Mrs. Jodi Fernandez

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year at PHS where our overaching goal is an 87% graduation rate, and students increase their Regents Examination results by 5%!  
Academic Expectations
All students must attend their virtual or hybrid class daily--except for on Wednesdays when students will receive asynchronous instruction that builds upon the skills that are being introduced and developed in class.  On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays our lessons will be livestreamed.  During livestreaming lessons students must
~Mute their microphones except for when speaking to the instructor and/or participating in group discussion.  There must be no background noise.
~Only the student enrolled in the class should be viewed by the teacher - no exceptions.
~Students must participate in the entire lesson in order to be marked present.
~Students must use appropriate language in the virtual classroom at all times.
~Cameras must be turned on.
~All coursework must be submitted through Google Classroom on the date that it is due.  If you need more time to work on an assignment, please send me an email as soon as possible. 
***Thank you in advance for your cooperation***
