  • Thank you for your understanding....

    Posted by Heike Cook on 2/13/2018

    While we at PHS understand that Valentine's Day is a wonderful way to suprise your student with flowers, chocolates, etc, we would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that deliveries will not be accepted at the school.  

    Any treats, flowers, stuffed animals, etc. that are brought to the school by students will need to be stored in their locker or cars.

    We are sorry for inconvenience but hope that you will understand that we are trying to minimize our distractions while at school.

    Posted by Heike Cook on 2/7/2018

    Students in the H Hall were evacuated today due to a heavy odor during their 4th period.  Please know that this was strictly a precaution and the students were never in danger.  The Fire Department was dispatched and found no cause for the odor.  We released the students back to the H hall at approximately 4:10 pm in order for them to retrieve their belongings at the end of the day. 

    Thank you to all the students and staff that evacuated in an orderly fashion and allowed us to ensure the safety of all!

  • Drop Off and Pick Up - Your help is needed!

    Posted by Heike Cook on 1/30/2018

    Due to concerns for the safety of our students, we ask that when dropping off or picking up you follow the guidelines listed below:

    *  Enter the drop off/pick up loop slowly.  Continue to drive slowly while you are on school property.  Keep in mind that students and visitors are trying to get to their cars and will weave in and around parked cars.

    *  Drop students off only in the far right lane, curb side.  Pull all the way up as far as you can go. 

    *  The middle lane should only be used for exiting.  Do not stop in the midde of the lane to drop off or pick up.

    *  If you are needing to run in to the school, please park in the designated parking spots.  Do not leave your car in the fire lane unattended. 

    * If you are parked in the spaces waiting for your student, please encourage them to use the cross walk and not to walk inbetween cars.

    *  When exiting the drop off/pick up loop please turn right only.

  • PHS Choir has an All Stater!!

    Posted by Heike Cook on 1/18/2018 5:00:00 PM

    We are so very proud to announce that senior Sydney Moore has earned a spot in a Texas All State Choir!

    This year, 12961 students auditioned.  After 4 rounds of auditions, beginning in September with the last being Saturday January 13, only 504 will make it into either the Mixed Choir, the Treble Choir or the Tenor Bass Choir.  The last PHS All Stater was Billie Lyle in 2013.  There hasn't been an All State Choir student in the district since Billie.

     

    Congratulations to Sydney for her amazing accomplishment!
