  • Logan Nichols announced as candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2020 Student of the Year.

    Parkwood Junior, Logan Nichols, has been accepted as a candidate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2020 Students of the Year campaign. Students are nominated based on leadership, passion to find a cure for blood cancers and involvement in the community. Candidates then participate in a national seven-week challenge to raise funds and awareness for the fight against blood cancers. This year's campaign begins on January 26, 2020, and culminates on March 13, 2020 with a celebration in Charlotte. Last year alone, there were more than 5,000 high school students participating throughout the country and this year we are excited to have Logan represent Parkwood High! She is running in honor of Will Henely and River Peedin, both local cancer survivors. To get involved or learn more about the campaign, please visit www.StudentsoftheYear.org.

  • Plan B Update - 2 Face to Face Days

    On September 22, 2020, the UCPS BOE confirmed its decision to have students attend school face to face two days a week.  For Parkwood High School beginning Tuesday, September 29:

    • If your child is currently attending school on a Monday or a Tuesday, they can now attend on both Monday and Tuesday. 
    • If your child is currently attending school on a Wednesday or a Thursday, they can now attend on both Wednesday and Thursday.  
    • Friday will remain a remote learning for all students.

    We will continue to maintain all Covid-19 safety precautions put in place at the beginning of this school year.

    • We will continue daily symptom and temperature screenings/checks for all students and any person who enters a school building.
    • Social distancing protocols will be required for anyone who enters school buildings.
    • All students (K-12) must wear face coverings in school and on school buses.  All staff and adult visitors must wear face coverings in school buildings and offices.
    • UCPS will continue to provide face coverings for students, teachers, and staff.
