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
Zoom links for these meeting were emailed to students.
SEMESTER 2 BEGINS WEDS. FEB 3rd!
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.
