    Students will utilize their Chromebooks to access Google Classroom for a daily message and instructional items for the following classes:

    Language Arts & Social Studies

    Math & Science

    Language Arts - Reading program / extension activities

    Please visit Teacher Pages from the menu above to access teacher contact information. Information will also be posted for accessing Google Classroom for those that need it.

    Contact information for the School Principal, Assistant Principal, and Counselor can be found on the School Info menu above.

    Students are encouraged to email their teacher for content related questions. Our staff is "on call" during the day as they work from home and attend the needs of their families.  

    Thank you for your patience this past week as PHS 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.
