Dear families,

Park Middle School is dedicated to providing the support necessary for all students to be successful in school, and meaningful homework is important to student learning at all grade levels. The purpose of the Academic Success Program/Homework Zone is to provide support for students who struggle with homework completion, and to help us identify a possible need for intervention.

A Tiered Approach to Support

Here at Park, our expectation is that all students complete daily homework assignments, either in Power Hour or at home. To help all students meet that expectation, we have three levels of support available:

Level 1: Power Hour – Boys and Girls Club offers Power Hour as an opportunity for any member to complete daily homework assignments and participate in fun and engaging extracurricular activities. Power Hour operates from 3:05-4:00 Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and is staffed by Park teachers. All Park students are welcome to join Boys and Girls Club and participate in Power Hour.

Level 2: Homework Zone – The Homework Zone is for any Park student who did not complete homework from the previous day. Attendance in Homework Zone is assigned by teachers and mandatory. Students assigned to Homework Zone will work with Academic Interventionists to complete their missing assignment(s). When a student has completed the work for which Homework Zone was assigned, they will be dismissed to go home or to Power Hour. Students will call home when they have been assigned, and a phone is also available after school to make parent contact if necessary. Homework Zone operates Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and is staffed by Park teachers.

Level 3: Academic Intervention Referral – A meeting including parent/guardian(s), student, teachers, counselor, SAT program coordinator, and administrator could be scheduled for students who continue to struggle with homework completion. The purpose of this meeting will be to determine further interventions needed to support the student’s success in school.

I would also like to remind families about our Before/After School procedures.  Campus does not open until 7:30 a.m.  For the safety of all of our students, we ask that students are not arriving at school until 7:30 a.m. (except students attending BGC morning program). The after school dismissal bell rings at 2:58. All students need to be picked up, walking home, at practice, or at the Boys and Girls Club by 3:10.

I want to close by saying thank you for all you do in supporting Park Middle School!

Park PBIS Needs You!

Park’s Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) Committee is looking for parents and guardians who are interested in helping to plan social events and service activities throughout the school year to increase family involvement at Park.


  • Attend monthly meetings with teachers, administrators and students for planning
  • Make contact with other community members who can help aide in our mission
  • Help plan and attend the monthly and/or quarterly family events

Those who are interested will need to complete both the survey and the LPS Volunteer Form, both listed below. We would like to start meetings in October. We will make contact with you once we have received your information! We look forward to working with you.

The 125 staff members of Park Middle School are dedicated to providing the highest quality education and empowering all students to succeed in a culturally diverse community, nation, and world.


  • If a student is/will be absent – Parent/Guardian should call 402-436-1212 Ext: 1, to inform our attendance office.  If the Office is unaware of an absence, the student will be marked truant.
  • If a student needs to leave during the day, Parent/Guardian should call the Office as early in the day as possible so we can arrange for the student to be waiting. If a student needs to be picked up while they are at lunch, or in PE or taking a test, dismissing them in a timely manner can be more complicated.


ParentVue is a great resource if you would like to keep ‘real time’ track of your students grades/attendance.  If you need a username and password, please contact  She will give you the log-in credentials.

Thank you for helping make Park great!
