Thursday, June 9 is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL.  There was a change to the dismissal info we shared last week for students in grades 6-12.  OMS and SMS will dismiss at 9:30 AM.  Elementary Schools will dismiss at 11:45 AM.  At PHS, only students who have been notified by their teachers and have incomplete work (i.e.- assignments, projects, assessments, etc.), should report to school on the 9th. PHS parents can refer to today's email for further details.
