ACADEMIC SUPPORT & UPDATES
Students/parents interested in Pass/In Progress grading - contact your counselor
For a variety of reasons, students may be designated Pass/In Progress. This option for students must be requested by the parent/guardian and will be determined/approved by school administration through the PWHS Student Support Team. A Pass/In Progress will be determined for all classes if designated by the Student Support Team. Teachers will continue to enter traditional grades in the gradebook; however, a designation of Pass or In Progress will be entered at the end of the semester.
Students that receive an In Progress grade for the semester will be able to have an opportunity to earn a Pass (P) by completing required work in the week long make-up time from June 1-5 (formerly Finals) or during summer school. Summer School expectations to earn a Pass (P) will be determined through instructional staff and administration. Summer school classes may be in person or virtual as determined by the school district, health department, and the State of Wisconsin. Students that do not earn a Pass (P) by the conclusion of summer school will receive a Failure in the gradebook for that course.

Online Mental Health Resources for Teens
Feeling like you are isolated and in need of support?
Reach out through these online resources focused on TEENS!
The goal of OK2TALK is to create a community for teens and young adults struggling with mental health problems and encourage them to talk about what they’re experiencing by sharing their personal stories of recovery, tragedy, struggle or hope. Anyone can add their voice by sharing creative content such as poetry, inspirational quotes, photos, videos, song lyrics and messages of support in a safe, moderated space.
Speaking of Hope
This web site was created to be the go-to site to connect young adults who have lived mental health experiences. The site was created by young adults, for young adults and includes resources, job boards, and support group listings.
Your Life, Your Voice is supported by the Boys Town National Hotline, and provides several ways for teens to get connected with someone to discuss any issue that is impacting them in the moment such as feeling depressed, contemplating suicide, being physically or sexually abused, on the run, addicted, threatened by gang violence, fighting with a friend or parent, or if you are faced with an overwhelming challenge.
Crisis Text Line
Every texter is connected with a crisis counselor, a real-life human being trained to bring texters from a hot moment to a cool calm through active listening and collaborative problem solving. All of Crisis Text Line’s crisis counselors are volunteers, donating their time to helping people in crisis.
