Back to School…Already?

As part of our new balanced school calendar, the school bus stops and sidewalks will be dotted with children much earlier this year. Our first day back to school is Wednesday, August 7th. Click here for this year’s school calendar.


If you have a child in elementary school and she is going crazy wondering which teacher she has this year and who will be in her homeroom, the student class lists will be posted on the front door of each elementary school Wednesday, July 31st.

If you have a student in PHMS, the school will be open for Walk My Schedule on Friday, August 2nd from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and Monday, August 5th from 3 – 7 p.m. Students can bring their printed schedules to walk their schedule and find the locations of each of their classes as well as load lockers with school supplies. PE uniforms will also be for sale during Walk My Schedule days. Shirts are $5 and shorts are $9. Yearbooks will also be for sale for $18.
