PHS Distance Learning
Distance learning is a concept derived by the need to maintain educational expectations while we are not able to access the traditional classroom setting. Our staff is dedicated to making this process as effective as possible. This site is intended to collect resources and information for all Students and Parents to access without the confusion of several emails.

Department Distance Learning Plans
These planning documents are designed by our teaching staff to help students and parents be aware of how they can access learning. The documents are designed for weekly updating as the teacher's plans may change. If your teachers have not updated the plan week to week then the original plan is current.
