Families are an important part of our school environment. Parents are welcome and encouraged to visit any time.
Parent Volunteer Positions
Each year, a parent must fulfill a job volunteering to help with a special activity during the school year. Your regular assisting days in the classroom do not count towards your parent volunteer position. Below are the opportunities available.
Areas to volunteer:
Signups will be through “Signup Genius” prior to Parent Orientation night. You will also receive email reminders throughout the year.
The TPPK vacation schedule is planned yearly with consideration given to the Durham Public School System's Traditional Calendar.
TPPK will be CLOSED if the Durham Public Schools are closed or on delay. If DPS has multiple consecutive closings or delays, the director will make the decision whether or not to open. We dismiss early if the weather gets bad and the Public Schools dismiss early. Email will be used to notify parents of closings. You may also check WRAL and WTVD television stations. TPPK will not make up days or offer a tuition rebate because of school closings.
