We would like to welcome all parents and students back to PHS for the 2021- 2022 school year. We would also like to formally welcome the class of 2025 to PHS! We are excited to welcome students back to in-person learning.


We are still expecting students and staff to follow COVID 19 protocols. COVID 19 resources and information can be found using this link. The nursing staff at the PHS campus have been working extremely hard to keep the students and staff safe, and they deserve a big thank you!


Pennsbury High School administration and faculty invite you to attend this year's Virtual Back-to-School Night on Thursday, September 30th. Live teacher presentations via Google Meet will begin at 6:30 pm and will continue throughout the evening according to the schedule below. The purpose of this year’s Virtual Back-to-School Night is to replicate your child’s FIRST SEMESTER - DAY 1 schedule, meet their teachers, and learn about each course.


To participate in live teacher presentations, please access each course’s unique Google Meet link by logging into your child’s Canvas account. Use your student’s account information through his or her chromebook or a personal device. Once logged into Canvas, meet links can be found in one of two locations on September 30th:

  1. Posted towards the bottom of each course’s homepage.

  2. Posted as an announcement which can be found in the upper left hand corner of the course’s homepage.


Our instructional technology department has been working diligently to make sure that teachers and students have the tools they need to be academically successful. Information will be provided later in the newsletter for how parents can check student grades in Canvas. More information about Canvas resources and information can be found here. The Google site contains information about the Canvas Family Support Site, and it gives a way for parents to submit help tickets if there are questions about how to use canvas.


As usual, we encourage you to reach out to your teachers, guidance counselors, and/or administrators for any questions that you have.


Here at Pennsbury High School, we are exceptionally proud of our school community

and all of the stakeholders who contribute to make this a great place to live and

learn. As a school community, we embrace our district’s mission statement:


“Recognizing our proud traditions and diverse community, the Pennsbury School

District prepares all students to become creative, ethical, and critical thinkers for

lifelong success in a global society.”


We strive to uphold these ideals every day in our interactions with all stakeholders. We’re looking forward to a great school year!

Checking Assignment Grades in Canvas

  1. No individual assignment grades will be entered in TAC this year. They will only be in Canvas. Thus, it is more important than ever for you (parents) to create your own Observer accounts in Canvas to be able to monitor your students' performance. Not only will this allow you to see assignment grades, as they did in TAC, but you will be able to see much more, including assignment details, the actual student submission, all teacher comments and feedback, and more. Please use this this document to create and manage your own Observer account. Parents can use this link with to specifically show them how to access grades in Canvas.
  • Note that EACH Observer can and should have their own account. There is no limit to how many Observers can be paired with a particular student.
  • In order to create an Observer account and/or to pair with an additional student, parents will need to access a pairing code for each of their children. The students can generate this code from their accounts, as can any teacher, counselor, or administrator. Once a parent is paired with a student once, the pairing lasts for the remainder of their time in Pennsbury.


2. TAC will still be used for daily attendance and for final report card grades, including ECA grades.
