Principal Message

Angela DeShields

Dear Park Lodge students and families, 

I am excited to begin my 3rd year as principal of Park Lodge Elementary School! Park Lodge is an amazing place, and I am proud to be the principal. The staff and I are looking forward to a wonderful 2022-23 school year! 

I believe that building strong, positive relationships with staff, students, and families is essential to providing students with an environment in which they can learn and thrive. All of us at Park Lodge are looking forward to partnering with you this year. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Our front office phone number is 253-583-5350. 

Meet and Greet

Time: 4:00-6:00pm 

Bell Schedule 

Start: 9:00am 

Dismissal: 3:30pm 

Late Start Wednesdays: 10:00am 

Early Release: 12:30pm 


For your students’ safety, please ensure that students do not arrive at school prior to 8:45am. We do not have supervision until this time.  

Our vehicle drop-off and pick-up is in the back of the building and accessed via Alfaretta St. Please drive slowly and safely in this area. Students should be ready to exit the right side of the vehicle once it has come to a safe and complete stop. To help with the flow of traffic and avoid any backups onto Gravelly Lake Drive, we ask that you drive down Alfaretta Street towards Gravelly Lake Drive and make a left turn into the drop-off/pick up zone. As you exit, we ask that you only make a right-hand turn and go around the block if necessary. 

Our bus drop-off and pick-up is in the front of the building and reserved for busses only. 


We look forward to seeing your student every day and miss them when they are not at school. If your student needs to miss a day of a school, please contact the office to report the absence at 253-583-5350.
