PJHS Parents and Students,


Attendance Tip

  • If your child is absent, work with the teacher to make sure she or he has an opportunity to learn and make up for the academics missed.

E-mail is a great way to keep in touch with teachers, it is very difficult to reach them over the phone because of class times. Please keep in touch if your student is missing multiple days.

10th Anniversary - PJHS Mt. Loafer Hike

Story by Eric Archer; Photos: Eric Archer, Alex Lewis, Mike Farley


Payson Junior High School offers 2 hikes a year, the Loafer Mountain hike in the Fall and the Big Tree hike in the Spring.  These are great outdoor activities that all students are welcome to attend.  Students that haven’t hiked with the school before need to qualify by passing a physical and written test.  The Loafer Mountain hike is a 12-mile round trip with a beautiful view of Utah Valley.
