Welcome

It is an honor to serve as Principal of Parkway Middle School. The Parkway staff and I strive to provide your child with an academically challenging program and many opportunities for leadership and social responsibilities. Parent involvement is the key!  We want you to be part of the Parkway team. Volunteer, join our active PTSA. There is always room for you in different capacities. Please peruse our Parkway website for all sorts of information. Please know that my door is always open to you. Communication between home and school is vital. Together we make this a great school by putting children first in all we do!

New front gate security process starting August 26th

Starting on Monday, August 26th we will be using an electronic security gate for all visitors to campus outside of normal student arrival and dismissal times. This is an important change to make our campus more secure. All visitors will be required to show a government-issued photo ID at the security camera to be buzzed in. A drivers license, passport, state-issued ID card or similar document will suffice. Please be prepared with an ID if you will be visiting outside of arrival or dismissal hours.

We appreciate your understanding and patience with this new process. Keeping our students and staff safe is of utmost importance!
