Principal's Message

Happy New Year, PHS Parents! I hope that this new year is off to a great start for your family.

We were so excited to be able to bring nearly all of our students back on campus Wednesday for face to face instruction. It was a joyous day for our PHS staff members because we saw so many wonderful student faces that we were missing. We will continue with our social distancing and cleaning protocols to ensure the health & safety of students, staff members, and all extended family members. I am very proud of how well our students and staff members have adjusted to the new procedures this year. I know you would be proud and amazed at the excellent job our students have done of wearing their masks, social distancing, and helping with the campus cleaning protocols. Thank you, parents, for supporting your student(s) and our school. Please check out the important reminders about changes to campus procedures in light of COVID-19.

Positive Note for a PISD Staff Member

Please share your gratitude for our awesome staff members.

Junior/Senior Prom...To be or not to be?

Many parents and students have asked about the status of our annual Junior/Senior Prom. Here is the most up to date information:

  • We are still planning to host prom on Saturday, February 20th @ 8:00 p.m.
  • Location: Las Fuentes by Emporium, 11624 Culebra Road, San Antonio
  • Currently the venue is operating at 50% capacity.
  • All attendees will be required to wear face masks that cover their nose, mouth, and chin.
  • Additional safety and sanitizing protocols will be utilized.

As we all know, this plan is subject to change, but we think it is important to move forward with our plans to host a prom so that our students can have the experience. We will closely monitor the conditions and communicate any changes to students and parents as soon as possible.

We recognize the uncertainty makes committing financial resources to an event like prom difficult for families. For tips on saving money when planning for prom click here.
