HS Connect Ed Message – November 12

Hello.  This is Paula Husar, principal of Palmerton Area Senior High School.  Yesterday, student progress reports were mailed home for the half-way point of the second marking period at the high school.  You should expect to receive the reports in the mail in the near future.  If you have any questions and/or concerns, please contact your child’s teacher.  After that, you can reach out to me or the guidance counselor.  Please know that tomorrow – Friday – is an Act 80 day.  This day is a professional development day for teachers.  It is a day off for the students, so there will be no classes. 

Also, just a reminder … If a student misses a virtual day of school, regardless of whether they are completely virtual or hybrid, we need to have a valid excuse note for the absence in order for it to be considered as excused.  You can take a picture of a note with a parent or guardian’s signature and send it to jcohen@palmerton.org.   Again, this is not optional.  A valid excuse note is needed to consider the “absence” as excused.  If you need more details or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I would be happy to review these matters with you.  

Thank you and stay healthy.  Enjoy the rest of your evening.
