Attention Students and Families,
Please read over the following information regarding tonight’s Prom safety guidelines.
The cost of entry is $20 which will be paid at the door.
The attire for the evening is formal and school appropriate.
Student’s temperatures will be checked upon entry. Any temperature over 100 will not be allowed to enter.
The DJ will be operating from the corner of the gym separated from the students.
The DJ will not be playing any slow dance songs.
There will be a photo booth. It will be placed in the commons away from food and gym entry. We are not going to allow students to use props.
The food will be located on the far backside of the cafeteria away from the traffic and dancing.
The food will be served by an adult with
gloves. The students are not allowed to get their own food. They will need to stay back from the food table.
The tables are spread out on the cafeteria floor 10 feet apart.
We will also have tables stationed on the entrance level to the school far away from the dance floor for those students who want to hang out in a safe place but not dance.
The prom court stage will be located on the far side of the gym.
Students will not be required to stay until coronation.
Coronation has been moved up to 9 pm
Hand sanitizer will be stationed at the main entrance, bathrooms, photo booth, and food line.
Students will be limited to three at a time in any restroom.
All adults supervising in close proximity to the students will wear a mask. Students are welcome and encouraged to wear their own masks.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Commencement Ceremony (Graduation) Safety Plan/Details
-Current date and time---Sunday, July 19th at 7:00 pm
-Will be held at the PHS Athletic Stadium.
Gates will open 2 hours before the start of the event.
There will be separate entrances for field level and bleacher seating to minimize lines.
Each family will be given 10 tickets for admission to the field level seating.
Chairs on the field level will be in groups of 10 and are on a first come first serve basis.
Each grouping of 10 chairs will be 6 feet from the next grouping in all directions.
You do not need your entire party there to reserve your seats.
Please do not move seats.
The home bleachers will be available for general seating.
Please note that some rows will be blocked off to allow for safe spacing.
Once seated, please remain seated unless absolutely necessary.
At this time the weather looks promising for the day of the ceremony and we fully anticipate it being held at the scheduled time.
That being said, in the case of inclement weather on the scheduled date, rather than move the ceremony inside as in the past, our plans are to move the ceremony date and time to ensure we can provide as much spacing as possible. If needed we would move the graduation date and time in the following order:
Saturday, July 18th @ 7 pm
Saturday, July 18th @ 10 am
Friday, July 17th @ 7 pm
Sunday, July 26th @ 7 pm
Again, these changes would only be made if we are unable to host the ceremony due to inclement weather.
If you are in need of handicap access or transportation to the field from parking, please inform the High School Main Office no later than the date of graduation practice, Thursday, July 16th.
Waters will be available for purchase at venues around the field.
Masks are welcome and encouraged but will not be provided.
Please practice social distancing when possible.
Thank you all very much. I look forward to seeing you all.

We wanted to reach out and provide details for those enrolled to attend July Summer School at PHS. First let me thank you for your patience as we have been working to finalize July details that will help ensure the safety of those attending. As a reminder the July session will begin Monday, July 6th and will run through Friday, July 31st. Classes run Monday-Friday from 7:30 am-11:30 am (Band and Athletic Development will follow the schedule sent out by their intructor/coach). Over the next few days your Summer School Teachers will be reaching out to you to give you information specific to their classes such as course specific requirements, locations, and break times. Students in credit recovery courses and the seated health classes will be required to attend in person each day and must notify the office if they are going to miss just like during a normal school year. Traditional Credit Courses (virtual courses taken for the first time) are only required to attend the first 2 days (July 6th and 7th) and the last day (July 31st) unless they struggle or fall behind. Also, we wanted to remind you that transportation is available for summer school. Details can be found on the district web page under the transportation link. If students need a chromebook and did not keep theirs at the end of the school year one will be checked out to them for the duration of summer school.
As for safety precautions:
-All students will enter the building through the Main Entrance
-Students will be asked to report directly to their classrooms
-Students should not bring backpacks.
-Outside food can be brought in but must be brought in a disposable container
-Students will only be allowed to use the water bottle filler stations located in the main lobby and at the end of the 400 hallway. All other water stations/fountains will be off limits.
-Students will be released for breaks at schedule times to limit the numbers in common areas with time in between for sanitation
-Masks are welcome and encouraged but will not be required or provided
-Each classroom will have disinfectant available and hourly cleaning will be conducted of high contact areas
-At the end of the day students must report directly to their bus
-Students being picked up will be spaced out in the cafeteria until their ride arrives
-Students will be instructed on safe hygiene and made aware of all required protocols during breaks
I look foward to seeing all of you next week and if there are any questions please email me and we will do our best to answer any questions.
