Other district resources for free meals, technology help and more are available online.

Letter Shared with Parents March 16 via SchoolMessenger

Park Hill Parents/Guardians.

In accordance with the directive by the County Executive East Syracuse Minoa Schools will close today, March 16, 2020, at 4 p.m. Students will return to school on Tuesday, April 14, 2020. There are many questions that can be answered and many that cannot at this time. I included information below that I hope will help.

Park Hill teachers and staff are preparing daily activities that will be shared using SeeSaw during this closing to ensure continuity of learning. While we cannot replicate a normal school day in this manner, our staff is working diligently to make the learning fun, academically challenging, and to provide a framework to help students think about thinking.

Starting March 17, free grab-n-go bagged breakfast and lunch will be provided Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at East Syracuse Elementary School for ALL children 18 and under. On Tuesdays & Thursdays, families will be able to pick up two days’ worth of meals. Please use the cafeteria entrance door (number 11). 

We certainly understand that this is a challenging time for everyone. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at or contact your child’s teacher.
