Welcome to the return of school. This is a quick note to let you know that our communication system is still down but we hopefully will get it going early next week. Second, we have had a few questions on whether we are offering online learning as an option again. Unfortunately, we are not. Based on several factors, we have made the needed decision to no longer engage in online learning. While compassionate and time appropriate, it was not academically beneficial for our students. The academic results of PBHS decreased more than other schools around us who did not offer the same type of online learning. As a result, we are not going to be continuing in that direction. Teachers will be looking at other strategies for students that have the occasional absence from school. More will come on this.
