October Newsletter

PCM High School

PCM High School’s purpose is to develop self-sufficient citizens who are ready for the next stages of life. We will facilitate and foster student growth academically, socially, and emotionally through inclusive and rigorous curriculum. Our students will graduate with an understanding of who they are individually as the best version of themselves and make lasting contributions in their communities.

Michele's Mustangs

PCM High School secretary Michele Lanphier has been diagnosed with cancer. The students have designed a t-shirt to help fundraise money for medical and travel costs that Michele's family may incur. There's only a few days left to help. You don't need to buy a shirt to donate!


Vape Sensors

As a reminder, PCM High School has vape sensors in various locations throughout the building. The sensors are designed to send a signal electronically to administration if any vapor from an electronic cigarette device is detected, there is an abnormally high level of noise in the bathroom or if the sensors are tampered with in any way. These sensors have been installed in an effort to improve the health and safety of our students.

The consequences for use or possession of tobacco or tobacco look-alike

products on PCM property are as follows:

  • Possession or use of tobacco or tobacco look-alike products: 2 days out of school suspension

  • Possession, use, or distribution of any illegal drugs: 10 days out of school suspension with possibility of expulsion

  • Tampering/Destruction of PCM property, including vape sensors: Up to 2 days out of school suspension and payment for the damage.

If the student is an athlete or involved in PCM activities, there are also Code of Conduct violations that will be issued accordingly.

Because the sensors are designed to detect very low levels of vapor, if administration is alerted that vapor has been detected and a student is seen coming out of the bathroom or locker room at that moment they will be subject to search according to PCM Board Policy 502.10: Search and Seizure.
