Weekly free tutoring is available. If your student is in need of tutoring in any subject area, please have them talk with their teachers or an administrator.
Parents and Students, I would like to remind you that leaving campus during the school day is against school board policy. Students that have class of campus either through online instruction or at PHSC is the only excusable reason to leave campus. Additionally, being in the parking lot during the school day is also NEVER allowed. Please make sure that if you are signing out of school for an appointment or signing back in, to do so through the front office. This is the way to ensure your absences are excused and you are following the correct procedures. Students, again, the dress code is in effect at all times. Please review the dress code and make sure outfits meet the dress code. Lastly, if you need to check-out your student, please make sure to do this prior to 1:30pm. All check-outs after 1:30pm will have to wait until the close of the school day at 2:00pm.
