We are in the need of an Educational Assistant at Elsie Rogers Elementary School! If you are interested in employment please contact Mrs. Campbell at ccampbell@phm.k12.in.us


Dear P-H-M Elementary Student and Family,

Another winter is just around the corner and again we must think about the possibility of bad weather, school closings, and lost instructional time.

As part of the new Indiana law HB-1093, schools are limited to three days of eLearning. Penn-Harris-MadisonSchool Corporation will use, if warranted, three weather related days as needed throughout the year. If additional makeup days are required, they will be added to the end of the school year calendar beginning on June 2. Principals will communicate with parents eLearning expectations and possible calendar adjustments throughout the year.

eLearning is designed to be delivered over the internet through a link the school or teacher provides. You will receive a form from your child’s classroom teacher which will include student login information for various websites to be used for eLearning. Teachers will be available by email during regularly scheduled school hours on days when school is closed and eLearning takes place.

In the event that your child has an IEP and receives direct service minutes during the school day, the Exceptional Education teacher will contact parents to make alternative arrangements if necessary.

Elementary Technology Instructions were sent home on Wednesday of this past week. This sheet will provided the instructions that you and your child will need to access the eLearning lessons. Along with this communication, if your family requested a chromebook, there was also information sent home on how to pick up your device.

Please contact your child’s teacher or principal with questions you may have.

For additional information on school closings and delays, visit www.phmschools.org/delaysclosings.

Thank you for partnering with P-H-M teachers and schools. Your support is crucial to your student's success, and it is greatly appreciated.

Dr. Heather Short

Assistant Superintendent for Instruction

Free Meals and Textbook Assistance

Your family may be eligible for assistance paying for cafeteria meals and school fees.

Households that meet the financial guidelines of the National School Lunch Program are eligible for free or reduced meal prices, as well as a discount applied to textbook rental fees. To receive this support parents must apply annually and provide information that serves to verify household income. The application is easy to fill out (choose online or paper format) and it includes a place to indicate that you also want to apply for textbook assistance. Please make sure to submit only one form (application) per household, even if the children are in different schools.

(Applications for the 2022-23 school year will be accepted beginning July 1st, 2022)

We encourage ALL Elsie Rogers parents to apply online at this website: www.schoolcafe.com.
