PMHS Building Closed To Students Through Wednesday, 12/9

PMHS To Shift To Fully Remote Instruction. In-Person Instruction to Resume Thursday, 12/10


UPDATE: This story has been updated to include the extension of remote learning through 12/9 that was announced by principal Berkowitz on 12/4.

As per Superintendent Champ, on November 24 the decision was made to close the school to students after an individual at the high school was presumed to be positive for COVID-19. The diagnosis was confirmed on November 25 leading the district to switch to remote learning through Wednesday, 12/2. Then, on Sunday, November 29, an additional diagnosis was confirmed, and the determination was made to extend 100% remote learning through the rest of the week. However, following the discovery of additional individuals testing positive, the closure of the building to students has been extended through December 9.

Though students are barred from the school, teachers were told that “all staff should continue to report to the school and provide instruction from your classrooms, unless you have been told otherwise.”

The school day will follow the regular hybrid bell schedule.

Plans are for the building to reopen for in-person instruction on Thursday, December 10, however the district will continue to monitor the potential for additional cases and will provide additional information if that date changes.
