— Parents and guardians of Parker High School students will get their first chance Monday night to take a close look at the school expansion project and renovations.

Self-guided tours will be offered at Parker between 7:45 and 8:45 p.m.


The ongoing construction work is a part of the $70.8 million referendum voters approved in 2006. Work is expected to continue through summer 2009.


The tours are in conjunction with the schoolís Back-to-School Night, when parents can meet their childís teachers and learn about school programs.


Craig High School is planning similar tours at its Back-to-School Night, on Monday, Sept. 22.


Both schools also have discussed community tours during their homecoming weeks, but details are not yet firm.


Parkerís doors open at 5:45 p.m. Monday. Guests should park in the west student parking lot and enter the building through the doors located closest to Mineral Point Avenue.


Guests should not park in the east or south lots. Those entrances will be locked.


The Parker Parent Teacher Student Association and the Parker Athletic Booster Club will offer information and memberships. Student directories will be available for all PTSA paid memberships.


Parents also may shop at the Athletic Booster Club Store and at the The Barn, the DECA student marketing association store.


Parents are asked to report to their childís advisory room at 6:30 p.m. There, they will meet their childís advisor and pick up class schedules to follow as they meet the rest of their childrenís teachers.


The attendance, guidance, athletic and main offices will be open for parents wishing to obtain information about their child. Parents are invited to the library to meet administrators and student-services staff.
