LETTER FROM SUPERINTENDENT KILGORE CONCERNING TOMORROW’S ATTENDANCE

Dear PTHS Parents, Students, and Staff: An attendance decision will be made very early Friday morning of January 9th.  I hope we will safely attend.  We respect parental decisions on these days we decide to attend.  Poor weather conditions will impact us each winter.  Decisions to cancel or attend school are not taken lightly considering numerous factors. For cold cancellations, PTHS District 90 is typically cancelled when wind chill levels project frostbite in less than 30 minutes. We have back up plans designed to pick up students in the rare instance it would be needed. Students should dress appropriately for winter weather conditions. Please let us know if you are aware of families who need assistance...
