THIS WEEK in HUMANITIES… 

News & information for the week of March 6th 


PHBAO STATUS – THANK YOU PARENTS! 

Whether you personally had a chance to respond to the “Urgent Message” we sent out on Friday or not, VERY MANY calls & letters were received by the District from our concerned families. Our voices were HEARD in a loud and clear way. Thank you!! 


At this point, our school has applied for an appeal, asking to receive an extra year to correct our PHBAO information. That appeal is under review by the District and NEEDS TIME to allow the process to move forward without excessive communication from us. In respect for this process, and understanding that too much communication will hurt our cause, rather than help it, we are asking our families to NOT CALL or write further. 


Thank you for taking the time to educate yourselves on PHBAO and how it affects our school. Thank you for acting on our students’ behalf. We are proud to live amongst such an active and engaged group of parents!
