Starting on July 7th, the testing provider that we have been using for our weekly testing for staff and students, Longview (LTS), will resume testing during the summer every Thursday at PTHS from 1:30-2:30. This service is open to all staff and students, and requires the consent form as well as a pre-registration process that requires completion of this Google Form at least three days before testing. Pre-registered families will then receive a registration link from the Broad Institute. Please review the attached documents if you wish to have you child participate in the testing:
From Mr. Hayzler: "As of 2:00 P.M. our plan is to hold the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2022 outside. We will continue to monitor the forecast, but are optimistic based on the most current predictions. There is a slight chance of showers but our seniors have worked too hard throughout their career in the district to not have the best possible ceremony we can provide, which includes having as many of their family and friends cheering them on as possible. Spectators are encouraged to dress for cooler temperatures, and to bring a towel and an umbrella.
We will begin the ceremony promptly at 7:00 P.M. and modify the program to make it as efficient as possible. Graduates and staff will begin processing in at approximately 6:45 P.M. Students should report to the small gym by 6:00 P.M. We will provide another update closer to 4:30 P.M. Thank you."
Starting at 6:45, the district is also using the technology from our partners at Hudl to provide a livestream of the outdoor event. We will also provide a recording of the event on our YouTube channel within the week.
Please note that public comment will only take place in person, but there is still the opportunity to stream the meeting on Zoom. The meeting format online will have a different look and there will be a new link to accommodate the webinar format.
Remote access will be provided via this link.

On April 28th, from 7-8 pm the Special Services Department will be hosting a virtual Parent University offered by Effective School Solutions. The Language of Behaviors: Understanding Challenging Behaviors presentation will assist parents in how to evaluate what a child’s behavior is trying to communicate? Behavior is a form of communication which is especially important when a child has limited means of expressing themselves or has neither the developmental level or psychological capacities to “tell us” how they are doing and how we are doing with them. This workshop develops the ability to appreciate and understand the behavioral relevance and messaging of children. The Zoom information is available on this document.
Please see the linked letter regarding the state's release of the 2020-2021 School Performance Reports.
