Dear Parents and Students,

On behalf of the entire PHS staff, I would like to welcome families back to PHS for the 2022-2023 school year. This will be an exciting year as we continue to emerge from the pandemic with no restrictions on student activities and resume normal school activities. In this packet you will find your student’s bus information, class schedule, and a form to update any contact information. Students will receive their school handbooks on the first day of classes that outline all of the policies and procedures for the upcoming school year. 

The first day for students will be Monday, August 29th. That day will be a half-day for students and will run from 7:15-11:15. 
There will be orientation assemblies held for all grades on the first full day of school, Tuesday, August 30th.
This year PHS will continue on a 4 by 4 block schedule similar to last year. 
Student lockers are available upon request in the office. Students are permitted to carry moderately sized backpacks to classes.
Our first open house of the school year will be held on Thursday, September 15th from 4 – 6 pm.

Once again, welcome back to PHS! We encourage all students to get involved in one of the many excellent clubs and activities that we have here at PHS. Student engagement in the school community is an important part of their success. Please do not hesitate to contact us here at PHS to answer any questions that you might have, or if we can assist you in any way. We hope that you have a great school year!
