Dear Parents/Guardians: 

As you may have heard, Governor Herbert and State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson have extended the “soft school closure” until the end of the school year.  Although we are disappointed that we will not be able to work with students in our usual manner, we understand why the decision was made and fully support them.  That being said, we now will need to address a variety of very unique situations.

Census 2020

The U.S. Census Bureau has embarked on a nationwide effort to inform everyone living in the United States and five of its territories about the upcoming 2020 Census and to encourage them to respond online, by phone, or by mail.

Everyone counts. The census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right places.

It’s about fair representation. Every 10 years, the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets.

Congratulations to Renik Carman for receiving the Mayor's Award in March.  Here is what his teachers had to say about him.  COngratulations!  We are lucky to have you here at PJHS. Renik is kind to all the students in his class, including those who are sometimes hard to get along with. He is an exemplary student, has a good attitude, and is always so helpful to his classmates. During remediation time, when he is caught up, he chooses to help other students with their work instead of any fun activity he could be doing!
