Important Safety Announcement for P-H-M Parents

This morning we were informed by the superintendent of Plymouth Community Schools that a male substitute teacher who has been subbing there, and more recently here at P-H-M, was arrested in Texas several years ago for soliciting sex from a minor.  A patron in Argos recognized the man while watching an episode of NBC's "Dateline:To Catch a Predator."  In that episode the offender was caught on videotape, and he was named and identified as a teacher.

Families offered assistance with lunch and textbook fees

We encourage families who are struggling to meet expenses to apply for the National School Lunch Program’s free and reduced-price lunch. The application is easy to fill out (only one per household is required) and the application includes a place to indicate that you would also like to apply for textbook assistance (see Part 6. Other Benefits, mark “Yes” and sign where needed on the application).
