Bell Schedule and Session Information
Sessions are offered based on the needs of students. Parrish offers two sessions. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are for high school students. Tuesday and Thursday are for middle school.

Credit Recovery: Credit recovery gives high school students who have failed a class the opportunity to retake a course through Edmentum, Omaha Public Schools’ online learning environment—and thereby avoid failure and the opportunity to earn academic credit. Students enrolled in a credit-recovery course at Parrish are assigned to a computer during one period of the school day. Students should continue working on the course at home to ensure completion. Students must successfully complete all units of study and the end of course exam to earn a passing grade. Edmentum exams will be taken in person at Parrish. A course that is not completed will be marked as an F.
Work Study: Students who are employed or consistently volunteer can earn work-study credits. Students can earn 1 credit per 90 logged hours with a maximum of 3 credits.
