There's too much snow on the roof to do anything about it yet, a spokeswoman tells Patch.
Students and staff at Parkway North High School got more than just an extra day of spring break from the Palm Sunday snowstorm. They also found a leaking roof. A district spokesperson confirms eight leaks in the roof, only one of which impacted a classroom, where students were relocated. Cathy Kelly, Parkway's Communications Coordinator, said it was too dangerous for crews to get out onto the roof yet with the amount of snow on it. Parkway Schools will be in session through Thursday, with a previously scheduled off day Friday.

Joe Hope and Joey Reeves look forward to full season with the varsity squad after last season's meteoric rise and a ride to the state final four.
When Parkway North needed a boost last season, Head Coach Fred Friedman tapped a pair of pitchers who didn't start the year on varsity. Joe Hope and Joey Reeves came up from the JV squad and pitched the Vikings to a magical run to the state final four in Springfield. All Hope, then a Sophomore (7-1, 3.40 ERA) did was shut out a Westminster Christian Academy team that's been the best in the state the past two seasons.

Jenny Marquart was planning to run the New York City Marathon earlier this month.
Parkway North High School Principal Jenny Marquart shared this story as part of her November e-news bulletin to district patrons. Running in the New York City Marathon has been one of my goals since I ran my first marathon eight years ago.
