A Note From The Principal

Welcome back Scholars! It is my pleasure to welcome parents, scholars, teachers and our PLA community to the 2020-21 school year at the George and Veronica Phalen Leadership Academy. I hope you had a wonderful summer. Our goal is to engage you academically and prepare you for the future. Along with that task, this year we are accelerating our safety efforts and following CDC guidelines to ensure your child’s safety.

I look forward to seeing each of you at one of our back to school Zoom meetings on ether July 16th at 6:00 pm or on July 17th at 11:00 am. Again welcome back!
