Thank you for your patience this past week as PJH has worked with district administrators and campus staff to plan and train for providing online learning opportunities for our students. As we work through this process in the coming weeks, we will monitor and make adjustments where necessary. Working together allows us the opportunity to make the best, most appropriate decisions for our students, families, and staff members.
