’s New Student Enrollment page for enrollment information.  (If you pre-enrolled your new student with the counselor in May, you have already completed your enrollment.)

PARK CITY HIGH SCHOOL
WELCOME TO THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR

SCHOOL BEGINS ON MONDAY, AUGUST 23, 2021 (RED DAY)
(note that this is a change to the first day of school)

PCHS Summer Office Hours:  August 2-18, Monday-Friday, from 8:00am to 3:00pm (closed for lunch 12:00-1:00pm).  Regular office hours will resume August 19.

COVID-19 Response for the 2021-22 School Year:
All PCHS classes will be in-person for the 2021-22 school year (students may still elect to take courses online via Utah Students Connect or other online providers).  Park City School District has announced that wearing face masks will be encouraged for all vaccinated and non-vaccinated students, teachers, and staff, but in alignment with Utah State HB1007, masks will not be required.  COVID mitigations will continue within the schools including fresh air circulation, handwashing, and sanitizing of frequently touched surfaces.  If a school site reaches a minimum threshold of total COVID cases, “Test to Stay” will be implemented in order to remain safely open for instruction.  For more information, please see the July 31 News Release posted at https://newsroom.pcschools.us/.

REQUIRED BEFORE AUGUST 19 – Online Enrollment Update (School Registration):
ALL returning 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, or go to Park City School District–Current Student Enrollment Update.  Read ALL the information and instructions provided.  If you didn’t get the snapcode email, a paper copy can be picked up at the school.  NOTE: We started sending out snapcodes back in May, 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 will be available at the school after August 5.  The enrollment update must be completed BEFORE the first day of school, August 19!
(If you have a new student and completed your pre-enrollment in May, you already did this when you enrolled with the district registrar.)

REQUIRED BEFORE AUGUST 19 – Proof of Residency:
Proof of full-time residency within our district boundaries is required for ALL students every school year, per district policy.  The parents or legal guardians with whom the student lives must provide THREE (3) acceptable proof documents.  ONLY the documents listed on the district’s Residency Policy page will be accepted.  This year, proof documents can be uploaded into the Online Enrollment Update system (see above).  If you are unable to upload your documents, you must bring them to the school.  Proof of Residency must be submitted AND approved BEFORE the first day of school, August 19!
(If you have a new student and completed your pre-enrollment in May, you don’t need to provide residency documents again, unless your address has changed.)

Parking Permits:
Parking permits will be sold to Seniors and Juniors ONLY.  Students are not guaranteed a space in the PCHS lots.  Once PCHS lots are full, students must park at the LDS church parking lot located on Monitor and Lucky John.  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 16, 17, and 18.  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.

Student Laptops*:
Laptops will be distributed outside the Tech Office per the following schedule.  Make sure you’ve completed the Online Enrollment Update and provided your Proof of Residency first!  Bring a laptop bag with you.
Seniors – August 16, 8:00am to 2:30pm
Juniors – August 17, 8:00am to 2:30pm
Sophomores – August 18, 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 at least 24 hours after a new student’s enrollment is complete for all their accounts to be set up, so there may be a slight delay.

Class Schedules and Schedule Change Requests:
From 7:00am August 5th through 7:00am August 11th, 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 11-18 as we finalize class rosters and teachers begin preparing for their classes.  After ClassChoice closes, students can view their schedule in PowerSchool.  Schedules are subject to change prior to Thursday, August 19, as we work to balance class sizes.  Your FINAL class schedule will be the one in PowerSchool on the morning of August 19.  If you don’t have access to PowerSchool, you can get a printed copy of your schedule from the front office the morning of August 19.  Beginning the first day of school, and for FIVE days ONLY, changes can be requested via an online request form (not in person or by email).  PCHS Schedule Change Policy

Fees:
The Park City Board of Education affirms the principle that a public education should be free to the patrons of the school district and that barriers to public education should be removed wherever possible. In that effort, the school board has waived the fee requirements for mandatory academics, elective courses, and general education expenses for the 2021-2022 school year. The board’s action is not a categorical waiver of all fees. This action does not extend at this time to extracurricular fees and other fees for activities conducted outside the normal hours of the school day. Remaining school fees are subject to State law and district waiver policy.  Please note that fees for AP tests, concurrent enrollment, and credit remediation are not covered by this action, but assistance is available.  If you have questions about fees, see the finance secretary, Donna McManus, in the main office.

Fee Waivers: If you want to apply for a fee waiver, see the finance secretary, Donna McManus, in the main office.  The fee waiver will be used in assessing extra-curricular fees and some class fees.  The fee waiver form is available from the main office or on the School Fees page.  Proof of income must be provided with the application.  The Free & Reduced Lunch application is a separate form and is also available from the main office or on the School Fees page.

Yearbooks:
Yearbooks can ONLY be purchased through Jostens.  To order your yearbook, go to www.jostensyearbooks.com.  Yearbooks cannot be purchased through the school office.

Lockers:
Lockers are optional and will only be assigned at the student’s request.

Red/White Calendar:
The first day of school, August 19, will be a Red day.  You can print a copy of the Red/White calendar from our website at pchs.pcschools.us (in the right column).  The Calendar page of the PCHS website also includes the Red/White days, holidays, and school events.

Bell Schedules:
Our bell schedules have changed for the 2021-22 school year.  We will have a regular Monday through Thursday schedule, and a new early release Friday schedule.  Get a copy on the Bell Schedule page of our website or in the main office.

Lunch Times:
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 may be different on Red and White days.

Meal Accounts:
Add money to your student’s breakfast/lunch 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 School Fees page.

Back to School Night (Virtual) – August 26:
More information to come!  Parents are invited to our Virtual Back to School Night on Thursday, August 26th, 3pm-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 or your student’s PowerSchool account.

School Pictures:
School pictures will be taken on Monday, August 30.  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 will be scheduled on October 4.

School Bus:
For school bus information, see the district’s Transportation page.

Student Athletes:
For school sports information, see our Athletic Director page, ParkCityMiners.us, contact the sport’s coach, or see the Main Office.  Note that all athletes are required to have a current school year physical (all physicals completed for last season have expired).

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. Details can be found in the information here: EnglishSpanish

PTSO Membership:
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.  Download the PCEF flyer in English or Spanish.

Parent PowerSchool and Canvas Accounts:
Parents can monitor their student’s grades, attendance, and assignments from home, anytime, using PowerSchool and Canvas.  Parent PowerSchool and Canvas Account information will be provided via email once 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 tech help, see the 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, please make sure the school has your correct email address!
