It is imperative that students adhere to the school’s dress code. Uniforms are required to be worn by all students.
Uniform bottoms, i.e. shorts, pants, skirts, and skorts must be solid navy or khaki and may be purchased at a store of your choice. Girls may also wear navy, khaki or the #1 plaid (from Ibiley Uniforms) dresses, jumpers, skirts and skorts. You may purchase #1 plaid items at www.Ibiley.com. The best way to gauge proper attire is to lean toward purchasing the French Toast or Dickies brand. Denim jeans are not acceptable on uniform days. Parkway Christian School polo shirts (available in red, green, navy, and white) with the school logo must be purchased through the school and are to be worn daily with appropriate uniform bottoms, except on PE days and specially designated dress down days. Boys and girls must wear belts, if belt loops are present, and keep their shirts tucked in at all times. Girls’ skirt length should be no shorter than two inches above the knee and shorts should be bermuda style in length. Students may not wear sandals or slip-ons of any kind and must wear closed shoes.
On PE days, students must wear the PE grade appropriate uniform purchased from Parkway. Socks need to be worn with athletic sneakers.
Jackets, sweatshirts, or sweatpants, other than those purchased from Parkway, may not have any graphics, writing, stripes or designs and must be a solid navy or gray. Coats/jackets and hats, when necessary, may be worn when students are outside of the school building only. Long sleeve T shirts under the school polo shirt or P.E. shirt may be worn but must be solid red, white, navy or green and may not have any graphics, writing, stripes or designs. Leggings may be worn under dresses, skirts or shorts and must be solid navy, gray, or white and may not have any graphics, writing, stripes or designs. We recommend choosing to dress on the conservative side in order to avoid infractions. Uniform infractions are issued to students not following the PCS uniform code. Elementary parents will be notified of uniform infractions, including repeated un-tucked shirts. Students will receive a $25 administrative detention on every fourth uniform infraction in a quarter.
“Spirit Day” or any “dress down day” (out of uniform) attire must be on the conservative side. The following items are not allowed at any time: open shoes, sandals, slippers or slip-ons of any kind, girls’ skirt length no shorter than two inches above the knee, spaghetti strap tops, ‘short’ shorts, overly tight clothing, writing/words/graphics on the backside of bottoms, clothing items with tears/rips/holes, bandannas, or any head dress or hats, unless specifically stated for any special occasions, while inside. Administration reserves to right to determine if items of clothing are inappropriate. Parents may be asked to bring appropriate clothing when necessary.
Hot lunches are available and provided by SLA Management, an outside catering service for an additional cost. Parents may choose to order a hot lunch at an additional cost or pack a nutritious lunch for their child. Each child is able to have a prepaid lunch account.
All SLA school lunches mirror the National School Lunch standards for daily values of protein, vegetables, fruit, dairy and grain. SLA management staff is comprised of seasoned food executives who are motivated to make a positive contribution to our children's development. Beyond delicious nutritious meal options, their goal is to create a cafe atmosphere that provides a positive stress free dining experience for all students.
SLA's Build-A-Meal™ program allows students to choose from a variety of daily entrees and healthy side items, including fresh fruit and fresh vegetables on a daily basis.

After School Enrichment
As an extension of Parkway Christian School's After School Program, enrichment classes are designed to complement a rigorous day of academic learning. By providing students with invaluable opportunities to explore, enrichment classes help nurture students' creative and extracurricular interests. These classes enhance a student's education by bringing new concepts to light or by using old concepts in new ways. Activities are fun for the student, but they also impart knowledge.
We offer a myriad of exciting after school enrichment classes for students in KP through Fifth Grade. Some of the most popular activities include Sports Mania, Tennis, Mind Lab, Dance, Karate, Breakfast Bunch and Bricks4Kidz. Enrichment classes are available based on interest.
Before Care & After Care
Morning Care, beginning every morning at 7:00 AM, is available to all Parkway Christian School students. Students participating in Morning Care are supervised by a school employee in the Multipurpose Room. All students arriving at Parkway Christian School prior to 7:30 AM must be dropped off by their parents in Morning Care. Students are directed to the Breezeway promptly at 8:00 AM.
•After School Care
After School Care begins the first day of school and is available to all students at Parkway Christian School. Parents need to register students up for After School Care ahead of time. All students in Kindergarten Prep through Grade 8 who are not picked up at dismissal or are participating in an Enrichment Program are escorted to After School Care. After School Care ends at 6:00 PM.
During their time there, all students participate in a range of age appropriate activities including homework assistance, free play, and snack.
Parkway has three dismissal times. In order to avoid multiple pick ups for parents, Sibling Care was created. Sibling Care is staffed and monitored by our Teacher Aides and Child Care Staff.
Kindergarten Prep and Kindergarten dismiss at 2:05 PM, 1st through 5th grades dismiss at 2:30 PM and Middle School dismiss at 3:00 PM. Sibling Care is available to families that have students with different dismissal times. Siblings may be picked up at the latest dismissal time. Students in Sibling Care are supervised until parents pick up their students.
Kindergarten Prep and Kindergarten students in Sibling Care have snack time before being dismissed with their eldest sibling at either 2:30 PM or 3:00 PM. First through fifth grade students in Sibling Care are supervised until the 3:00 PM car line.
