PHS/PJHS Remote Learning for the week of 9-13-21 to 9-17-21.

While on remote learning, students will be expected to follow their normal time schedule. Attendance will be done much like we are in person, with the first-period teacher posting a Google Form asking the student if he/she is present. Students must log in to the form by 7:45 each morning to be counted present, and then they will follow their regular schedule. They will access their lessons through each teacher’s google classroom, and teachers will be in their classrooms ready to assist and available to answer any questions. Thank you for your flexibility and we look forward to seeing you in person again soon.

This week we have been experiencing a large increase in the number of absences from students as well as staff. With much consideration, we have come up with the following plan of action:

Next week, Monday, September 13th through Friday, September 17th the district will be 100% virtual/online learning. No students are to report to school, but will be required to complete work via Chromebooks/Google Classroom or what your students' teachers assign.

This Friday, September 10th will be a waiver day for students. All staff will report on regular schedule.

We will return to 100% in-person instruction on Monday, September 20th.

When we return to in-person instruction, we will return to mandatory masks for students and staff from September 20th - 24th. We will reevaluate our mandatory mask situation on Friday, September 24th.

Please check the district webpage and/or Facebook for updates.

Thank you, again for your cooperation and understanding,
Portsmouth City School District
