I am sorry for the brevity of this note; there is currently an investigation of one of our HS teaching staff. No students are in danger. At PPHS our number one concern is student safety we consistently strive to ensure every student has the right to feel physically and emotionally safe. The teacher is on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.
Thank you for your support as we continue to strive for excellence."
