Greetings PTHS 209 Parents and Students,

Welcome Back to the 2011-2012 School Year!

Today freshman orientation has been a huge success. We welcomed 2,050 new students into our schools for what is sure to be a fantastic new year. Tomorrow is the first day of school for ALL students. Here are a few updates and reminders:

  • Tomorrow, Thursday, August 18th,  school will resume on regular schedule. Class starts at 7:50 a.m. The school day ends at 3:20 p.m. We are pushing for record attendance.
  • Bus service will resume for Proviso East and Proviso West students. Bus stop information is available on the web at www.PTHS209.org, or you may contact the Transportation Hotline if you have questions regarding bus stop pick-up locations. Proviso East’s Transportation Hotline number is 708.202.1825. Proviso West’s Transportation Hotline number is 708.202.6299.
  • All fall sports and practices will resume as scheduled. Activity buses will be available again this year to transport PMSA students to East and West after school. However, after school transportation home from extracurricular activities will not be available.
  • All parents are encouraged to check into their students’ PowerSchool to begin monitoring student progress and attendance from day one.

If you have any other questions regarding the start of school, please contact your school’s main office (Proviso East: 708.344.7000, Proviso West: 708.449.6400, PMSA: 708.338.4100). Thank you very much for all that you will do to help make this school year a success. We are looking forward to working with you and for you.  Let us make 2011-2012 our best school year yet.
