• Dear Parents / Guardians,


    As we move through our first few days of virtual learning, the PRHS guidance department would like to make you aware that counselors are available during the virtual school day to help support the needs of students and parents. 


    Student conferences regarding scheduling for the 2020-2021 school year will still take place during the virtual school days.  Counselors are available via email, phone and Schoology conferencing to conduct these meetings/conferences.  Counselors will be reaching out to the students via email to schedule these appointments. 


    If you would like to schedule a conference for any reason with a counselor or a teacher, please contact your child’s school counselor at the email address below to arrange an appointment date and time.
