Hats and Backpacks
1. Hats - This is not a new expectation, it has been a school dress code issue for many years. Students are not allowed to wear hats in the classrooms or hallways of PHS.
2. Backpacks - This was a new expectation for this school year, and has been difficult for many of our students to get used to. Students are expected to store backpacks in their lockers, lockers may be accessed during passing period or with the permission of a teacher during class.

A site council is a commitment to the school in hopes of making it the best school it can be. It is a time commitment, but it is also a commitment to seek solutions to areas of weakness in our system. A great school is always seeking ways to improve and a site council helps to lead those improvements.
If you would like more information about serving on the Pleasanton High School site council, please contact Sara Conley at email@example.com.
Sportsmanship and Rule 52
At all events, our goal is to provide a positive experience for our athletes and coaches. We want to cheer them on, provide encouragement and support them whether they win or lose. PHS Pride has been a goal this year, and our students have risen to the occasion, they show up and cheer each other on. I am so proud that our student section is growing into a fun and positive environment for our fans and athletes.
Below is the link to Rule 52 from KSHSAA - I encourage you to review these rules with your family. As we approach basketball season, you will see more leadership from our students in the area of sportsmanship, prior to each game our athletes will provide these reminders to fans to help promote a positive environment.
