Letter from the Principal 

Jessica Baxter
August 2019
 
Dear PHS Students and Parents,
 
As the summer comes to a close I, along with the high school community, would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back t a new school year. This is an exciting time as we use last year's momentum of a later start time and schedule revamp to focus on student wellness, engagement and enjoyment of learning opportunities. The administration, secretaries, faculty and staff have been hard at work this summer preparing to make this upcoming school year a great one!
 
You will receive a packet in the mail this month. In order to begin the school year as efficiently as possible please take note of the information in this packet which includes important dates, reminders and forms. A master checklist of items that require signatures is included, and the forms can be found on the website if you click here.
 
I'm looking forward to seeing you all in September and all the wonderful opportunities that lie ahead. Enjoy the rest of summer, and we will all be back in this building together shortly.
 
Sincerely,
Jessica Baxter
Principal
