Class Meetings with Administration on Monday 2/1 & Tuesday 2/2

There will be no Zoom classes on Monday 2/1 or Tuesday 2/2 as our teachers attend inservice meetings, participate in professional development sessions and prepare for the 2nd Semester.


Instead, students must attend their Class Meeting with Administration on the correct day and time below:


9th and 10th grade Meeting: Monday February 1, 2021@ 1pm


11th and 12th grade Meeting: Tuesday February 2, 2021 @ 1pm

SEMESTER 2 BEGINS WEDS. FEB 3rd!

The second half of the school year kicks off on Wednesday, February 3rd. Students should sign in for attendance and attend all of their new Zoom classes. This will be the first day for students in their new courses with new teachers.


2nd Semester Rosters were mailed home and emailed to students. Students should also check their school email and look for an email from each of their new teachers. When they login to Schoology (www.petchs.Schoology.com), students will automatically be enrolled in their new classes. They can find their teacher's Zoom link along with information about their classes and weekly assignments from their teachers on Schoology.

Zoom Classes - Schedule Change for S2

During the 2nd Semester, students will attend ALL of their classes Monday through Thursday. A copy of the new schedule was mailed home with rosters and can also be found on our school website. Students will still have an asynchronous day on Fridays when they must complete and submit all of their weekly assignments in Schoology to their teachers by 3pm. There will also still be Open Zoom time for extra help from teachers on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 1:50 each day. Resource / Learning Support Zooms are also still on the schedule .

Report Cards

1st Semester Report Cards will be mailed the week of February 8th. Students who failed courses and therefore did not earn credit, will be contacted about our credit recovery program. If you do not receive a report card by February 15th, please call the Academics Office at 267-514-1823 ext. 221 or email Ms. Barnes at barness@petchs.org.
