Parrish Alternative Program
Once the student placement office notifies Parrish of the expulsion, the building secretary will contact the parent(s)/guardian(s) to set up an individual orientation meeting. Students who wish to attend Parrish must go through an orientation meeting along with a Parrish Administration and their parent(s)/guardian(s). This orientation session is designed to give an overview of the program to parents/guardians and set expectations for students as they will join already established classrooms.
Parrish is located at 4315 Cuming St.
Students who wish to attend Parrish must go through orientation starting classes. Students will review school-wide expectations, receive their class schedule, and all high school students will have a review of current high school credits.
School Bus: The Expelled Students Program at Parrish does not provide transportation on school buses.
Metro Bus: Students can utilize the Metro bus system. Bus routes and times can be found at the Ometro website. During this time, if students have a current school ID, they can ride the Metro bus for free.
Parent/Guardians Transportation: Parents/Guardians are always welcome to transport their student to and from school. When dropping off or picking up your student, please park in a parking spot. As the northwest parking lot can become congested, we encourage you to pick your student up at their specific dismissal time. All students will exit from the Northwest door.
Student Transportation: Students who have a valid drivers license can drive to and from Parrish. In order to park at Parrish, we will need a copy of the student's drivers license and proof of insurance. Students will also need to complete the appropriate paperwork.
Students should not arrive at Parrish more than 5 minutes before the start of their session and should be picked up or leave campus within 5 minutes of their last bell.
