PHHS Safety Concern

March 9, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I’m pleased to inform you that the safety concern (bomb threat) reported earlier today has been resolved.  No credible threat exists, and the building has been deemed safe.  As a result, students are reentering the building, and we are continuing with the instructional day.

While this is an unfortunate distraction, we will work to ensure our focus remains upon providing a safe environment for everyone where learning can occur.  In addition, we will continue to work in full cooperation with the Sheriff’s Office to identify the individual(s) responsible for this incident.

I hope this information is helpful and addresses any concerns you may have.  Thank you for your continued support of our efforts in providing a safe environment for our outstanding students and staff.

Kind regards,

Beth Smith

Principal
