Based on community feedback and in the interest of safety, PHS is rerouting our a.m./p.m. traffic patterns. Maps of the amended patterns are linked below.

To help ensure the health and safety of all our students and staff, we ask that parents please consider
funding their student’s meal account online through MySchoolBucks.
This will help minimize the amount of cash/check deposits that need to be handled throughout the day, which allows us to focus on serving meals as fast and efficiently as possible.
Create your free MySchoolBucks account to conveniently and securely add money to your student’s
meal account online or with the mobile app. With MySchoolBucks you’ll also be able to view cafeteria
purchases, check your student’s balance, and receive low balance alerts.
If you need assistance with your account, you can find helpful how-to videos and answers to commonly
asked questions by visiting myschoolbucks.com. Or, you can contact MySchoolBucks directly by logging
into your account to start a chat conversation or give them a call at (855) 832-5226.

All School will be offering Ala Carte items for your student to purchase.

If you are requesting a bus stop for your child that is different than the one assigned to your home address, please utilize this form and turn it into your school for processing.
Please understand that processing may take up to three to five days. During the beginning of the school year, routing for students riding the bus to and from the bus stop associated with the home address on file takes priority.
Additional stop/change requests will be handled as quickly as we are able to do so. Thank you for your understanding.
