Principal's Corner

Yá'át'ééh, Greetings Sand Devil Families,

Greetings, Yá'át'ééh.  As we begin the 2020-2021 school year, Page High School continues our commitment to high quality teaching and learning within a safe and healthy learning environment. 

 The Sand Devil staff is working hard to prepare for learning that meets the needs of all students.  Remote teaching and learning is a new experience for all of us; however, we have been preparing for this new learning environment all summer.  Our teachers and instructional staff are involved in a 7 day training starting July 30.  This training will allow all to be prepared to deliver high quality teaching that will result in continued learning. 

 I want to thank each of you for the key role you played last spring to keep your child connected to learning and earning credits.  You will continue to play a very important role in your child’s education as we go through school year 2020-2021.  Make sure that PHS has your current contact information in PowerSchool. Contact Mikaila Yellowhair (our attendance clerk and front office receptionist) at 928-608-4135 or Kristy Rivers (our registrar) at 928-608-4142 to verify your phone number, email address, and mailing address.

 Our first day of school was August 10th and we will began the school year in remote learning. Remote learning does not mean that your child is online the entire school day. Remote learning does mean your child should stay connected to their learning from 8:00am-3:00pm (lunch is 12:30-1:00). Expect your child to be completing independent practice, working on projects, meeting with teachers or counselors during office hours, or working offline. 

 Your child will receive an email (through their school gmail account) that includes their Google Classroom class codes.  An email will be sent from each of their teachers. These emails will be sent on August 6th. The first two days of school (August 10th-11th) will be focused on school-wide lessons that allow our students to become familiar with the new learning environment. Content learning will begin on August 12th.

 Students will use the A/B calendar to attend their classes.  August 10th is an A day; students will attend periods 1,2,4, and 5. August 11th is a B day; students will attend periods 6, 7, 9, and 10.  The A/B days rotate back-and-forth each day.  (See our A/B calendar included in this mailing.)  We are working on a schedule for students to attend their Student Advisory class.  Details will be communicated as they are developed.

 Chromebooks and learning supplies were distributed August 3rd-5th.  If you were unable to pick up those items, call the school office at 928-608-4135.  We will do our best to have things ready for you when you are able to stop by the office.  Please call before you come in.

We look forward to serving you this school year.


Ahéhee', Thank you,

Anne Martin
