2017-2018 School Calendar Now Available

P-H-M families can plan ahead with the 2017-2018 school year calendar.


The calendar displays start and end dates, scheduled breaks and recesses and—most importantly—180 instructional days for P-H-M students! 


Some patrons may notice that no “snow make-up days” have been built into the 2017-2018 calendar. With the district’s successful implementation of eLearning—which takes place outside the classroom on days that school is canceled—additional days do not need to be scheduled.
